"Star Ferry" Star Ferry Tip by arv1

Star Ferry, Hong Kong: 82 reviews and 125 photos

Star Ferry is really cheap transportation from kowloon to honk kong island and vice versa. The view from the ferry is really nice too, the waves can be a bit rough sometimes, so maybe if you get sea sick really quickly, you shouldn't go on it, BUT th journey only lasts 8-9 minutes...

Though the ferries run at regular intervals, you should try and be there before the set departure time as I recommend you get a seat near the window, otherwise the journey would be tedious!

This is probably the cheapest type of transport there is...i think it cost HK$1.25, which is a really good price for something that is not exaclty a tourist site in itself, but is treated like one!!
