Hong Kong is a city of contrasts and extremes – old and new, rich and poor, spicy and mild – it’s all here. With that in mind, one experience is a must for any visitor – chartering a junk boat. A junk, as it’s commonly called, is an ancient Chinese sailing ship that is still used today. It’s unique sails and shape make it one of the most elegant and graceful sailing boats on the open water.
As a visitor in Hong Kong, you can charter an entire junk for a set duration of time – which provides a private and beautiful experience on the harbor. For a less expensive route, you can purchase a seat on a group boat, which is a little less private but still very enjoyable.
If you’re visiting Hong Kong, don’t miss this boating adventure. You won’t regret it.
