Kowloon to Hong Kong ferry best way to travel easy, and access to other ferry terminals gets you away from MTR

It’s a ferry. Gets you across the harbor in about 10 minutes instead of a 30+ minute drive. Big, holds lots of people.

Because Hong Kong is an island, getting to and from the mainland can be time consuming. The ferries are a great way to get around. They run on time and efficiently.

You will have to disembark and re-join. I did not travel at the time you ask about but it is a smooth operation and so I think you will be able to flow with the commuters.

There sure is a taxistop. Taxis are cheap compared to european prices. You’ll probably pay 5 to 8 dollar/euro for your taxi.
