The star ferry was a really quick and cheap way for us to get from TST in Kowloon to Hong Kong Island. Can use the Octopus card or there is a machine to get a token with change

Tiny ticket booth at Tsim Sha Tsui Pier operated by one person who can only manage to sell a ticket every 5-10 minutes. We waited in line for 20 minutes and only three people in front of us. Terrible service considering its a major tourism...More

A good change of pace to take this towards TST - where you can walk to Harbour City (a huge mall) - enjoy the slow ferry ride and watch the night view along the harbour

Probably the best way to cross the harbour. Can get a view of the famous skyline of HK island or Kowloon.

There are ticket counters located on the piers where you can easily purchase the tickets. Alternately, I suggest you use the Octopus card, which is a stored value card that you can buy at any MTR station. You can store money... More

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.
