I've never seen a place quite like Hong Kong. The contrast between the glass and steel and the green of the mountains in the background is simply stunning...the whole place is a modern marvel and it only gets better as it gets dark and the lights come on. I can see why this is rated the best skyline in the... More

We stayed at Ritz Carlton Hotel at Floor 117 in the room looking Hong Kong Island and Kawloon. The view was to die for.

For the Symphony of Light. The buildings pulse and dance in a riot of colour. The skyline is spectacular, though, from any direction at any time of day. Whether from Kowloon looking across to the Island (which is our hotel room view) of from the Island looking back to Kowloon - both skylines are just beautiful, unrivalled.

Hong Kong's skyline is considered one of the best in the world, with the surrounding mountains and Victoria Harbour complementing the skyscrapers.Every night, many skyscrapers and buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour light up in a synchronised show called A Symphony of Lights, named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest permanent light and sound festival...

Perhaps Hong Kong's most spectacular attraction but it can be viewed a number of ways!! #1(Symphony of Lights) Hustle over to the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade before 20:00 and set up for the Symphony of Lights - a stunning light and laser show with music accompaniment. Great show but it gets a little crowded most nights. Best viewed from the... More

My wife and I walk along the Avenue of Stars in TST 2 or 3 times a week on our way home. I have never become bored with it. Sometimes disappointed when the air is not clear but on the days like today when everything is clear it truly is spectacular. It is one of the sites every visitor must... More

The Avenue of Stars is the place to go if you want to get an awesome view of the Hong Kong skyline. We came here during the night and all the lights were a really pretty sight! It's nice to just stroll around that area and enjoy the night view. Do note that since it's a tourist area, it will... More
