The Star Ferry is a great public transportation when you want to get over from Hong Kong to Kowloon, or the other way around, Kowloon –> Hong Kong. It only costs 2 or 2,80 Hong Kong Dollar(one way) which is the amount of 2,30 SEK or 36 Cents(USD). It´s nice because it´s a pretty view and goes fast and you get off right where the harbour walk starts for Avenue Of Stars 🙂
The only “pretty” boat we saw during our stay in Hong Kong was this one. I kept looking for the really pretty ones with red sails but I´m pretty sure they didn´t have any of these out during this season..

One evening we missed the last ferry and found out we could take the subway(which goes under the water to the other island) too! It´s a little bit more expensive(7 Hong Kong Dollar or so..) and you do need to walk around a lot underground to actually get out of there.
But good if you want to stay out later then 11 PM when the ferry stops running 🙂
