The star ferry is a great cheap trip you can take when you visit HK. It doesn't cost much, for those who suffer from motion sickness this can be too rocky for you.

The Star Ferry takes you from TST to central in about 15 minutes. On a calm, clear night it is a perfect place to sit and take a break from the big city.

A leisurely way to cross HK Harbour. Great views of the skyline and of other harbour traffic You can pay for the ride by either purchasing a token or by using your Octopus card (also used on the MTR)

This was such an easy form of transport, use it. We bought an octupus card which is convenient to use, so I do recommend this.

buy a travel card at the airport and use for all transport and basic shopping. The ferries get you to lots of places both on the tourist side and quite side
