Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong

(4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Victoria Harbour into our Hong Kong itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Historic harbour of Hong Kong offers best views of skyline and mountains. Seen best with star ferries.  more »
  • 港島及九龍相隔一條維港,許多船隻駛過維港,地理因素使維港成為重要的港之一。如要體驗渡輪可至尖沙咀或中環乘搭渡輪到彼岸,在香港是很棒的體驗。  more »
  • 不斷地填海,我們看到越來越多的高樓,交通線的越來越密集,一步一步的縮小維多利亞港的大小,我們見證這個過程,希望在九龍和港島相遇的那一天,我會再來訪問!  more »

  • The beauty of the place where we stay is that it's near to a lot of tourist spots and Victoria Harbor Symphony Light Show is one of them. The whole family went and got a good spot to watch this spectacle, the expectation was because all the building were lit and it seems like they are about to drop the biggest light and show we will ever see, but it wasn't like that all. Yes there were lights, yes there were sounds, but it's almost concentrated on the right-hand side of the harbor alone, and the sound? it's too low you can't even feel the beat. This is one of those places I'm expecting some chill down my spine while watching and yet I felt absolutely nothing but disappointment. Conclusion: It might be one of those things that you'll look forward to seeing when visiting Hong Kong but it shouldn't, this especially applies if you're coming from a first world country that has similar cityscape and attractions.
  • Awesome place... the best things in life are free...it was the first thing in my mind when we visited the place. But it was Sunday and there were too many people around the place waiting for the day to be over... 😀
  • Hong Kong's landmark and capital. Must-Visit place if youre a traveler
  • Best Harbour View in the world! Prefer to view the Hong Kong island from Tsim Sha Tsui. Taking the cross Harbour star ferry from either side (Tsim Sha Tsui, Central/Wanchai) is a good way to enjoy the scenery
  • We were at Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade (near the Avenue of Stars) at 8pm to witness the Symphony of Lights from tall buildings from Hong Kong Central across The harbour. I appreciate Hong Kong's skyline very much but my location at the time didn't let me see the light show happening on my side of the bay. Also, the place was full of people trying to catch Pokemon stuff. Watch the skyline at 8pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for English narration.
