Number 6 bus to Stanley
The Number 6 bus terminates at Stanley, on the southern tip of Hong Kong Island, famed for its sprawling market. The journey from Central is a gem, winding over Hong Kong Island’s verdant hills, and sweeping past the curve of Repulse Bay and its colourful apartment blocks.
Citybus no 6 or 6X from Central Bus Station, Exchange Square.
The famous Peak Tram has been going strong since 1888. The steep 10-minute funicular ride seems to pass just inches away from the apartment blocks en route to the top of Victoria Peak, Hong Kong Island’s highest point.
Lower Terminal: Garden Road, Central.

Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui
Take a seat on the top deck of the Star Ferry between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui. If you leave at twilight, you’ll be rewarded with lofty towers lit up along Hong Kong’s skyline, as the sun quickly sinks. It’s a magical experience, and all for less than the price of a bus ride.
