Song of Sunset on the River
A length setting sun spread water in
Half river emerald half river red
Love ninth month first three night
Dew like pearl moon like bow
A strip of water‘s spread in the setting sun,
Half the river‘s emerald, half is red.
I love the third night of the ninth month,
The dew is like pearl; the moon like a bow.
Star Ferry, a company established in 1898, looks back on a history of over 100 years serving the people in Hong Kong. A total of twelve ferries carry up to 70,000 people daily between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. After all these years it is still the most exciting way to shuttle between the two centers of the Asian metropolis. Following a very tight schedule the boats cross the harbour in less than ten minutes and despite the fact that there are alternatives available, like the subway and street tunnels, it is still the most inexpensive and probably the most exciting way to commute between the islands. The Star Ferries have been the only mean of public transportation for many decades. Boarding one of the ferries is still an adventure everyone staying in the city should experience at least once.
