Star Ferry Pier 7
Look back as well as forward. It might not have the same drama and natural beauty as Sydney Harbour, but for $HK3, it's a great way to appreciate the scale of what has been created on Hong Kong Island. Impressive city views by day or night.
Forget the tourist board cliche of Chinese junks with sails crossing the water. The diesel ferries started to replace them 120 years ago and the rare survivors only emerge for film shoots.
Ferries leave Pier 7 for Tsim Sha Sui (the area at the southern end of the Kowloon peninsula) every few minutes from 6:30am to 11:30pm.
