HONG KONG. Road-starved and sleep-deprived residents can find the new Hong Kong bus tour a dream come true.

The five-hour, 47-mile drive on a regular double-decker bus is for people who can be easily lulled by long journeys. It was inspired by the tendency of tired passengers to fall asleep on public transport.

“When we were brainstorming about new tours, I saw a social media post from a friend of mine saying that he was nervous about his job, he couldn’t sleep at night,” said Kenneth Kong, Marketing Manager and business development ulu travel. bus tour organizer.

“But when he was on the bus, he could sleep well. His post inspired us to create this tour that allows passengers to just sleep on the bus. “

Tickets cost between $ 13 and $ 51 per person, depending on whether they choose to seat on the upper or lower deck. The passenger bag includes an eye mask and earplugs for better sleep.

The first Sleeping Bus Tour last Saturday sold out. Some passengers came prepared, brought their blankets and changed their shoes for slippers, while others brought travel pillows.
