We were told by trip advisor and friends to make sure to catch the star ferry. I honestly did not see the attraction. It just like telling some one in Syndney yo make sure they get the Manley ferry!

Nice service, frequent trips, an "old style" (and chilly) way to cross from Kowloon and HK Island. Very cool !

Not as fast as the MTR but a must do at least once to experience a piece of history. The ferries to Lantau, Lamma Island and others are a great way to see the sights in a very relaxing manner

Great Value to view the new landscape while crossing the harbour. New recreation area was developed in the old Timor area with a tall Hong Kong Wheel.

We took the Star Ferry for a tour of Victoria Harbour. Lasted an hour for a reasonable price. Very nice way to get tour bearings and enjoy a little respite from the heat. Receive ticket for free beverage and food if you like at the start of the tour which was an added bonus.

The ferry is inexpensive, convenient, and provides a great layout of the city. It is a comfortable ride. Make sure to bring your camera.

Great way to cross the river. It's cheap. Provides an amazing view. It's huge so you will always get a place to sit. Make sure to take the ferry at least once.

The cheapest way to get across the harbour and such fun. The ferries are quaint but travel on the upper deck to take advantage of the views.

It's a must-do thing for the visitor, whether the $2 trip from Central to Kowloon (oddly $2.50 to return) or the $71 one-hour harbour trip. Both are good value. Fabulous views of the skylines on both sides open up to the traveller and it's especially good to sit on the right-hand side coming back from Kowloon as the sun is... More
