Hong Kong Report: Aqua Luna

In the previous blog entry, I talked about seeing Hong Kong by air, aboard a helicopter. To see Hong Kong by sea, I think there's no better way than taking a traditional Chinese junk boat.

Aqua Luna is one of Hong Kong's last remaining traditional red-sail Chinese junks.

Possibly the last handcrafted traditional red-sail junk using age old designs and traditional materials by an 80 year old local craftsman.

The most stylish ride to discover Hong Kong's magnificent skyline and harbour views. We took a 45-minute Victoria Harbour cruise at 5.30pm from Central ferry Pier 9 on Hong Kong Island, and disembarked in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. If you are thinking that it will cost a bomb, you thought wrong. It costs HK$190 (approximately S$36 or US$30) and includes a drink.

These comfy loungers reminded me of those used in opium dens.

Here are some snapshots taken with my Blackberry Bold camera. When the view is great, it doesn't take much effort to take great pics... well, except that you need a good eye to find the right angles. :)
