All public transportation in Hong Kong is well thought of and reliable. We took the ferry for traveling between the two islands. Take the night ferry as you won't be disappointed.

How easy was that! No crowds. An easy to use ticket machine. And a ferry arriving just as we had our tokens to travel. A short trip but the view from the ferry gives you a good look at Hong Kong. Try it!

You will have to disembark and re-join. I did not travel at the time you ask about but it is a smooth operation and so I think you will be able to flow with the commuters.

There sure is a taxistop. Taxis are cheap compared to european prices. You’ll probably pay 5 to 8 dollar/euro for your taxi.
