At Sea to Hongkong, 16 July 1893

In the bad mood caused by the forced cancellation of the visit of Siam, we left Singapore in the morning. Gorgeous palms on its coast waved us good-bye. Passing the South-eastern tip of the Malacca peninsula and the light beacon of Horsburgh, we drove through the Strait of Singapore into the open sea steering towards Hongkong.

During the departure and in the Strait of Singapore there was rainy weather but the sky cleared up in the afternoon. The changes between sunshine and rain created impressive color effects and reflections on the horizon.

At the onset of darkness we sighted Aur Island and soon afterwards individual islands of the Anambas group.

During the night, the wind turned to South-east but remained light. The sea was calm.


  • Location: At Sea near the Anambas group
  • ANNO – on 16.07.1893 in Austria’s newspapers.
  • The k.u.k. Hof-Burgtheater is closed for summer until 15 September. The k.u.k. Hof-Operntheater is closed from 1 June to 19 July.
