flight by helicopter around Hong KongHi
Does anyone have experience with the helicopter flight around Hong Kong? I read about flight from Hong Kong to Macau. Is it also possible just to make a tour around Hongkong (with or without Hong Kong)? Is a helicopter flight the money worth?
Thanks for answering!

1Yes, there are tourist services that offer flights around HK.
They are expensive. Whether it would be worthwhile would depend on the weather. HK is absolutely stunning on the (very few) days a year when the sky is really blue.

2Hi, as SingObserver 'observed', heliservices do offer this service.
I contacted them by email and phone and they seem to be reliable, professional and flexible.
They offer a number of packages, with or without 'face massage', no joke, check them out on their website.
There is a way to spend less if you wish to by halving the time you spend on board. This involves flying from the Peninsula Hotel rooftop to the Wan Chai helicopter. The flight is advertised as a 15 min flight, and costs half of the 30 minutes flights offered on the Heliservices site.
I believe that these shorter flights are managed by a tour operator who hires the helicopter at given times during the day from heliservices.
If you google around you will see what's available.
I will (weather permitting) take the 30 min flight around HK Island with a little detour over Kowloon... can't wait...

4I'm flying at the end of March.
By the way I noticed I gave you some wrong info. The minimum you can fly with Heliservices (according to their site) is 15 min (5,500 HKD, up to five people). The Peninusula cross strait flight must be only five minutes then, and is priced accordingly.
Operations must be ended by 5:30 pm so, we booked a 5:15 pm flight for 15 minutes.
Hope you do it...
