Sea trading has always been an important industry in Hong Kong, and seamen play a key role in operating thousands of sea trades. However, with most of their time spent on the sea, the life of seamen seems to be mysterious in the general impression. How did seaman become a popular occupation among Hong Kong villagers? What were the difficulties faced by the early Hong Kong seamen? What are the actual duties of Hong Kong seamen nowadays? Find out the answers in this event!
Our Mega Board Game ‘All Aboard!’ is a family-friendly choice for adults and children to get to know more about the life of Hong Kong seamen in an entertaining way. Participants of the game can operate their own cargo vessels to enter the Hong Kong Harbour, experiencing the daily work of the seamen. Together with the small display that tells the history of Hong Kong seamen, visitors can understand the significance of the occupation as well as their hard work in both past and present. Participants of the Mega Board Game will be given the souvenir of a set of the mini board game.
