Limited land space and a rising population, has resulted in Hong Kong's iconic skyline. While it is a spectacle during the day, it is simply breathtaking, once it is all lit up at night. What started off as a simple harbour port city, has now become a global hub. And while the cityscape of this magnificent city is always changing, evolving, getting better, the old landmarks still remain. It is a metropolis that has held on to its heritage, and you can experience it no matter where you are in the city.

The Duk Ling ride is one example of the city's living history. The Duk Ling, meaning Clever Duck, is an authentic Chinese structure built over 50 years ago. After more than 25 years of seafaring, the boat was restored to its original majesty. Now it is the last authentic Chinese junk in Hong Kong, and serves as a tour boat, giving you remarkable views of the Hong Kong skyline.

If you want panoramic views of the city, you can book a cruise on the Duk Ling. The ride can last between 2 to 4 hours, and the price of admission tickets includes refreshments. The junk can also be hired for private cruises, allowing for a more personalised experience. With seating for over 30 people, you can opt for this if you are a part of a big group. With recent changes in marriage registry laws, you can even get married on the boat.

Tickets are given on a first come first serve basis, and you are required to purchase your ticket in advance. You can climb aboard at two different piers- the Kowloon Public Pier or Central Pier 9 on Hong Kong Island. Timings and dates vary, making it a must to double check when you buy your ticket. Try booking a ride during the evening, which is the ideal way to enjoy the sunset and the vivid colours it paints the sky.

Choosing a Hong Kong hotel is easy decision to make as there are a number of options available. If you are looking for a luxury hotel in Hong Kong, you cannot go wrong by staying at the luxurious the Langham Hong Kong. Winner of TripAdvisors, Travellers Choice Award 2011, the hotel offers travellers the absolute best of accommodation.
