“the best deal in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The famous Hong Kong Harbour is one of the most beautiful in the world. but the way to see the famous skyline is to take the star ferry! For 3 HKD, one gets to ride this enjoyable ferry, and there are 2 routes - TST to Wanchai, and TST to Central. Best time is around 8pm - there is also a laser show for 15 / 20 minutes - can't beat that for a bargain deal!

“Wow Wow Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

After 22 years of living in Hong Kong, everytime I watch the back drop of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui, I'm still very pround of being a tiny part of the city.

“Two of The Best Hour Spend In Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

After you check-in Airport Express airline counter, walk a few minute to the Central Pier and board the ferry to East Tsim Sha Tsui,, will take you to Kowloon side, while on this less than ten minutes ride, you will see both the sky'scrapper of Hong Kong and Kowloon , after you leave the ferry on your right is Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, the best spot to take your picture Hong Kong as your back ground, Hong Kong Conventional & Exhibition Centre, International Financial Centre are landmark of Hong Kong, make sure you included both or wait a little until a ferry come into frame, don't forget included yourselves in the pictures too, Avenue of Star is here with Bruce Lee's statue, if you have time to spare, walk to hotel Peninsula for an afternoon tea to round up your perfect best two hour spend in Hong Kong, then take the ferry return to Central and board your train to the air port, hope you enjoy your Hong Kong visit and go home with some good memory.
