Hong Kong will have its daring new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal operational by mid-2013 with additional capacity established within the year. Perfectly placed just at the edge of Hong Kong's heart, the spectacular new terminal is expected to drastically increase tourism.

Kai Tak is a familiar name to many travellers bringing to some of them a glimpse of nostalgia. Until 1998, Kai Tak was in fact the name of Hong Kong International Airport. With its single runway encircled by the city, the airport offered some of the world’s most spectacular landing…
The old airport has been vacated now for over 15 years and it will soon be synonymous to Hong Kong new cruise terminal. Located in East Kowloon, it is ideally located, less than 10 km away from all major attractions in the former British territory.
The future Kai Tak Cruise terminal will be spectacular in many aspects. First due to its architecture as Hong Kong selected one of the world’s most famous architects, Norman Foster. The site on the south-western tip of the old runway offers dramatic unobstructed views of the eastern entrance to Hong Kong Harbour.
