The Crystal Bus in Hong Kong is currently making waves on the Internet for serving Michelin-star dim sum dishes while showing tourists the magnificence of the city.

The Shanghaiist reported that the double deck beauty started its operations on Wednesday, boasting of its gaming console, large television sets, and a whopping HK$300,000 value of crystals decked out on the bus, hence its name.

A tourist passenger may take advantage of the extravagance for HK$380. Alongside touring the city, one is able to enjoy 7 dim sum servings that are personally prepared by local Michelin-star restaurants. The tour also allows passengers to enjoy video games, Karaoke, and other local and internal TV programs or movies.

The Crystal Bus can accommodate a maximum of 47 tourists who can take either of two tours happening each day which last for 2.5 hours each. The bus is set to parade 20 local attractions around the New Territories, Hong Kong Island, and Kowloon.

Private tours are also available at night time for five hours which amounts to a total of HK$8,000 during the weekdays. HK$12,800, on the other hand, is charged for weekend night time private tours. It may be more expensive than the average daily day time attraction, but for these prices, the tourists may choose their itinerary as long as they are within the five-hour bounds.

The Crystal Bus was founded by Hong Ka-hung. He reportedly spent a hefty amount of HK$10 Million in getting the bus designed. He plans to produce five to eight more buses in the next half a decade.
