Cant say enough about visiting HK for the first time, the views and skyline from the top of Hong Kong Island are spectacular in the extreme and are a must see.

Hong Kong is a unique place. The skyline is right on par with NYC. It is quite amazing what has been done to continue to enhance the skyline year after year.

Take boat cruise at night and catch the Hong Kong skyline as it is a sight to behold. With the mountain in the back and the wonderfully light buildings in the front, it is a remarkable sight.

The HK skyline is beautiful as ever, especially at night. However, the laser show at 8 PM is definitely not worth the time and effort. Quite pitiful compared to others such as in Singapore. I would avoid the crowd at the time.

Skies were mostly blue during our August 2014 trip. Based on other reviews, we thought that they would be overcast and we'd have a lot of rain, neither of which showed up. Under this condition, the beauty of the blue harbor against the surreal-looking skyscrapers, backed by pointed mountains was breathtaking.

The view was like nothing I've ever seen and was truly incredible. I visisted just as the sun started to set (the junk ship sailing into the orange glow of the bay was beautiful) and, of course, after sun set where it got pretty packed in time for the Symphony of Lights. The music sounds like it was lifted from... More

The skyline view very much depends on weather conditions as told by our guide. Thankfully, it wasn't too bad on the day we did a climb to near the peak and view was overall impressive with the bright lights of a cosmopolitan city.

First time in Hong Kong for 20 years and a lot has changed. This time having 2 days to squeeze in many sites of Hong Kong made this a very hectic journey. Though the skyline is definitely worth a look. They do light shows off the main walkway along the promenade and although slightly underwhelming. The skyline was truly very... More
