Bought our return ferry ticket as part of our classic big bus tour package. Misunderstanding today (April 6, approximately 1pm) as we were only issued tickets one way but ticket collector was rude and arrogant to the point of offensive. We eventually found a big bus representative who issued us with both sets of tickets.

Service is ok, gets you from A to B. You feel a bit like cattle trying to all get on at once but there’s room for all.

Staff need a fast track course in good old fashioned customer service!

Easy way to get around Hong Kong island. Great to see the skyline from the water. We exited near the click tower and it was a short walk to the Peninsula.

Worth venturing above ground rather than take the subway between HK island and Kowloon. Ticket machine takes notes / coins and gives you a token that you use to enter the pier. Not a long journey but great to be able to see the shoreline on both sides.

So cheap to use this service. Efficient - you do not have to wait long for them to come. Great views of the harbour when crossing. A long walk to the centre on the HK side but not on the Kowloon side.

A good experience sailing across Victoria Harbour whereby the waters is more rowdy & rough than the milder currents at Penang’s Strait of Malacca. A spectacular panoramic view of the skylines on both sides, Mainland & Island. The fare is reasonably cheap.
