Every trip to Hong Kong I will always try and use the star ferry to cross Victoria harbour on a sunny day. The views of both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon side from the ferry are spectacular and a must for any visitor to this amazing city.

A must do when in Hong Kong- for the price, which is basically pittance you can cross over to Hong Kong island. Service is frequent and reliable.

If you visit Hong Kong a trip on the Star ferry is a must. The best time is probably around 8 pm when all of the buildings light up and there is a laser display. Unbelievably cheap at around 20p each way .

Always a delight to board such an economic yet 'worth a million dollar-view' ride. The Avenue of Stars is only a leisure stroll from Tsim Sha Tsui Pier.

Always a great way to get across the Harbour and see the buildings on the Hong Kong Island side as well as Kowloon - I take the top deck for the view.
