Great value and a wonderful experience. Easy to use and so cheap. We chose the upper floor deck tokens and it was only HK$2.70 per person. You can also use your octopus card too.

If you land by sea in HK you are on the Kowloon side of HK. To get to HK central you need to take the Star Ferry which runs about every 5 minutes. Very cheap and convenient, used by 1000's of locals every day!

Just use the octopus card to tap in and out. Choose either upper or lower deck, aircon or normal breeze, sit back and enjoy the ride.

It doesn't last long or cost much but its worth doing this crossing on Victoria Harbour. If the heat becomes unbearable its usually cooler down by the waterfront.

We decided to take ferry for our first crossing to the Hong Kong Island. To our surprise, the fare is cheap and the ferry is very clean, and very good opportunity to take photos of the harbour. It is very good.

These ferries are a fast and cheap way to cross from HK island to Kowloon and vice versa. The ride is very short and there is nothing to be expected in terms of ambience, just gets the job done quickly. It offers very good views...More

We took the ferry from Wan Chai pier to Tsim She Tsui in the evening. Its very simple and cheap using Octopus card (a MUST for HK). Views are great of both sides as you cross - recommended!

busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

The ferries are every 8 minutes to Central and 12 minutes to Wan Chai. There will be little if no waiting line. If you miss the ferry, the maximum you will be waiting is 8-12 mins.
