South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Dream bus: Sleeping coach tours offer 5 hours of nap time on the road in Hong Kong” – below is their description.

A Hong Kong travel agency has rolled out a five-hour bus ride designed to help restless residents snooze on board. Organisers of the 83km (52 mile) tour were inspired by the common sight of tired commuters who fall asleep while taking public transport in the city. The trips start in Hong Kong’s western district of Tsuen Wan and head to the international airport in Chek Lap Kok. Each tour can handle about 70 passengers, who pay between HK$99 to HK$399 (US$13 to $51) for a chance to doze off, on the road.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
