We crossed the harbour in the ferry both ways. This is a great way to see the skyline of Hong Kong. It's fast and you never have to wait long. We loved it.

The trip was done on a whim. $2.50 one way was very cheap. The trip only took about 10 minutes. Would do this again.

Cheap as chips, easy to buy tickets, this old ferry is a must. Great views, especially at night. Nostalgic but still very much an important part of the infrastructure.

Most reasonable way to cross the harbor to Kowloon. Runs frequently. And costs less that one Usa dollar.

if in Hong Kong and you need to go to the Island or Kowloon this is a ride to experience. The Star Ferry has been going for many years and is much more fun than the MTR

This is a must do when you visit Hong Kong. It is a great way to see the Hong Kong skyline at night and during the day. It is also very cheap.

For the price of HK$2 it's an inexpensive scenic short ride. Very pleasant and fun. A great way of seeing the skyline from both directions.

For less then USD $1 you can have a ride in Victoria Harbor! The boats are charming and you can get an unparalleled view of Hong Kong. Don't miss it!
