Double Ducks by Florentijn Hofman

Jenny Leung

Time Out says

Hong Kong's favourite rubber duck is back after 10 long years, and this time, it has a new buddy! A collaborative project by creative brand AllRightsReserved and Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, Double Ducks by Florentijn Hofman sees a duo of 18-metres-tall inflatable rubber ducks floating on Hong Kong waters, essentially turning Victoria Harbour into a giant bathtub! The pair is currently stationed near Tamar Park and the Central and Western District Promenade (Central Section) and will be there to greet the public until June 18.

For an extra special Father's Day, one of the giant rubber ducks will be making a trip to Tsim Sha Tsui, swinging by the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter and East Coast Park Precinct, before making its way by landmarks on the Kowloon shoreline, such as the Cultural Centre, Avenue of Stars, and K11 Musea at around 1pm. On the day, Hot Dog Link (G/F, Promenade, K11 Musea) will also be giving away free limited-edition Italian gelato pineapple buns from 12.30pm to 3.30pm for visitors to cool off from the summer heat while watching the Rubber Duck. 

To add some quacking good fun to our everyday life, a special series of 'Double Ducks with Hong Kong Signature Icons' is launched around town, featuring 24 adorable images each carrying unique local characteristics. The Double Ducks have also taken over 18 different MTR stations (six more are making their surprise appearances in different MTR stations on June 12) such as Central, Causeway Bay, Tsi Sha Tsui, Choi Hung, and Admiralty, where Exit E has been transformed into a limited-time 'Double Ducks Exit' with rows of cute ducky footprints, wrappings, motifs, and a giant duck face facade on the exterior round-shaped ceiling window facing the harbourfront.

And just to top things off, you can catch the Double Ducks tram making its way around Hong Kong Island throughout the month; 'take flight' with the duckies at Ngong Ping 360's bubble-bath-themed cable cars or see the Flying Rubber Duck cable car; hop on the rubber duck-themed Star Ferry going from Wan Chai to Tsim Sha Tsui; or get your hands on exclusive Double Ducks collectibles – think wooden sculptures, plush toy, mahjong sets, T-shirts, and more – at the DDT Store.

Take a look at these adorable duckies in the video below!
