The party bus, a staple of bachelor/bachelorette parties and corporate retreats, just got a serious upgrade in Hong Kong, where a company called Crystal Bus has built a double-decker rolling restaurant with all sorts of bells and whistles. For HK$380 (around $50), guests aboard the Crystal Bus can enjoy a seven-course dim sum feast from a local Michelin-starred restaurant, while gliding around Hong Kong.
The cabin is outfitted with around HK$300,000 ($39,000) worth of crystals (hence the name Crystal Bus), plus a TV, stereo system, karaoke, and video games. Per the official Crystal Bus homepage, the dinner menu includes shrimp dumplings, barbecued pork, radish cakes, spring rolls, guinea fowl, and dessert. The food is provided by local hot spot One Dim Sum. Optional audio guides are also available in English, Korean, Mandarin, Japanese, and Cantonese.
The company’s founder, Hong Ka-hung, sunk HK$10 million (around $1.3 million) into this new project, and he hopes to launch eight more of these busses in Hong Kong over the next five years.
