Star Ferry

Since 1888, this oval, double-decker ferry has transported the residents of Hong Kong between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Star Ferries does not only provide an insight into the day-to-day life of Hong Kong but also offers the cheapest and best views of the Victoria Harbour. There are four different trips, but the most popular is between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui.

Do & See

Temples, museums, amusement parks and lookout points – Hong Kong has a great variety of sights to explore. Highlights include the Man Mo Temple, Victoria Peak, the Big Buddha and the night-time market in Temple Street, but be sure to find some time to explore some of the city's fantastic museums, as well: the former colonial police station of Tai Kwun, for example, reopened recently as a museum and cultural venue, and features curious spots like a full-blown bar inside a refurnished old prison.
