Photographer's Note

Taken in the Star Ferry Terminal in Kowloon, as I was waiting to cross to Hong Kong island that you can see in the background. It is a pleasure to cross from Kowloon to the island, by day and night, but especially at night with all the Hong Kong buildings lights are reflecting in the bay.

The small distinctive green and white ferries of the Star Ferry Service are transportation means on sea which have linked the Central District on Hong Kong Island with Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon peninsula district) over the past 100 years. The journey takes about 10 minutes. On board the Ferry, you can see both banks of Victoria Harbour, the Commerce Tower, the Bank of China that looks like a sharp file, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in the shape of geometric figure, the Exchange Square of Bond Centre and Stock Exchange, and the Legislative Council Building in the structural style of the Victorian Era. Far away, the Hong Kong Conference Exhibition Center in which the grand ceremony for the restoration of sovereignty of Hong Kong to the motherland and the Central District Center where the outer wall of the first Hong Kong Commercial Towering computer to control the illuminating system are all visible.

The metro is one of the daily modes of transport in Hong Kong. Please have a look on TrekLens at the Subway
