HONG KONG - A six-story-high rubber duck is making a big splash in Hong Kong.

Crowds watched the inflatable duck being pulled by tugboat across Victoria Harbor in front of Hong Kong's signature skyscraper skyline.

Tourist Zhang Wenjin from Shanghai says it's a big surprise and her daughter liked it "because kids like cute stuff."

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created the bright yellow duck and it was built of PVC in New Zealand.

He was on hand as the duck arrived and said it later had to be deflated because high winds and waves created a "big challenge."

The duck has been transported around the world since 2007, bringing a message of peace and harmony. It will be on display until June.
