Why Everyone in Hong Kong Should Ride the Star Ferry!

ALL-TIME FAVORITE POST FROM 2011 RE-BLOGGED:

Most people who go to Hong Kong maximize their MTR pass by shuttling from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island through its efficient and superb train service. When I went there the second time around, I was tipped to ride the star ferry going to Hong Kong Island. And boy was I right with my decision. The view was spectacular and the cool breeze was so refreshing. I had a grand time walking around to all directions and effortlessly wait for a few minutes before the boat docks to Hong Kong’s financial district.

Next time you're in Hong Kong, better make sure you skip one ride to the MTR and head to the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier. It takes about 9 minutes of pure joy as you cruise.

TIP: Best time to ride the Star Ferry is early morning and late at night, avoiding the crowds while having the best uninterrupted view of the harbor. Enjoy!

@Pinay Travel Junkie Agree with you totally. And if possible, go with the dinner cruise to make the night even more romantic.

That's what I did too when I was in HK. When I boarded the MRT going to Kowloon, at sinabi sakin ng na meet kung Pinoy dun na nasa ilalim kami ng dagat bigla akung natakot at pinag pawisan, kaya nalaman ko din na pwede palang sumakay ng ferry at masaya pa...nag ferry nalang ako...

@Eric are you claustrophobic? May time nga na medyo ako din buti na lang di nasisira ang MTR trains nila. he he But yes, iba talaga pag ferry ka sumakay mas feel mo ang vibe ng Hong Kong!
