Hong Kong Travel Dictionary - Simple facts for everybody
The Star Ferry carries passengers across the world famous Victoria Harbour between the Kowloon peninsula and Hong Kong Island. It offers an unique cross-harbour experience at a reasonable price. There were four Star Ferry piers but they are either shifting or slowly disappearing. The Tsim Sha Tsui and Central piers offer the most frequent ferry services.
There are different types of services that Star Ferry offers: the public transport service that is available for everybody (including tourists) at a very cheap price; and the Victory Harbour 'tour' service that is comparatively much much much more expensive. The very nature of the two services are very different: the former takes you from point A to B, where the latter is a sight seeing tour. We recommend the budget option as is offers enough taste at a very reasonable price. If you need more, simply take the ferry across the harbour multiple times! Ten HK Dollars offers 4 journey on the Star Ferry, where usually 1 ride would be sufficient for most.
