My husband and I have not been on the star ferry for years and on this visit we decided to take the star ferry from Central to Tsim sha Tsui. It is a bit of walk from IFC to the ferry terminal. there are most tourist on the ferry and it was not busy at all. The ferry are kept clean and we enjoy the sea breeze and have a nice view of both Hong Kong and Kowloon side. We took the ferry back at night and the the night lights were amazing. It is a good way to see the night lights without being in the crowded area at both piers. We totally enjoy the ride.

Nice, quite cheap and beautiful....also fast.

All those adjective for a too live experience. Nothing that will change your life but need to do if in HK

Once upon a time, the Star Ferry was the only way to travel between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, then the car tunnels came, and then the MTR. If you're taking the Star Ferry, you're doing it for nostalgia or because you're a tourist. It's a great way to see the skyline of both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

The bonus is that the Kowloon ferry terminal is at Tsim Sha Tsui and the Hong Kong Island terminal is at Central near the IFC, the world's largest shopping mall. So tons to do very close by the terminals. Als each ferry terminal is close to an MTR stop.

Classic public ferry travel. Easy safe convenient and THE VIEW of the entire City is worth the walk to the end of the piers
