Hong Kong Harbor is truly an amazing sight, especially at night. The view from the island side to Kowloon is incredible as you cannot believe the number and amount of high rise buildings. The view from Kowloon toward the island side is spectacular in a different way; the lights of the buildings at night are beyond numerous - bright and... More

We were very underwhelmed by Hong Kong. The skyline is illuminated and I guess some people get excited by that but we felt like the place was America meets Asia and the skyline exemplified that. If your life revolves around shopping, you will find plenty here - nearly all of it exactly the same brands as you would find any... More

Easily the most striking thing about all Hong Kong. Best view of it was Horizonte Bar in hotel Madura just off Nathan Very good place to soak up the nighttime atmosphere of the city skyline.

Day or night, it is a stunning view. During the day, the skyscrapers of Hong Kong, the most vertical city in the world, can be seen clearly and during the night, the luminous skyline is amazing. Additionally, this is a great place to watch the bustling harbor. Anyone who visits Hong Kong must witness this breathtaking sight.

As a New Yorker who has aways loved Manhattan with its lights and views, I can honestly say that the Hong Kong skyline took my breath away. Go there right at sunset and watch all the biuldings slowly being lit up. Simply take a seat and enjoy the show...literally. Once the sun sets and all the skyline is lit up,... More

From either Hong Kong or Kowloon this is one of the best photo sites going. It is spectacular and you can find vantage points to shoot photos right around the city. And it doesn't cost a cent!

This view is beyond words. You'll stand in awe of the shimmering, tall, and unique architecture of hundreds of buildings. View the skyline at 8pm then you'll go gaga on which view and direction to look at. The musical light show is over the top. The splendid way to end your day tour.
