“Loved the ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

When we first arrived in HK, we just got on a ferry and rode back and forth just for the experience! Eventually we worked out where we wanted to go and enjoyed several ferry rides from this pier.

“Nice view with cheap ticket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

It's all about Hong Kong you can see in the Victoria Harbour. Imagine that the small fish village turn to big city, all stories started from the Star Ferry, Cheap ferry ticket, nice nightview. Busy but peaceful when you go for a ride in the ship.

“Kickin' it Old School”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

For those that want to experience Hong Kong pre 1980s when there was no MTR this is the transportation must-do when crossing the harbour. Still is very cheap ($3-4 HKD) and will be a great 10 min ride across the harbour from Tsim sha tsui to either Wan Chai or Central pier.

Go at dusk for the best views.
