Founded in 1888, The Star Ferry is second to none for a Victoria Harbour cruise. It carries over 70,000 passengers a day across the harbour which divides Hong Kong Island and Kowloon and is the largest harbour in China. This mode of crossing is inexpensive and more widely chosen than the railways and road tunnels, most likely due to the panoramic views and wonderful light affect from the skyscrapers at night.
