Hong Kong & Yaumati Ferry Ticket Stub (1995 or 1996)

Hong Kong & Yaumati Ferry Ticket Stub

This Hong Kong & Yaumati Ferry ticket stub is from the summer of either 1995 or 1996, when my dad took us to Lantau Island.

If you watch Hong Kong movies from the 80s and 90s, any that show scenes of the harbor will likely include a vessel from HYF, and maybe even one of the distinctive vehicular ones. Like the Star Ferry, HYF was one of the icons of Victoria Harbor, but unlike the Star Ferry, it served more of a functional purpose than a tourist one. When Hong Kong ceased to require its function any longer, the ferry service ended.

As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this museum post.
