16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A motorized tourist Hong Kong Junk slices through the water set against modern cruise ships.

The Hong Kong practically is an icon of the Hong Kong tourism scene. This portrayal of the cultural and historical Hong Kong is still being capitalized on albeit a motorized limited Junk. This one ferries foreign tourists between the two islands. Set against the modern ships of the island, this photo captures the stark contrast between old and new. It also shows how much cultural and historical heritage is a drawing factor in tourism. Will Hong Kong be able to hold on to this image?
