What a way to cross Victoria Harbour. Old fashioned boats that just ooze charm and give you some of the best views that you can have. At around $5HK for two adults (50p) what’s not to like. Fantastic and an absolute must do 😊😊👍

Great way to get a 360 degree view of Hong Kong. Very inexpensive also. Sit back and relax and enjoy the view.

It's definitely worth taking the ferry at least once during your visit to Hong Kong. It's quite pleasant on a warm summer day and the view is nice.

The ferry is the cheapest way to enjoy a ride on the harbour and enjoy awesome views of both sides of the city. You can do to and fro a couple of times till you are extremely satisfied with the views!

You get wonderful views of both sides of Hong Kong harbor and leads to nice walking areas on both sides. The ferry is old tradition ferry and slowly goes across the harbor.

We had used the Star Ferry many times during our stay. Senior is free and adult's ticket is very cheap. The ferry runs often and which is a great way to travel between a certain locations.

We loved this . it is an excellent and cheap way to take a cruise on the water. Free for seniors. Its a short 8 minutes but easy to get back on . Highly recommend it.

Ok, the MTR may get you across the water more quickly, but the Star Ferry is a great experience, and at just 27p for a single ticket, a real steal. Downstairs if you can.

You will have to disembark and re-join. I did not travel at the time you ask about but it is a smooth operation and so I think you will be able to flow with the commuters.

There sure is a taxistop. Taxis are cheap compared to european prices. You’ll probably pay 5 to 8 dollar/euro for your taxi.
