This is a great way to go back to the mainland. This ferry has been operating for many years and is still in great shape. If you are traveling as a couple and purchasing ferry tokens, purchase both tokens in one transaction and save $1.

The star ferry harks back to days of empire and its incongruous with today's Hong Kong and that's exactly why I like it. It chugs across the harbour, one goes to Wan Chai the other goes to Central both from the Kowloon side. You have to be there

This is a must if in Hong Kong. It is one of the cheapest rides from Hong Kong to Kowloon or vice versa. Beautiful Scenic views on "antique" benches. Even being a local it's a must for me to take the starferry to enjoy the views of this beautiful city!

Its very convenient, although its crowded because its cheaper than the metro. Its faster though and provides a nice view of the Hong Kong skyline.

Travel to other islands for day trips. Quite clean, plenty of seating and regular services. Use your Octopus card for fare payment.
