Little thoughts:

This is my first time taking the ferry to Central Pier from Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, as I always took the train and f0r once I felt that is a great experience even though it was a short journey but a pleasant and awesome one.

They do provide night ferry tour with refreshments included and passengers are able to enjoy the multimedia laser show (A Symphony of Lights) on board, which I think was quite cool.
