Victoria Harbour - Review

Hong Kong owes much of it’s history to Victoria Harbour, a natural landform harbor. Even before the British began to fight for possession of the harbour, the waters here had significant recreational moolah; swimming and water polo included. Today, it’s famous for it’s divine panorama of a colorful urban skyline superimposed by a ridge of mountains. There is no end to the light shows performed on the harbour, including a government sponsored one called A Symphony Of Lights. Naturally, you ought to visit it at night. It’s also a great place to see form a distance from Victoria Peak.

Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Reviews

  • The feeling of being here is absolutely incomparable to anywhere else, at least for me. If you want to enjoy this unique view in peace, aka without getting trampled to bits by the army of tourists, I would advise getting up with the sun one day and heading over there at about 6am. Then you’ve got maybe a window of about an hour; but the silence, the rolling waters, a humidity that hasn’t yet reached 90%... it’s totally worth it

  • Visiting this via walking through Avenue of the Stars (this method of visit is free, for sure), this area is a must visit in HK since it delivers beautiful city lights combined with urban seaside view and several boats pass by so often. For your consideration, you should pick the day with good or clear weather and wait until sunset, so you could enjoy the city lights with optimal pleasure. Unfortunately I visited this place when the fog is very bad so I couldn't take any good pictures of those lights.

  • Amazing view of Hong Kong! A must for every traveler thus expect a lot of tourists. Lights show is a little disappointing though from what I was expecting.

  • The view of the HK skyline is gorgeous. There's a light show too!

  • Spectacular views during the day and night from any direction Kowloon or Central Hong Kong. The 8pm lightshow I would skip though, too much hype for a bit of music, strobe lights, and night signage.
