The Star Ferry is an inexpensive way to cross to/from Kowllon and Hong Kong. The ferries fare is around $1.00 US for two.

The Star Ferry service provides an ideal scenic view of Victoria Harbour and an easy connection between Central on Hong Kong side and Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon side. You can also view the awesome Hong Kong Skyline and Symphony of Lights if you get on the ferry at dawn. It's a popular must-do activity for tourists though I... More

We went on the ferry to get to Central from Tsim Sha Tsui and enjoyed the fresh breeze and the view of the city from the water. Easy to use and a great experience.

While not as fast as the MTR the ferry is a nice way to cross the harbor and gives great views of the skyline. Tickets are cheap and something every tourist should try at least once. Short ride and within the closed harbor area so not hard ride for those who get sea sick.

It's a fast ferry ride, with ferries arriving every 10 minutes and taking 5 minutes to cross to the other side. The only downside is the smell of fuel/exhaust upon docking, but, it's a boat: what do you expect? It's crazy cheap at US$0.20 a ticket and offers killer views of both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, especially at night.

Adult price for the ferry is HKD 3.4 (weekend, cheaper on weekdays) using an Octopus card for the upper deck. Elders with Octopus card can board the ferry for free. Best way to see the bustling yet clean harbour while seeing both the Hong Kong and Kowloon sides of the country. Ride it both day and night!

So nice and easy way to travel between Kowloon and Hongkong and very cheap. You see the skyline of both sides and feal the smell from the water. The ferrys go very often, you never wait more than a few minutes.

One of the coolest places in Hong Kong to hang out with friends/families. I have a lot of memories of this place.
