Wow....what a way to really get a taste of the harbour and city from the water. Very affordable, runs on a regular bases right into the night which is a plus for those night shots of the city. Timing it, it takes about 10-15mins to cross over to Hong Kong Island which is ample for the camera. Easy to get... More

Taking the Star Ferry across Hong Kong harbor is a great alternative to the subway system. You get great views of the harbor and it's very efficient to get across. If I brought my family to Hong Kong this is certainly something I would make sure and do with my children!

The ferry is quick, very cheap and the easiest way to cross the bay. Tickets are purchased from a vending machine (it does give change) and non rush hour crossing fee was less than 1 US Dollar and rush hour was 25 US Cents. The ferry runs every few minutes so even in rush hour there is not a long... More

We travelled in Star ferry on our way back to Central from Tsim Sha Tsui.. The ride was so pleasant and the buildings' view from the ferry added more beauty to the journey.. A ride that is definitely needed for leisure.. :-)

A must do to go back in time on board and enjoy the view on the Hong Kong skyline... There are 2 levels: above which is a bit more expensive and below. You need to choose before you board the boat. Best way to get from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui.

We went on this on 29th May 2014 and as such it was free as it was travel free day, so I can't comment on token system. However we loved our trips from Hong Kong Island during daylight and back from Kowloon at dusk showing the harbour in all it's splendour at both times of the day. The ships are... More

The Star Ferry has been around over 100 years, and it's something every visitor to Hong Kong should experience more than once. It was hot and muggy when I was there, and I greatly appreciated that every ferry I took had a section that was air conditioned. The standard ferry ride is only 5 - 10 minutes; I also took... More

We took the ferry ride from Tsim Cha Tsui to Hong Kong and absolutely loved it. The ferry is huge and ancient and takes you across the harbour in a few minutes. Do this for the vintage value if nothing else.
