We use the Star Ferry to get from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central and back more than we use the Subway, mostly for the lovely views. Using the Ferry is inexpensive and easy.

If you are first time in HK it’s a must. Starr Ferry is connecting HK Island and Kowloon. The ride is approximately 5-10 min with waiting no more than half an hour. Very cheap and good adventure for children.

The ferry takes you from Tsim Tsa Tsui (Kowloon) to Central (Hong Kong island) whilst allowing you to take in the beautiful view of Victoria Harbour. It costs $2.70 HKD (around 20p!) so a must do for visitors of HK.

This is soooooo cheap, pence! A great short journey but you watch the skyline appear and it’s magnificent! There is a viewing platform the other side and it’s great to look back at the majestic place!

It requires you to focus on the sight seeing aspect for full 1hour, the same experience you can get by 1/50th of the price in normal ferry

We bought single tickets. They only cost 2.7 Hong Kong dollars which is less than 50 US cents. There is a machine that takes cash on the pier. It is very easy and simple. Ticket machine gives change.
