The ferry runs from Kowloon pier to central pier on Hong Kong island. Ferries run every few minutes and an adult fare is only about HK$2.2. Ride takes about 10 minutes. Worth doing in day and at night for the lights. A must trip.

Took this ferry after a trade fair visit and it was so wonderful. We took pictures and stood by the edge like excited 3yr olds. Worth the try and it's quick and very cheap.

Charming and giving an old world charm, these ferries play between the WanChai and Kawloon areas. Inexpensive, fast and enjoyable way of travel when in Hongkong. Ensure you have local currency coins or $10 or $20 to ensure you can get tickets for the ferry....More

These ferries are old, but very charming. They take you to the islands or just across the bay from HK Island to Kowloon. Inexpensive and more pleasant than the underground. Try them by day and by night.

Ticket price was less than a dollar. Trip length was very short, however you get a nice panoramic view from the centre of the harbour

abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
