United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: This curious African Queen derivation stars Curt Jurgens as Mark Conrad, an Austrian exile and Orson Welles as blustery ferry-boat captain Cecil Hart. Banned from both HongKong and Macao, Conrad is forced to spend his life on Hart's ferry, shuttling endlessly between the two countries and irritating everyone with whom he comes in contact. Conrad redeems himself when he rescues Hart and the passengers during a raging storm. Poor Welles is reduced to Gale Gordon-like bombast throughout the proceedings, while leading lady Sylvia Sims has practically no purpose in the film whatsoever. Ferry to Hong Kong was released in America through 20th Century-Fox along with several other like-vintage Rank Organisation films. ...Ferry to Hong Kong

Charlie Chaplin's last film is the cinematic equivalent of Willie Mays staying too long in baseball--a sad farewell from someone who has clearly lost his touch. Marlon Brando (who famously did not get along with Chaplin and initiated, with this film, his curious habit of undermining his directors' best intentions) plays an American millionaire leaving Hong Kong to assume an ambassadorship. He discovers Sophia Loren--playing a daughter of Russian aristocrats and a former gangster moll--concealed in his closet onboard the outbound ship, hoping to gain passage to the States. Brando, looking none too pleased, agrees to help her, with not terribly comic or romantic results. Chaplin's one modestly clever touch is to have the camera rock gently and slowly back and forth, ostensibly emulating the movement of the luxury liner. The humour falls flat, Brando and Loren have no chemistry, and the story isn't terribly engaging. The former Little Tramp appears, mercifully briefly, as a seasick steward who opens and closes a door, swooning in between. Appropriately enough, in silence. --David Kronke

Advantages: great way to travel and see the views! cheap Disadvantages: none
...This summer we travelled to Australia. I really didn?t relish the long flight and when the travel agent suggested a stop over in Hong Kong for little extra cost I jumped at the idea. We had 2 nights and 3 days in Hong Kong and so choosing what to see was difficult within the timeframe. One of the best ways to experience the iconic skyline is to travel on the Star ferry across Victoria harbour...
Advantages: Fantastic night life. Luxury hotels Great food Disadvantages: Pollution Traffic jams. Frenetic and tiring
...Over the last 20 years or so I have visited Hong Kong five times and believe it or not I still cannot make up my mind
whether it is like entering paradise or hell. Equally I have to admit I hate the place during the day when it seems so grey and the people are just like like ants scampering around whilst loving it at night when it seems to me to be visually one of the most colourful...

Review of Hong Kong
Advantages: Great Views Disadvantages: Uncomfortable seats
...When on our trip to Hong Kong one of the thing on our to do list was a trip to Victoria peak to take in the marvellous view and ride on the famous peak tram.
The tram has been in existence since 1888 when it was officially opened by the Governor and in these days the wooden tram was powered by coal fired boilers. It was not till 1926 that it was changed to electricity...
