Hong Kong Harbour Tours – DUK LING
The Last Authentic Traditional Fishing Junk

DUK LING was built in Macau in 1950s and served as fishing boat in Hong Kong till 1985. It was restored to her original glory and re-sails on Victoria Harbour since 2005. It is an icon of Hong Kong and “the only inheritant sailing junk in Hong Kong”. It represents Hong Kong’s glorious history as well as the impression of Hong Kong while Hong Kong was a fishing village.

Taking the DUK LING Chinese Junk Boat is not only a rare opportunity to ride aboard on the last authentic Chinese sailing junk in Hong Kong, but probably the most authentic and memorable way to enjoy Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong skyline. Drifting on Victoria Harbour with this special harbour tour will bring you back to the past and you can almost feel Hong Kong’s history of traders, taipans, fishermen and colonial history.

Star Ferry
The Historic Harbour Ride, More Than Transportation

Taking the iconic Star Ferry is actually a no-brainer. It’s the most convenient and cheapest Harbour Tour available in Hong Kong. We highly recommend taking Star Ferry at least once to cross Victoria Harbour during your stay in Hong Kong.

There are three different tours/rides of Star Ferry : traditional Star Ferry Ride, Star Ferry Harbour Tour (around Victoria Harbour) as well as Star Ferry Water Tour (sail to further distance).

Hong Kong Harbour Tours - Star Ferry Harbour Tour

Star Ferry Harbour Tour

Star Ferry Ride – Must-Do

Strictly speaking, taking a short ride on Star Ferry as is not a Harbour Tour in the classical sense where you have a tour guide explaining everything and even getting some refreshments. Star Ferry is Hong Kong’s classical public transportation for crossing Victoria Harbour. But it is much more than transportation. Locals and tourists both enjoy to use this as Harbour Tour.

It is appealing also due to the unbeatable ticket price (HK$ 2.5 on weekdays and HK$ 3.4 on weekends/upper deck). You can either go from Tsim Sha Tsui to Wan Chai or Central and vice versa. The only drawback is that the journey only last 8-10 minutes. However, for those who don’t have enough time for an one-hour Harbour Tour or are afraid of staying on water for long time, it is a great compromise.
