Hong Kong Aqua Luna Junk
Taken on ferry crossing to Cheung Chau at the west end of Hong Kong Island with West Kowloon and Hong Kong’s most recent tallest building ICC in the distance. Most images of Aqua Luna have the world-famous skyline but this shows a very different side of Hong Kong.
The Aqua Luna is a gorgeous hand-crafted vessel run by the Aqua Restaurant Group of Beijing/London/HongKong fame. You are perhaps not sailing an original old traditional fishing junk as opposed to the Duk Ling, but still very much an adventure in exquisite and classy surroundings.
More importantly the 3 chartered junks running circles around Victoria harbour add a sense of the old and mystic east feeling to an ultra modern skyline.
If you’re looking at taking a cruise on the harbour it should be noted that almost anything that has an engine and holds passengers is called a junk but will not look anything like the three traditional junks.
The Duk Ling is “the” Hong Kong Junk. This true relic which underwent full restoration in the 1980’s, is an original junk used by fishermen and the last of its kind in Hong Kong waters. It has led parades during some of Hong Kong’s most iconic festivals, as well as when the giant rubber ducky sailed into Victoria Harbour. Tragically, Duk Ling sank during a typhoon in 2014 and regularly scheduled Harbour Cruises which were sponsored by the Hong Kong Tourism Board had to stop.
Two Hong Kong yacht traders, Yu Lik-hang and his aunt Cheng Ching-wah, have acquired Duk Ling from the previous owners and to great effort and expense, have managed to save the vessel. Duk Ling has once again as of June 13, 2015 commenced operations!
Duk Ling is the authentic but those looking at doing a harbour cruise in top not style the Aqua Luna has all the modern-day amenities including lovely cushioned seats on top deck to enjoy a drink while watching the laser show.
