Fair. Fun. Easy.

Still a fun and enjoyable ride across the harbor. Nice and cool. The fun part are the reversible seats on the ferry.

Travelling on the Star Ferry between Hong Kong and Kowloon is easy, cheap and a very enjoyable way to move across the Harbour. Tokens for tickets can be bought at the pier and ferries travel very frequently. Recommend this for any visitor to Hong Kong.

You must do this in HK for the best water views. Relatively inexpensive. Just get on and you don't even have to get off at the other side. I did it morning and night...worth every cent.

A cheap and fast way to get across the harbour without traffic jam. Thought it is more beautiful to catch the city skyline at night, a must try for all visitors.

Very economical and a great activity for kids. I recommend the upper deck for great photography, lower deck if you want to save a little as well as watch the captains.

Best way of getting from Central to Kowloon (TST area) - not the fastest, but the most scenic. Ride costs HK$ 2.50 (for upper deck, 50 cents less for lower) and takes around 10 minutes. Great view of both sides of the harbour on the way.

Had some spare time so took a trip on the star ferry. It's very very cheap and if clear then very nice views during the trip. Highly recommended just to see all the buildings from a different angle and a pleasant experience compared to the trains in rush hour!

Thank flashsam7267
