Hong Kong’s Star Ferry May End Up Being Shut Down After 142 Years


This is a sad story which I read recently… It is such a fun way to cross Victoria Harbour between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Last time when I was in Hong Kong we stayed at the hotel on the Island and used it daily to get across. But the ridership is down so much that company is bleeding money each and every day.
