Star Ferry (China) Reviews
Newest Review: ... droves of people, class, concrete and neon - the energy of which is intoxicating and tangible. The Star Ferry is therefore the perfect means of getting away from it all - for 6 or 7 minutes - in the middle of this vast metropolis. It runs several routes from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, but surely the most popular is from the old ferry pier at the south tip of Tsim Sha Tsui, over to Central ferry pier on HK Island.
