2. Alternatively, you can purchase the “See Hong Kong Pass” directly at one of the Hong Kong attractions such as the Big Bus Tour company, one of the participating museums or the Turbojet Ticket counters.
The Bottomline: Is it worthwhile to purchase this “See Hong Kong Pass”? It really depends how long you stay in Hong Kong, what kind of priorities you have and which attractions you would like to see. Certainly, if you are interested in the Dim Sum cooking class and taking the ferry to Macau it will save you some money. If you are just interested to take the Star Ferry and going up the Peak with the Peak Tram it won’t benefit you. Make sure you do the math and read the fine prints (e.g. the Macau Ferry ticket is just a one way ticket) and base your decisions on your needs.
