I suggest to use the ferry that connect Kowloon to Hong Kong. The boat is old and you get a beatiful experience of Hong kong skyline. Of course i suggest an experience in the daylight and in the night.

Everyone in Hong Kong should really see the fireworks they used to have for Chinese New Year, held here..at the Victoria Harbour.. From this place as well, you may find many ferries going to Macau from Hong Kong. A very well organized place to visit.

Visited last May. Staying at the Ritz Carlton we overlooked the harbour with fab views day and night but the harbour trip is worth every penny. We have done both day and night trips and the views you get are stunning of the skyline. Fab photo ops during the day - bit tricky at night. Lots of boats in the... More

Very busy waterway but the ferry ride from Kowloon to Hong Kong was quick and very enjoyable plus the ferry was very clean. The terminal is easy to find and the Octopus card makes public transport a pleasure to use.

the 4th biggest harbour in the World, amazing to watch the number of ships being loaded each day. People going in and out on the piers to Kowloon, Macau, or other islands.

Came here in the evening to watch the light show. Very busy and the light show is pretty rubbish but the view of HK island at night was well worth it. Some good photos taken
