Hong Kong Skyline, Hong Kong

4.6
#2 of 196 in Sightseeing in Hong Kong
Landmark Tourist Spot
Hong Kong Skyline remains one of the most impressive things about this world-class city. For the best view, make your way to the top of Victoria Peak, where you can look out unimpeded over the whole island and its cityscape. You'll also get fantastic views by simply taking a walk along the river. Hopping on a boat cruise will give you the chance to view both the dense collection of skyscrapers beyond Victoria Harbor, and look back on Kowloon. At night, a dazzling show of colored lights, laser beams, and searchlights illuminates the dark sky on both sides of the harbor, and is worth a watch. Put Hong Kong Skyline on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hong Kong itinerary maker.

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.
