Star Ferry - a ferry between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula

Victoria Bay, which separates the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island, can be crossed on underground or on the Star Ferry. The latter option is great for getting new impressions of a small sea walk, which is daytime, that night.

Star Ferry Ferry

The star ferry swims pretty fast, sowe can not say that this is a slow way to move to the other side. Rather, the opposite is true. If you need to get exactly from one embankment to another, then you can do it by ferry much faster than by subway. And do not forget about emotions. In the evening it will be difficult to break away from the lights of skyscrapers on both sides of the bay. And if you will be shipped at the time of the laser show, then it is even more interesting.

On the mainland (Kowloon Peninsula), ferriesstart from about one place. There are two berths not far from each other, from one you will float to the pier near the Central metro station, from the second to the Wan Chai metro. Everything is signed, so it will not be difficult to figure out which ferry, where to sail.

Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier is a pier on Kowloon, located near the Avenue of Stars and Tsim Sha Tsui subway station.
Central Star Ferry Pier No. 7 is a pier on Hong Kong Island near the Central and Hong Kong metro stations.
Wan Chai Star Ferry Pier - a pier on the island of Hong Kong near the station Wan Chai.

P.S. On the last trip, we constantly cruised back and forth to Star Ferry, really faster than the subway worked out.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
