So cheap to use this service. Efficient - you do not have to wait long for them to come. Great views of the harbour when crossing. A long walk to the centre on the HK side but not on the Kowloon side.

A good experience sailing across Victoria Harbour whereby the waters is more rowdy & rough than the milder currents at Penang’s Strait of Malacca. A spectacular panoramic view of the skylines on both sides, Mainland & Island. The fare is reasonably cheap.

We used the tourist Star ferry to see the skyline of Hong Kong. We did the round trip from Central. Boat was clean, and spacious, and relatively cheap. Would highly recommend

Each time we visit, we include a Star Ferry journey between Kowloon and Hong Kong. This time we a return journey from Kowloon Star Ferry Terminal to Wan Chai Ferry Terminal at night. Although it was quite busy, we still managed to find a seat each.

I suggest purchasing the Octopus Cards when visiting Hong Kong, as the card can be used for payment on Star Ferries and Hong Kong buses, as well as the MRT and the Airport Express. If you purchase the Airport Express Return Ticket with the three-day unlimited travel cards, these cannot be used on Star Ferries and some of the buses.

Costs less than HKD3 per person, lasts about 10 min. Worth taking at night or during the day for scenic views of Hong Kong Island
