Not only is the classic method of crossing the harbour between HK and Kowloon but the service is cheap and the views are fabulous. No trip to HK is complete without a trip on a ferry.

The Star Ferry runs like a well-oiled machine, efficient and with ease. Loading/unloading done in a timely safe manner. The views in the harbor are great and its a few minutes to gather yourself together ready for what's to come once you reach your destination.

There are ticket counters located on the piers where you can easily purchase the tickets. Alternately, I suggest you use the Octopus card, which is a stored value card that you can buy at any MTR station. You can store money... More
