...and not at all expensive. Yes, the MTR is faster, but there is just something nostalgic about the ferry. Romantic short journey also.

Great way to fill 60 minutes talking in the skyline in the sun. Free drink and snack with your ticket.

The star ferry pier is very popular with locals and tourists alike as the view day and night of Hong Kong Island can be spectacular.... there are buskers and tour reps but also there are plenty of buses and taxis to take you to other parts of Kowloon. The ferry is the main attraction to go across to the island... More

This is a must for any traveller to Hong Kong. Take the 9 minute ferry ride and you'll love the skyline views. Take the trip during the day and also again at night because the views are totally different. And it costs under 3 hks!!

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

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.
