This os a really interesting museum right by the Star Ferry. It has a cheap entrance fee and charts thousands of years of the maritime history of Hong Kong. The models are fascinating and the information is in English too. Well worth a visit.

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
