Star Ferry

Kowloon Point, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong


The Starr Ferry boats have been carrying passengers across Victoria Harbour, from Hong Kong to Kowloon Island, for more than 100 years! Apart from being a convenient transportation form, it also opens up a great view of the Victoria Harbour, and the amazing Hong Kong Skyline at night! The cross-Harbour tours have become popular attractions for both visitors and locals of Hong Kong.
The Ferry boats carry over 70,000 passengers per day. The Star Ferry's boat tickets are sold on a first come first served basis. You can purchase tickets either online at the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier and the Central Pier 7 prior to departure. The tickets cost 100 HKD (~12USD) per adult; please bear in mind that they accept only Hong Kong Dollar payments!

    Extremely cheap and great value for money. Pay the extra for the top deck as it offers the best views ($2.7 HKD, yes I did write that correctly, $2.7 HKD!!!). Best travelled after 8pm when you get the best views of the light show from the skyscrapers on the land

    If you're a tourist and you have two hours to spare, you need to take this vintage ferry. It's not glamorous, but it's safe and efficient and it's a fun way to traverse from the Kowloon region of Hong Kong over to Hong Kong Island. Absolutely great and iconic views of Hong Kong as you cross Victoria Harbor.

    If you want to get between HK Island and Kowloon, the star ferry is the only way to go. It's fast and it's cheap.

    Nice ferry and very historical. The journey is a little bit short but you could do several times. You must do it during sunset time, amazing views.

    Cheapest and most enjoyable way to cross Victoria Harbour. TIP: Try to take the boat between Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai: the boat turns and the view is way better and longer!

    An icon of Hong Kong! One of the cheapest attractions in Hong Kong and one that will have you falling for the city lights. The ferries are all at least 50 years old and a trip back to a simpler time of wood benches and open decks with the sea breeze to keep you cool. Whether top deck or lower make sure to grab a seat by the railing for the best views.

    Make sure to take the ferry for a cheap "harbor tour." Very inexpensive way to sail across and admire the harbor traffic.
