A great way to cross the harbour and most affordable way to catch a 1st class view of the HK skyline at anytime of the day. Must do for visitors to the city!

For a couple of pounds, you take the ferry across the water and see the Hong Kong skyline. The views are great and for the money it’s a real bargain. A must do in Hong Kong.

I was told this was a top activity and it is just a boat that takes yo from A to B in some 8 minutes, and the views are not as good as the views from the bay.

Good service, cheap and comfortable. Second time I've been so that speaks volumes. It's historic and a nice sit down. Take a beer on the boat or eat your sandwiches.

You have to go on the Star Ferry when going to Hong Kong, simple as that. The ferry travels between Central and Kowloon - the island and the mainland, and back. It takes about 5 minutes so it's very quick, but it has amazing views...More

The ride is very cheap and very short. You can see a nice view of both sides of the shore. Not a must attraction but a useful one, you can use a public transportation.

Crossing between Kowloon and Hong Kong island with Star Ferry is a must in Hong Kong. Use your Octopus card and enjoy the ride

I would say put 100HkD to start with. You can always top up in the MTR machines or convenice store. If there is anything left by the end of the 3days you can easily finish the remaining by getting snacks in supermarket... More

Yes, it seemed easily accessible to the ferry by wheelchair. But on the other hand, I did not see anyone in a wheelcahiar using buses and subway in Hong Kong.
