HONG KONG - A Cruise in Victoria Harbour

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos from Victoria Harbour ... but not the typical Star Ferry between Central and Kowloon. Instead, this is a ferry service from North Point to Kowloon City in the eastern part of the harbour. Tourists rarely use this service. In fact, the number of ferries running in this part of the harbour has decreased over the past few decades as people switched to cars and transit using the tunnels under the harbour.

1. Harbourfront Landmark is clearly visible from the North Point ferry terminal.

2. Many traditional boats frequent the area. In fact, some drop off their fresh seafood in the previous night's catch and vendors sell them right at the pier.

3. East Kowloon is visible in the background.

Those are very nice pictures, thank you for sharing!! That city is quite the agglomeration of high rises - and the harbour is beautiful.

What is the status of that mountain/bluff seen in picture 19? It looks like it is being mined away..
