Ask any visitor or Hong Kong local and they'll tell you - the best way to see the city is by boat. Hop on the traditional wooden Chinese junk boat Aqua Luna and hug the coast as you set off from Central or Tsim Sha Tsui pier on a 90-minute journey southwest to Stanley. A favourite with visitors and locals alike, Stanley is home to the historic and vibrant market, amazing waterfront restaurants and cafes, the colonial Murray House, former home of the Maritime Museum and the magnificent Tin Hau temple.

Relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views from the bustling heart of the city to the lush tropical coastline of Hong Kong's southside and across the South China Sea to the rugged outlying islands that dot the coastline.

Upon arriving at Stanley, stroll around the waterfront neighbourhood and explore the market for two hours before hopping back onboard for the relaxing journey back to the city.
