The star ferry is a quick trip between Hong Kong island and Kowloon. There are big shopping centres on either side and places to eat. The boats are big and sturdy and a popular thing to do.

The one and only Star ferry - timeless. Not changed in the 30 years between my visits to HK. Oyster card works on the ferry and makes it very simple to use

We went on the sightseeing excursion which gives fantastic views of the harbour and skyline. It costs more in the evening when the light show is on.

You can’t visit Hong Kong without a visit on the star ferry. Reasonably priced at $2.70 and enjoyable whatever the weather

We bought single tickets. They only cost 2.7 Hong Kong dollars which is less than 50 US cents. There is a machine that takes cash on the pier. It is very easy and simple. Ticket machine gives change.
