The ferries are getting tired .

They are crowded .

They smell .

You feel as if you have been dunked in a barrel of boogers.

If I could paint sanitizer on my teeth after the trip I would.

Many say romantic..... maybe 40 years ago but these days that my friends would be a stretch.

I always recommend to take the Star Ferry if you want to travel from Kowloon to Central. So much better than being in the busy MTR, just for few minutes you can breathe the fresh air, enjoy the skyline and enjoy the a nice break!

We took the old ferries a few times, crossing between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. It's very cheap to do so HK$2.5 for adults (about 30 US cents) and well worth it.
The views are good for both sides of Hong Kong, the ferries seem to be constantly running and the journey takes a few minutes.

My husband and I have not been on the star ferry for years and on this visit we decided to take the star ferry from Central to Tsim sha Tsui. It is a bit of walk from IFC to the ferry terminal. there are most tourist on the ferry and it was not busy at all. The ferry are kept clean and we enjoy the sea breeze and have a nice view of both Hong Kong and Kowloon side. We took the ferry back at night and the the night lights were amazing. It is a good way to see the night lights without being in the crowded area at both piers. We totally enjoy the ride.
