Quick and cheap way to get to Hong Kong Island, and great views of the Harbour . Payment can be either by using an Octopus card, or buying a token at the quay.

If you're over 65 (need to check age) take passport or photo ID and you travel on the ferry for FREE, although the cost was pennies

We loved using the star ferry. Amazing value for money. We used our octopus cards for the trips and went over at different times of the day and evening. A must in Hong Kong.

It is really just transportation between central and TST, but I love it. It is one of my favorite spots in Hong Kong, especially at night. It is quick and easy. It is also pretty cheap to do.

Used the star ferry almost everyday.
It’s cost effective , efficient and gives you an opportunity to take in the sights & sounds & take some pictures of Hong Kong from the water.
