Start your tour viewing in Statue Square, which gains its name from the multiple statues in the area honoring different dignitaries. Head to the Law Courts to admire grand colonial architecture and its locally mined stone, and then visit the unique Central and Mid-Level escalators, a long series of escalators and moving walkways connected by bridges.

  • Take the Start ferry from the Kowloon side and you end up here. People everywhere. This is the financial district with walkways across the streets and lots of stores and restaurants. It is a joy just ...  more »
  • The central point of Hong Kong, where the traffic is convenient, four to eight, surrounded by high-rise building, shopping center, the hall, the evening to come, light up the middle of the ring so beautiful, you can go to the pier, sit on the Ferris wheel, high angle appreciation of the beautiful scenery.

  • It is the business district of Hong Kong. It is located on the island and is characterized by its modern skyscrapers where multinational. It's worth a stroll to see the same dimension, you'll also find some unsuitable for any Pocket cars.

  • Busy pier with lovely little farmer's market on the Sunday we arrived there aboard the historic STAR FERRY from Kowloon. Bustling...filled with people. The market had colorful produce and there was one table with lovely handmade cloth pouches and bags...one of a kind. Nice couple selling them for very reasonable prices. I bought several as gifts.
  • One of the best public transport in Hong Kong to travel with, no matter you are going to the Kowloon peninsula or the islands, and to enjoy the view of Vitoria harbour.
  • This is the place to go to for all the ferry rides to outlying islands off mainland. Regular timing, easy for rides. Accepts octopus pass too! All to easy.
  • Lovely place to sit and spend a quiet evening with your family. Also the place where you get to board the Junk boats or other ferries to take a cruise or watch the symphony of lights show. The Ferris wheel was out of order when we went.
  • This is the pier where you catch the historic Sttarr Ferry to cross Victoria Harbor! In this case "historic" should be translated to old and run down. Keep your hands on your wallet - especially after dark!
