“just once”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

you just need to do it once, but it's a nice thing to do in HK. the MTR is much easier but of course a lot less romantic.

“Quick, efficient, cheap!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is such a great way to experience Hong Kong. We rod the star ferry back and forth a few times to get to places, and it was always fun with beautiful views!

“A must experience”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Easy to get I recommend to use the Octopus card though. Nice views, you don´t need to get a seat for a few minutes trip. Take pictures, get the fresh air in you face and experience this beautiful harbor, so live and vibrating as decades ago.
Also, so inexpensive...
Not sure if handicapped accesible.

“Nostalgic trip in time”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The Star Ferry hasn't changed in decades. Still the same ride to cross from Hong Kong to Kowloon. You can get some great photos of either side from the ferry.
