“One of the best over-water rides!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

Plan your trip with a ferry ride at night and one in the daytime, Though you see the same buildings, the different views are just breath-taking!

If you take the night ride, time it so that your ferry moves out at around the time of the Symphony of Lights. Wonderful light show on display!

Don't bother to find a seat. Stand so you can take photos and enjoy the views.

A bit bumpy but well worth the trip! Around 10 minutes long.

“Lovely way to get across from the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

Tried the tunnel and spent over an hour either way stuck in traffic, horrendous, the ferry was quick, relaxing and worth it for the views

“Worth a trip to view from the harbour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

Easy & reasonably priced so why not take a trip. Plenty of photo opportunities when out on the water.

“Star Ferry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

Carefree way across the Kowloon Bay. Unfortunately wooden seats,for those with tender bums luckily the trip is not long. And of course the crossing is worthwhile, with so much to see in Hong Kong.

“Want to get HK Island? Take the Ferry!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

The star Ferry is a great way to go to Hong Kong Island. It's cheap, easy and very clean. If you time your ride, you can even catch the lightshow while you are on the boat.
Also take note, the boat itself doesn't turn. The captain and the seats switch positions. The boat itself is bi-directional!
