If you're traveling to HK on holiday the Star Ferry is a "must-do" attraction. Very reasonably priced at just a little over $100HKD, the ferry boasts spectacular views of the skyline. My only mistake was going in the daytime, this is really something that should...More

Must try this mode of transportation in Hong Kong. Especially at night. Took us about 10 minutes to travel from Tsim Sha Shui to Wan Chai Pier.

Take the ferry. Costs you close to nothing. But this you need to do. Blend in with locals and tourists on the ferry. Do it at night, so you can see the city lights.

I think I was on the original Star Ferry. Old but serviceable. The most interesting way to cross Victoria Harbour.

It's a ferry so not much to say. You get excellent scenic view of Hong Kong harbour on the crossing. Would advise paying the extra few pence it costs for the upper deck (on the crossing to Kowloon this was about 0.5 HKD I think...More

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.
