Hong Kong

Hong Kong - a foggy Victoria Harbour

 

Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. The harbour's deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong's establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Hong Kong junk boats once carried treasure across oceans. Now they host recreational missions that resemble everything from quiet historical tours to a wild Lan Kwai Fong party night.

 

After operating as a fishing boat for more than 25 years, the last authentic Hong Kong junk, the Duk Ling, was restored in the 1980s. It is now operated by the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

 

All you need to hop on this vintage beauty is a foreign passport and HK$100. Book ahead as this inexpensive hour-long cruise around Victoria Harbour is popular.
