“You've got to get on it once”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

It just an old ferry boat. But, there's something about crossing the stunning Victoria Harbor that way. Do it once. You'll be glad you did.

“Fun and relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is my favourite way of getting from HK island to Kowloon and vice versa. You can go under the harbour on the MTR, but you miss the scenic views.

From Kowloon side, you can go either to Central pier of Wan Chai pier.
If you can time it be on the ferry when the laser & light show is on. Best views as you can see both sides of the harbour.

Very cheap and you just use your Octopus card.

“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Do it through the day and at night. So cheap and you get great views of both sides of the harbour. The lights in the evening are spectacular.
