The “Star” Ferry as a favourable view from TripAdvisor’s top reviewer 

Hong Kong, March 1, 2015 …... The “Star” Ferry Company, Limited (The “Star” Ferry) announced today that the South China Morning Post published an article titled “HK-based man is TripAdvisor Top Reviewer” which highlighted a positive comment on the Star ferry ride made by Mr. Brad Reynolds, 37, the Hong Kong based reviewer.

The “Star” Ferry sent Mr Brad Reynolds an email on what his comments on the Star ferry ride are. Reynolds made the following replies:

A ride on the Star Ferry is a quintessential part of the Hong Kong experience for visitors; it is an important link to the city's history and heritage and affords all who ride - excellent views of Victoria Harbour, Victoria Peak and world class Hong Kong Skyline. The Star Ferry is something that can be easily enjoyed by everyone and captures so much of what I love about Hong Kong. This is why it is my personal favorite thing to do in the city and the first thing I recommend to Tripadvisor members when asked what to do and see in Hong Kong.

TripAdvisor celebrating its 15th anniversary is a pioneer of user-generated content recording more than 200 million reviews that provides travelers with unbiased attractions reviews, photos and travel advice. In 2011, the Star ferry ride was rated first runner-up in the "Top 10 Must-See Destinations in Hong Kong" among 302 attractions in Hong Kong poll by the travellers of the world's largest travel website TripAdvisor.com ("TripAdvisor").

"I am delighted to know that the Star ferry ride is Mr Brad Reynolds’ personal favorite thing to do in the city and the first thing he recommends to Tripadvisor members. As one of Hong Kong's major tourist icons, The "Star" Ferry shall continue to provide reliable, enjoyable and economical cross-harbour services to local commuters, visitors and tourists alike," said Mr. Johnny Leung, General Manager of The "Star" Ferry.
