I was visiting Hongkong only for 4days 3 nights(a very short trip), but this is a MUST DO on your list. I took a Star Ferry Harbor Tour at about 1755, which was perfect for me, I still got to see the sunset toward the end of the harbor tour. Great way to see both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon... More

Went over to Kowloon on star ferry at night, got some great pictures of the skyline all lit up. This is a must if you go to Hong Kong

Cheap, regular ferry service across the harbour. A good tourist attraction as well as a cheap and easy way to travel around Hong Kong. Good to take the ferry in the day and at night to see the lights!

It's over in a few minutes, but the view is great, you can see all around the harbour and the skylines of Kowloon and Hong Kong island. I like to go as the sun is setting. This is something of an initiation to Hong Kong, and shouldn't be missed, just as getting the tram is a great and cheap way... More

Even if you don't need to use the Star Ferry to go from HK to Kowloon! I think they said something like 60,000 people crossings per day ... Ok, you can also use MTR or the tunnels. But this is much nicer!

Do not hesitate to spend 15 minutes on the transfer by ferry from Kowloon to Central at night. Magnificent 3d view of the illuminated city. Very affordable, for about €0.50 Each time in Hong Kong I enjoy it, this time with the whole family and even my eldest son (18 years old) loved it! Just coming back from a shopping... More

Several people have told us that if we get to Hong Kong we "must" take the Star Ferry. I get it as a means of transport between Hong Kong and Kowloon, but other than that, it was just o.k. The staff at the pier were rude/unhelpful--especially to tourists. We weren't sure about how/where to get a ticket, and the signage... More

You probably won't find a better experience for less Money than going for a star Ferry tour. Crossing the harbour from TST to HKI take approx 15mins, the Ferry leaves every 10mins and it costs approx 0,50€ (50 euro Cents) to go back&forth. Make sure you dont miss this very nice opportunity to get amazing views on both kowloon and... More
