Even the boat is so old and cheap look, feeling great cross the harbour. Hope Hong Kong can re-make it to simple/ clean/ modern like airport express.

Took the ferry across the harbour instead of the MTR for a bit of difference. It was enjoyable, and more laid back the the MTR.

The Star Ferry is an efficient way to get from Kowloon to Hong Kong, but it's also a destination in and of itself. The boats have a nice patina of age on the wood and a general feeling of nostalgia.
