Looking back toward HK island from the Star Ferry. The Ferry is wonderful. It's a commuter taxi costing between $1.70 and $2.25 HK Dollars, depending on whether you want to sit on the upper deck or the lower deck.

The upper and lower decks used to be to separate the Brits. from the Chinese, but now they really serve to separate the tourists from the locals. ;^)
