Star Ferry (again)

I know I’ve posted about the Star Ferry before – but I am such a great fan of these little white and green boats that have been crossing the Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong for so many years.

They are just beautiful to watch, how they glide across the water. You can easily just hop on one, and ride from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui and take another one from there to Wan Chai. If I had enough time to do so, I would prefer to travel to my office in Wan Chai this way, but unfortunately this could take a little too long, with me having to change ferries.

The Star Ferry is such an iconic boat. It has been in Hong Kong for so many years – and it is still so affordable.

For just 3 HKD on the weekend (and cheaper during the week) you can ride in the top class from one side to another.

It just takes a couple of minutes, but it is the best way to cross the harbour.

I could do this every day – and I have done it many times already. What I have not yet done, but is on my list of things to do, are the is a harbour tour with Star Ferry. They last 60 minutes and cost 60 HKD per adult for a day trip. You can board in Tsim Sha Tsui at 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. From Wan Chai, it’s 2.40pm and 3.40pm and from Central 2.20pm, 3.20pm, 4.20pm and 5.20pm.

There are also night tours – these cost 120 HKD per adult. They leve at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm from Tsim Sha Tsui. If you get on the 7.20pm from Central, you can watch the Symphony of Lights light and laser show. There is also a special Symphony of Lights Harbour Cruise, which runs for 2 hours, costs 160HKD and leaves from Tsim Sha Tsui. More info here: http://www.starferry.com.hk/harbourtour
