This is just the best way to get from Hong Kong to Kowloon .. after finding out it's a pain too get taxis from say your hotel in Hong Kong to Kowloon side not just for the taxi 4-5 person license limit but due to a lot of the taxi drivers will refuse to do rush hour or busy traffic... More

It reminds me of childhood when I used to live in HK. Price has gone up to $2.50 per head. Still inexpensive and great for tourists.

Star Ferry is one of the oldest transportation tools of Hong Kong but still attracting nowadays. Just a few dollars you can have a round trip at the Harbour. It is also another and cheapest way to cross the harbour.

One of the 'experiences' of Hong Kong. An excellent trip in the day-time, even better at night around 8:00p.m. when the light show is on, but expect lots of company.
