You will not find many attractions as cheap as this one, 2 hk dollars per adult well worth the 5 minute ride across the harbour from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon, star ferry pier 7. So much to do and see once over there, walk along the promenade, see the boats going by then jump on the ferry for the... More

Nice views, cool old-school boats, easy, almost free and definitely the best way to get from Kowloon to Hong Kong island.

The Star Ferry is such a historic and iconic part of Hong Kong life, (since it started running a service across Victoria Harbour in 1880), it is an absolute MUST for any visitor to this magnificent city. At just HK$2.50 to cross (about GB£0.20) it is ultra cheap and probably the best short ferry crossing in the World... The whole... More

You can see the most spectacular views of Hong Kong by travelling a 1 hour ride on this Star Ferry! 160$ trip is worth spend for night views!

Taking the Star Ferry across from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island makes you feel like you are a local as it is so reasonably priced and so obviously has commuters using it for work. It is a very quick trip across but had amazing views of both shores and offers a little breeze in the incredible August heat.

The boats are a wonderful way to see the skyline of the city. We took one towards Hong Kong island. They are cheap at 2.5 HKD. On the Hong Kong side you connect to all the nice streets and attractions through a very long raised walkway.

Every visitor to Hong Kong should take the Star Ferry which plies the harbour between the island and Kowloon. It;s cheap,quick and easy to catch. Star ferry also offer longer harbour cruises which are great value for money, Tickets for all these can be bought at the office at the front of the Star Ferry Pier.

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!
