Hong Kong Wan Chai Star Ferry

Hong Kong Star Ferry also offers slower paced harbour tours that can be purchased at the Central and TST terminals.  It’s an excellent way of seeing Hong Kong from Victoria Harbour at a relaxed pace or or for those with up to 300 people they can rent one as a charter.  Additional information available on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Ferry

The Star Ferry has been an active legend of Hong Kong waters from around the time Kowloon was ceded to the British in 1860 even though it was officially created in 1888.  It was the first mass transport to move the people between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.  Today we have alternatives in the form of tunnels for road transport and MTR that moves the masses.  The Star Ferry slows down the pace of travel and reconnects one with the city itself.  The Star Ferry is not only an asset for those that enjoy the casual pace of trip from either Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) to either Central, the most popular choice, or Wan Chai.  The TST terminal is the oldest of the three terminals and has the old world feel.  The Central pier was moved in 2006 for reclamation and creation of the new waterfront promenade.  The Wan Chai Pier was more recently moved in 2014 to also make room for the expansion of the waterfront promenade that is above new underpass and MTR relief line. Star Ferry used to operate between Hung Hom on the Kowloon side to Central and Wan Chai but due to decreasing ridership especially after Central terminal relocation that route was eliminated.  The old Hung Hom Star Ferry is still there and has been renovated in recent years but sitting vacant.  All the active ferries where constructed in Hong Kong & Whampoa Shipyard that no longer exists.  Whampoa is now a business and residential area.
