Very recommended transportation. Cheap and one good optional way to across between islands. I can see skyscrapers from the boat. At the harbour there are plenty stores selling foods and little stuffs.

Unless you need one embankment to the other, metro is probably your friend but that would miss one of the authentic experiences of HK. Obviously avoid rush hour!

Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

If i arrive at Star Ferry Terminal Central Pier 7 (Kowloon side) how long will it take me to be on board and sail? Does waiting lines here are long? how about if at 2:30pm?

Response from Glynn W | Reviewed this property |
The ferries are every 8 minutes to Central and 12 minutes to Wan Chai. There will be little if no waiting line. If you miss the ferry, the maximum you will be waiting is 8-12 mins.
