Star Ferry - Review

If you are in Hong Kong, a trip on the Star Ferry isn’t to be missed. This iconic transport, founded by the Indian Parsee opium businessman Dorabjee Naraojee Mithaiwala, has been ferrying people for over a hundred years between the Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula and carries over 20 million passengers a year. The Star Ferry is a favorite among the local people because it is affordable, convenient and quick. Ferries run very frequently, and it takes only about 10 minutes to travel across the harbor. In the evening, enjoy the gentle breeze from the sea and the world-famous sights of Victoria Harbor, with a cup of coffee.

Better yet catch the ferry at 8:00 pm, when it will pause in the middle of its short journey to let you shutter off at the nightly symphony of lights show.

Star Ferry, Hong Kong Reviews

  • My love, there are many little things happened in our life. Not necessary all good, but it won’t do much impacts to us anyway. Keep talking with me on the bus, over the phone, text or VC. I will be always on your side and my arms are always reserved only for you. I love you ❤️92❤️

  • A pretty good ferry pier with all basic facilities. Various options to sit back and relax.

  • 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

  • Wonderful way to experience the night view of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.

  • 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.
