"the evergreen Ferry" Hong Kong by kenHuocj

Hong Kong Travel Guide: 8,370 reviews and 20,332 photos

Star Ferry links Tsimshatsui, Kowloon and HK Central,
regular fast and efficient, lower or upper deck,

The Fragrant Harbour,
centre of Laissez Faire Trade,
where the Tai Pans ruled and continue to rule
albeit via expats and international multinationals
but
it is evolving
remains vibrant.

*** for Wahkiew / Hauren / Huayi who are near or in their final year of studies visit WWW.chinasynergy.org.hk ***
it's chauvansitic but wish I was younger to apply ;-(((

Have visited many times,
but regret not having stayed year plus
whilst working/studying there

    The grand hotel...The Peninsula is certainly one of the best hotels in the world! It'll be in my dream to stay there for even a night....

    Having lived here for over 7 years, I still cannot put up the money to eat and drink at The Peninsula!
