Only the boats were brightly lit, and the boat girls in Tang suit and trousers rowed to transport tourists to and from the seafood boat, bar boat and song boat. While enjoying seafood on board, tourists can also enjoy the night view of the harbor and the scenery of the sampan at the same time. Therefore, it is an ideal arrangement for tourists to visit the typhoon shelter at night. In addition, Causeway Bay has many excellent Chinese and Western restaurants.
