Stories From The Road

The Star Ferry

TSIM SHA TSUI, Hong Kong, SAR, China – Hong Kong is a great city and it is easy to get around. Between the MTR system and the numerous cabs and buses, there is never a shortage of public transportation. Another, more classical type of transportation that exists is the Star Ferry. The Star Ferry is a historical landmark of Hong Kong. It ferries people between Tsim Sha Tsui and Central or between Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai. The boat is a double-decker ferry and it runs all day, departing either side every ten minutes. The price of a ticket is 2.5 HKD (approximately $0.31 USD). The entire ride takes about five minutes. This is definitely a trip that is worth taking, even though it is very short.
