No need to take the full ride

No need to take the full trip... just use it to cross the river... you can even use the octopus which costs virtually nothing...

We love the Star Ferry, without doubt the best views of the Hong Kong skyline, for the cost it has to be one of the best value trips in the world for the scenery, take the trip both on a day and at night.

This is the cheapest and best tourist attraction in HK, if you want it to last longer take the Wanchai ferry. Then walk thru the alleyways, it's delightful!!!

Incredibly cheap, and if you time it right, you can catch the Symphony of Lights from the boat - an amazing sight to see from the water!

Best way to see the skyscrape. Quick and easy yo use. Toilets provided, which the MTR does not have.

This is worth doing once, but it's not as efficient as the MTR. We took it to the Central side from Kowloon to see Victoria's Peak, and actually had to trek a bit to get to a bus stop that took us to Victoria's Peak from the Ferry. On the way home we took MTR and it was much faster... More

Quaint way to cross the fragrant harbour. Ferries run frequently 24 hours a day but at night is best as you get a real sense of all the city lights.

Fantastic, original ferry services between Kowloond and Hong Kong; incredibly frequent service, and costs next to nothing. If you have an Octopus just touch and go as you would on the MTR or Tram services.

Great way to see the length and breadth of the waterline of Kowloon & Hong Kong. Good value for money and you get the local feel by travelling this way. You can get some awesome photos from on here.
