Star Ferry: cheap mode of transportation

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by jae_em on August 17, 2010

Riding the Star Ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island was a great and affordable way to view the famous HK skyline.

Fares vary depending on which deck you ride on and the day of the week. Compared to the MTR, you can save a minimum of 6.5% on travel between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui. This definitely adds up if you are often traveling between both islands.

Because the engine is located in the lower deck, the smell can be a little bit overwhelming.

The only drawback with the Star Ferry was the location of the Central pier. Walking through the maze at Central can be long and exhausting.
