Has to be done. We caught the ferry from Kowloon one evening just to say we had been on the Star Ferry over to Hong Kong Island. While we were there we had a ride on the giant ferris wheel in the harbour area and got great views of all the buildings lit up

Just like the trams (ding dings), the Star Ferry has a rich history taking passengers to and from Hong Kong Island (Central / Wanchai) to Kowloon. Have travel on this 100s of times and I guess I take this for granted. A cheap way to get across to Kowloon and back. At night, you really can't beat the beautiful night... More

Such an institution , and very very cheap, a short journey and you are across in Kowloon. We ate lunch at the star ferry restaurant which was very nice. A buffet with lots of choice.

For a few cents you can cross between Hong Kong island and Kowloon and get a million dollar view. We took this trip, both day and night, several times while we were there for 9 days. We rode on both the upper and lower decks. The photos you can get from the Star Ferry are wonderful.

I liked how convenient and easy it is to use. You just pay the really low price and you hop on the boat and it takes you across the water. It's like they've been doing this for many year! Oh wait...they have! It's a great service...and a must do in Hong Kong.

The Star Ferry never disappoints! It is fantastic value for money and the views are amazing. Despite it being rather foggy, we were still able to enjoy this trip across Victoria Harbour. We used our Octopus Cards which meant no queuing for tickets. Very simple and quick. The seats can be reversed too, so if you like facing the direction... More

Just loved it. Travelling across the Victoria harbour from Hong Kong island to Kowloon or other way. A must do. Don't miss it. Better than even the peak tram. The rolling boat, the licking waves, the Hong Kong sky line, the cruise ships docked up on Kowloon side...... I wax eloquent. And it is dirt cheap. The seniors travel free.... More

Star ferries are brilliant ,takes about 5 minutes to cross the harbour,,I could ride on them all day.If you want to see the Symphony of Lights at its best then catch a ferry just before 8.00 pm or during the next 15 minutes and get a seat next to the water. They are very cheap in fact with a senior... More
