We could ride the ferries across Victoria Harbour all day long, as the Harbour scenery is constantly changing. Amazing that this service has been running for over 130 years at amazingly low fares. Although probably time to update the engines to electric or the like to reduce the fumes.

Use your octopus card and take a trip on the ferry. It is a great way to travel, see the busy harbour on water level and just sit back and relax. The price is cheap and well worth the while.

The star ferry costs around 30 pence for a trip across the harbour which makes it the best value trip I’ve ever been on! Gives you great sites across both sides of Hong Kong!

It's a simple boatride with an amazing view. Very cheap and easy access. (Recommend octopus card, bur you kan buy a ticket with coins).

Even though it only lasts 10 minutes Star Ferry was one of the highlights of our Hong Kong visit. For a very cheap price you get the best of Victoria Bay. We first get the ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong island and we liked it so much, we took the ride back even though our hotel is on Hong Kong Island. It is also the best way to see the traditional Chinese junks...Get your snack and join the ride...
