#1 Ferry tour

Title: A Ride on Our Harbour 「順維港而行」

Date & Time: 10 March 2023, 16:30 – 19:00 HK time

Location: Central Ferry Pier 中環碼頭

Language: Cantonese

Dr. Sampson Wong 黃宇軒, the author of “Hong Kong Walking Studies” and urban researcher

About the ferry tour:


WMA香港學會將聯合主辦「順維港而行」。是次海上之旅將提供一個最直接且第一身的角度,讓參加者在渡輪上感受維港與城市的流動、認識維港被忽略的部分。從陸地移師海上,《香港散步學》作者、城市研究者黃宇軒 Sampson Wong 亦將分享如何以水域的角度考察城市,以及填海與城市扣連的各種記憶。


The exhibition ‘Hitch a Ride on Water’ takes the definition of an island as an entry point, and examines how the water establishes the trade activities and thus the developments of an island. How Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour came to define the city since its opening as a port city? What is the significance of the Victoria Harbour to this city and the people here?

Co-organised by WMA and the Society for Hong Kong Studies, the ferry tour ‘A Ride on Our Harbour’ aims to provide the most direct and first-hand experience to feel the pulse of the City and to understand the often neglected parts of the Harbour. ‘Walking’ from the streets to the sea, the author of “Hong Kong Walking Studies” and urban researcher Sampson Wong will also share his ways to observe the city from the perspective of water, and the various collective associated with different phases of reclamations.

The ferry will depart from the Central Pier, sail to the west of Victoria Harbour, cross the Stonecutters’ Bridge and bypass Tsing Yi for the return journey, which lasts for 2 hours. We look forward to exploring this city by hitching a ride on water with you.
