  • Flower of historical recognition of Hong Kong which is immersed in a park on the shores of the sea that is worth walking. If you go to a fair to this next Convention Center, must give you a getaway to this sector more tourism.

  • The water view here is amazing. The Golden Bauhinia? Not so much. It is mostly swarmed with tourists wondering why they went to it to see it.
  • A pretty place to view the harbour and to jump on a city tour bus. Nice public restroom. Lots of benches to sit on.
  • It's really ugly and underwhelming, not much historical value or significance. Don't bother there isn't much to do around the area either, although the view from the West side of the convention centre of Hong Kong's skyline is good.
  • Opposite location with Symphony of The Stars at Tsim Sha Tsui. Worth the trip.
  • Not too much to see here, you get a good view across the harbor but don't watch A Symphony of Lights from here go across the harbor to TST! I watched from both view points and TST is definitely better, not that the light show is amazing might as well make the best of it.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
