The Star Ferry is the best way to commute across the bay, and is inexpensive as well.  It makes daily trips, departing every five minutes between Tsim Sha Tsui (in Kowloon) and Edinburgh Place (on Hong Kong Island).  Another mode of transportation to be experienced is on the Peak Tram, which takes people up or down from Victoria Peak for a spectacular view.

The best way to get around is by using the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) which was completed in 1979.  A price comes with it being the cleanest and fastest mode of transportation, it is more expensive than the bus or the ferry.  It covers Hong Kong Island's Central District, Nathan Road and parts of Kowloon.

Along the North Shore of Hong Kong Island are 162 double-decker trams that travel from the easternmost part of the island to the westernmost part of island in about an hour and a half.  Taxis are yet another mode of transportation and are found on Hong Kong Island, New Territories and Lantau Island.  They hold up to five passengers and are metered as well as air-conditioned.  Although English is widely spoken in Hong Kong, it is recommended that English speaking visitors have their destination written in Chinese for their taxi driver.
