Newest Review: ... tokens from the machine. Hong Kong has a really efficient and inexpensive travel system and at just HK $2.20 (20p) for an adult single and HK $ 1.30 for a child (aged 3-12). Once you have purchased your tokens you will need to make your way through the turnstile. If you have purchased a child token an alarm will sound so the attendant can check it really is for a child! It really is all very ... more

This summer we travelled to Australia. I really didn't relish the long flight and when the travel agent suggested a stop over in Hong Kong for little extra cost I jumped at the idea. We had 2 nights and 3 days in Hong Kong and so choosing what to see was difficult within the timeframe. One of the best ways to experience the iconic skyline is to travel on the Star ferry across Victoria harbour. The Star ferry is listed by National Geographic as one of the top 50 places to experience in the world. The star ferry has been operating since 1880 and now has 9 ferries making the regular journey from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon. We had booked to stay on Hong Kong ... Read the complete review

This is a traditional means of transportation between Kowloon and Hong Kong. It does not cost much. It takes around 15 minute to get to the other side of the town.

I highly recommend this to tourists. The Tsim Sha Shui coastline is very pretty at night. One can get to see the fantanstic view just by riding this traditional ferry. I find it very relaxing, because it is not as crowded as mtr station, and can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the harbour. It is best during Christmas when all the ... Read the complete review
