To be at the center of both Kowloon and HK Island at 8pm is surely a good choice to watch the light show on the buildings. But I wish there will be more "active" building like the AIA building that contributes a lot in the show. Of course you can have a different feel at the Peak.

Do not let the taxi fleece you. Just take the tram but be prepared to queue, be it going up or down. Try not to go between 6-8pm as there will be a lot of people and you may be stuck in a human jam , it may 'jammed' you up for 1 hour just waiting for the tram.

It's always lovely to have a room with a view and this is definitely true in Hong Kong. The Victoria Harbour has changed a lot in the last three decades but still retains its charm. I prefer the view from Kowloon onto the island but both views are differently special.

The night view is simply superb. No wonder Hong Kong named as one of cities with highest electricity consumption. The Star Ferry ride is a must in Victoria Harbour. Walk for a while and you'll find Tsim Tsam Sui, one of the busiest districts in HK.

We took a junk boat onto the Harbour to watch the light show. Cheesy perhaps...but also a real highlight of the trip!

The night scenery was just jaw-dropping experience for me. I'd come again with my girl-friend next time.

I am sure it was beautiful before it became smoggy, dirty and over developed. It lacks soul and is just another Asian city pretending to be American.

Victoria Harbour is an overwhelming place not only because of the multitude of skyscrapers surrounding it, but also because of the boat traffic and crowds of people crossing from one side to the other for either business or pleasure. Tip 1: The best way to enjoy it is by taking the Star Ferry to the other side - either Central... More

Take the star ferry and enjoy the view of the unbelievable skyline on Hong Kong Island.. An abundance of sky scrapers, simply a must see
