About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Victoria Harbour Cruise Tour: 1 of 1000 Places To See Before You Die

    After all the Philippine historical tours, Disneyland, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, and free Hong Kong city tour, one of the most recognizable images of Hong Kong can be experienced through Star Ferry's Harbour Tour.

    the last authentic Chinese junk still sailing in Victoria Harbour: the Duk Ling moored at the Central Pier

    Central pier and International Finance Center, the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong towering over the magnificent skyline

    hong kong clock tower

    the spaceage-looking Hong Kong Cultural Center and the Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, both landmarks of the modern city.

    The Clock Tower is what's only left of the Kowloon station of the Kowloon-Canton railway in Tsim Sha Tsui.

    Nearby are Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Space Museum, and the Avenue of Stars

    the magnificent skyline of Central, Hong Kong Island. The edifice, with unique climbing lines resembling growing bamboo shoots symbolizing livelihood and prosperity, is the Bank of China Tower: the 3rd highest building there.

    Crossing the Victoria Harbour is one of the 50 places of a lifetime according to National Geographic and also one of the 1000 places to see before you die.

    Tutubi has only been to seven of the 1000 places...993 places more to visit! :)

    Round Trip Ticket costs HK$45 during the day, HK$95 at night and HK$135 during A Symphony of Lights multimedia show featuring the buildings on the harbour front in a spectacular light sequence.

    You may get your tickets at the following outlets:

    Central Star Ferry Pier, Wan Chai Star Ferry Pier, Hung Hom Star Ferry Pier, Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier

    Wow, very impressive. I haven't been to Hongkong and probably will never get to see it. At least I got to see it here and I'm quite impressed with the sights.

    Grabe, ang galing ng skyline.

    I remember I went to Hongkong when I was a kid. I don't know if I rode the ferry though.

    Is this list from the book? I'm quite interested to find out what the thousand places are. :)

    pieterbie, one of the most impressinve that is

    photo cache, it's such a nice city near the beach and nature. live it. love it :)

    dodong, yeah. one of those must-see in HK

    mari, at least you've been there virtually thru my blog :)

    cheh, wish to come back and visit other places, too.

    sidney, no, there're still 999 other places to visit :P

    tin-tin, isa ka pa. 999 pa :)

    toe, 1000 places is really from the book although i find trivializing travel to just like a shopping list :(

    I like the architecture of the buildings, especially that of the convention centre.

    Very nice picures ! Isn't it that the HKG harbor is slowly shrinking as the govt has reclaimed a lot of area to build new buildings ?

    Tutubi, where did you stay to keep within your backpacker's budget?
