Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong

4.6
#2 of 106 in Parks in Hong Kong
Between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, Victoria Harbour remains famous for panoramic views of the city's skyline set on a backdrop of rolling green hills. The harbor's strategic and sheltered location was a main factor in Britain's colonization of the island, as well as Hong Kong's emergence as a center of trade. The harbor lights up when the sun goes down, making it a particularly spectacular sight at night. From here, jump aboard a harbor cruise for more views and sightseeing.

  • Great seeing this harbor , very busy . Great road bridges and tunnels well architectured and engineered crossing the harbor. Was good to see.  more »
  • It is a Gulf that separates Hong Kong S.A.R. Island and Kowloon peninsula. Day and night, you can enjoy your time. It is, as well as tourists, locals and people fully enjoy to the best spots.

  • Nice area, but just another city area. Nice waterfront, not too busy in the evening for a walk and a general look around.  more »

  • The majestic Hong Kong Victoria harbour has lost a lot of its charm after heavy reclamations by the new SAR government have reduced its size massively, creating very choppy waters and very poor public access. The once romantic star ferry crossing is now no more than a 5minute shaky ride with the once charming and authentic colonial Central Pier replaced by a very ugly new pier coming right out of a Disney theme park design guide book.
  • A great place to view the wonderful buildings in Hong Kong. There also is a light show at night.
  • Separate Hong Kong Island and Kowloon peninsula. Beautiful evening views of the city. Bring your camera.
  • Great night visit. Plenty of lights & people. Great boat show also when we visited there Dec. 2016!
  • Stunning vista. Hong Kong is one of our all time favorite international cities.

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.
