Hustle down to the Star Ferry and take the short ten-minute trip across Victoria Harbour, either to the Kowloon or Central side. Gaze up at Hong Kong's majestic skyline, which is an erratic stretch of skyscrapers, hotels, and apartment blocks. The nighttime views, when Hong Kong glitters like a diamond, are dramatic. There are 3 Star Ferry Piers: Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier, Central Star Ferry Pier and Wan Chai Star Ferry Pier.
it is a good way to enjoy the wonderful screenary of the both side of the harbour. My husband love boat.. it is very interesting to have change to view different type of boat.. from small fishing boat to cargo ship.. from modern western boat to oriental boat.. wonderful.
I took the star ferry once and it was cool. I took it during the day, but it would have been cooler at night.
To go to Hongkong and not go on the star ferry is like going to New York and opting not to see the Statue of liberty.
The guide books list the Peak Tram as the best tourist attraction. They lie, because this is just statistical nonsense; tourists buy virtually all the tickets - except the commuter season tickets!
The Star Ferry is dirt cheap, and the number of tourists using it is unkown, because everyone buys the same sort of ticket. You get spectacular views of both sides of Victoria Harbour, and the opportunity to mix with and obseve the locals.
Unfortunately, it's continued existence is in jepody, due to land reclaimation schemes constricting the width of ther harbour and causing turbulence that interferes with the docking!
Only the trams give a better value for money ride, as the round trip takes about two hours and costs six dollars in total (3 x $2).
When going to the crown colony and hong kong island, its best to take the star ferry located at the soiuthern part of Kowloon Island, Tsim Tsa Tsui district.
Its much cheaper than taking the MTR line and less confusing as taking the green line bus.
Just be prepared to rough it up during late Sunday afternoons and rush hours as the ferry terminal tends to be packed. If you are suspect for motion sickness, the upper level is best for you albiet is more expensive. ivan
Nice cheap ride where you can take a rest & relax while traveling to you next destination in Hong Kong. The harbor takes on a different feel while traveling on the ferry and you feel like you belong a little bit...It's nothing fancy but has a real local feel.
