Sailing on the Star Ferry

Long before the steamboat was invented, people crossed the harbour between the island of Hong Kong and Kowloon by sampan. A time-consuming and arduous trip. However, once the Star Ferry came into operation, the journey was reduced to only 8 minutes. The Star Ferry now offers 12 boats and the crossing offers great views of the impressive Hong Kong skyline.

Although today there are many tunnels and bridges that connect the island of Hong Kong with mainland Kowloon, the Star Ferry is still a great – and cheap – way to cross the harbour. About 70,000 people a day, almost 26 million people a year, still travel by the Star Ferry. The ferry has 2 regular routes and a special harbour tour that calls at all stops.
