At the turn of the century, Hong Kong currency and Canton currency were both accepted as legal tender in Hong Kong. During the Japanese Occupation of Hong Kong, the competing Yaumati Ferry was allowed to continue, while the Japanese commandeered the Star Ferry for their own purposes.
It is a 1.4 kilometre funicular railway connecting the Central district of Hong Kong with the Peak.
The Lower Peak Tram terminus is located at Garden Road and the Upper Peak Tram Terminus is located inside the Peak Tower, 396 metres above sea level and 150 metres below the summit of Victoria Peak.
The Star Ferry operates on a franchise from the Government.
It was last renewed in March 1998, the year of its centenary.
