If you've got time in your schedule, you've just got to take the star ferry across Hong Kong harbour - Hong Kong Island to Kowloon or vice versa.This Hong Kong institution is iconic of Hong Kong's colonial past and deep heritage. The fare can paid by your octopus card and is just pennies. The view is fantastic and leaves from TST terminal and goes straight into the Central business district. The journey takes around 15 minutes so slower than other forms of travel but there is nothing that can beat it for value and experience.

Forget harbour cruises and the ferry to Lamma, hop in a cab to Sai Kung, HK's seaside getaway. Enjoy seafood on the waterfront or ideally hire a sedate sanpan/racy speedboat to ferry you out along the bay, past the country park (HK isn't all urban jungle!) to the beautiful islands off the east coast. Sail back at sunset, so romantic !
Sai Kung. Hong Kong New Territories. East coast. If you don't want to take a taxi, nearest MTR is Hang Hau/Choi Hung plus bus 101/1a) wander along Sai Kung waterfront and the sanpan hawkers will find you!
