Star Ferry

A beloved icon of Hong Kong

Far more than just a way of getting from A to B, the Star Ferry between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island is a tourist attraction in itself.

These green and white boats have been around since 1888, offering sweeping panoramas of both islands' waterfronts and skylines from their decks. It only takes five minutes but this trip through one of the world's busiest harbours is one you will never forget. Travel with the locals during rush hour, have your camera at the ready for hundreds of photos, and if you can, try and ride around 8pm to catch the Symphony of Lights show that illuminates the surrounding city skyline.
