Two of Hong Kong’s ferry companies that provide cross-harbour services will give passengers free rides on July 1 to celebrate HKSAR Establishment Day. The iconic Star Ferry will allow anyone who travels between Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai to board their vessels for free. Fortune Ferry will also distribute limited free tickets for its Central-Hung Hom and North Point-Kwun Tong-Kai Tak routes.

Anyone who wishes to board the Fortune Ferry should book their tickets in person at specific piers, on a first-come-first-served basis. They need to register their phone numbers and can then collect two tickets per phone number. Passengers can pick up their tickets based on the following schedule:

In addition, passengers born on July 1 can also ride Fortune Ferry’s Central-Hung Hom, North Point-Kwun Tong-Kai Tak, and Tuen Mun-Tai O routes for free. Bring documents with proof of your date of birth to claim your free tickets.
