The Star Ferry Of Hong Kong

The Star Ferry has traversed the harbor between Kowloon and Hong Kong for well over a hundred years. The owner took the name from Tennyson’s CROSSING THE BAR, “Sunset and evening star, and one clear call for me!”

Two weeks I stood on the decks of the Celestial Star, the oldest ship in the fleet.

William Holden met Nancy Kwan on the Radiant Star in the 1960 film THE WORLD OF SUZIE WONG.

The ferry was exiled from service eleven years later.

I can’t get Suzie Wong out of my head.

I known other Suzie.

Actually only one.

She loved opium.

The crossing was quick and cheap.

245 US cents.

Always Asia
