Average experience.. It's good for a one time visit, but nothing exceptional. Takes about 20 minutes to undertake the journey.

Easy to cross over to Kowloon from Hong Kong Island. Purchase a token from the little machine or use your Octopus card at the card reader. You get great views of the skylines on both sides.

Convenient way to Hongkong Island if you need to go for business to Hongkong Island. Not as crowded as the other public transportation systems. Make sure to wear something warm during winter season.

By far the best way to get across the water. Lots of people spotting and the views are always good. Recommended

For next to bothing, you can get amazing virews of the Hong Kong skyline any time of the day and most of the night. The MTR is very efficient, but this is the way to cross from HK Island to Kowloon!

It's nice to use it once, it's a little boat that take you from one side to the other, nothing exceptional but it's relaxing
