An absolute must when visiting Hong Kong. You get a great view of both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island . Worth paying the extra few cents to go on the upper deck. A must do when in Hong Kong

As only a mode of transport to get off of central, this is cool. View of skyline is amazing. As entertainment or anything else, I wouldn’t classify it!

It's not that long, but it isn't expensive, and it gives a different perspective of Hong Kong. Of itself, it's not so incredible but for convenience, price and ease it's a nice thing to do.

The short ferry ride across the harbour is best done at night so you can appreciate the beautiful Hong Kong skyline. It's cheap and a short ride, but worth doing.

Definitely worth it for first timers, one of the coolest ways to commute. The novelty does wear off quickly after the first trip. And if you take it as part of everyday commute... sorry that the MTR or self driving is probably more comfortable.

While in Hong Kong this is a must to do. It's easy & a cheap way to travel from Kowloon and see the harbour. If you purchase the Hop on hop off bus tour you can go across for free. The harbour tour is also...More

As a means of transport between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, it can't be beaten. Frequent, cheap, reliable. Pleasant staff.

For the tourist travelling from Kowloon to the island this has got to be the best way to travel. I think it was about the equivalent of 40p....!

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
