Here are some photos from Victoria Harbour ... but not the typical Star Ferry between Central and Kowloon. Instead, this is a ferry service from North Point to Kowloon City in the eastern part of the harbour. Tourists rarely use this service. In fact, the number of ferries running in this part of the harbour has decreased over the past few decades as people switched to cars and transit using the tunnels under the harbour.

1. Harbourfront Landmark is clearly visible from the North Point ferry terminal.


2. Many traditional boats frequent the area. In fact, some drop off their fresh seafood in the previous night's catch and vendors sell them right at the pier.


3. East Kowloon is visible in the background.

I must say.. the multi coloured building here is one of the strangest I have ever seen. I've walked by the base many times.


Thanks for posting. I felt as if I was really there.

There is one in Kowloon looks like the twin of Hotel ibis.

What is going on with the small mountain in the back of this photo? It looks like it is being dug or scraped. It doesn't look like natural erosion.
It's a quarry. I'm not sure whether it's still open, but it'll take quite a while for the vegetation to grow back.
