Larger and calmer Hong Kong Victoria Harbor under Covid-19?
Under Covid-19 pandemic, the beautiful Victoria Harbor of Hong Kong looks bigger and calmer.
The reasons are the disappearance of giant cruise ships and suspension of border crossing high speed ferry services, like Turbojet between Hong Kog and Macau.
Frank the tour guide shows you the video and photos of Victoria Harbor under Covid-19 in this post.
Actually we should cherish hopes and the situation is improving.
Mega cruise World Dream, which had a few Covid-19 patients in February, has resumed seacation service in Singapore.
Macau holds the new Grand Prix motor race from 19 – 22 Nov 2020.
Frank hopes cruisers can return to have his easy Hong Kong private shore excursion by private car and take Turbojet high speed ferry to have the Macau private tour.
When cruise terminals and ferry terminals are closed, Cruises moor at sea and Turbojet ferries moor at pier
On 5 Feb 2020, Hong Kong SAR announced the closure of the two cruise terminals in Hong Kong, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and Ocean Terminal, until further notice under the imminent Covid-19 pandemic.
After the departure of the giant cruise World Dream, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal becomes empty up till today.
The Star Cruise, which often berths at the Ocean Terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui, also leaves the terminal and moors at the sea to save rental cost.
The disappearance of big cruises in Hong Kong makes Victoria Harbor seems larger.
The border crossing high speed ferry service between Hong Kong and Macau and Hong Kong and Mainland Chinese cities were also suspended in early February 2020.
The high speed boats, like the Turbojet, now are mooring at the piers and at the dockyards.
Without the Turbojet ferries shuttle back and forth, Victoria Harbor seems less wavy.
Although situation seems dim, actually the mage cruise World Dream has resumed seacation service in Singapore and Macau holds the 2020 Grand Prix this weekend.
Frank waits for the return of cruisers to take high speed Turbojet to go to Macau
Frank the tour guide believes everything will get back to normal finally.
Frank just waits for the return of cruisers to Hong Kong.
Frank can serve cruisers during the Hong Kong private shore excursion by private car.
Frank can also go to Macau by Turbojet ferry with clients to have the Macau private tour.
Frank hopes he can serve clients in 2021!
