Like many of the world's most recognisable sights, the harbour view (at night in particular) is still amazing even if you've seen in pictures many times. You can't go to Hong Kong and not see it.

This is one of the most beautiful sights with the ships and boats of all sizes and Kowloon in the background. There are mountains around Hong Kong as well. At night the lights are vibrant and awesome to see.

If you really enjoy the Victoria Harbour, first of all, I would recommend you to take a tram either from Central (near Hong Kong Bank headquarters) or from Causeway Bay (near Sogo Department Store) to Wanchai MTR station.Walking along the footbridge that leads to the Wanchai pier, then you can take a ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui. Within ten minutes,... More

Even though you are on a limited budget, you can still afford a ferry trip across the harbour. The trip is very romantic.

If you like modern buildings, visit this place and see one of the most wonderful place in the world! I will not forget all those lights shining and ahowing the modern city of HK.

If you want to occupy the best location for watching the light on 8PM, you should go there on 7.15PM. The fast foods or snack should be prepared. You will be hungry and it's hard to find the food on the harbour area. Mcdonald or fast food near the harbour are full of people. The lights are beautiful and worth... More

We recommend a quick trip on the Star Ferry to see this historic harbour and to view the skyline. We went to the Symphony of Lights--it was OK.

At 8.00pm every night is a sky-show of laser light beams, from high rise buildings on Hong Kong Island. Worth being there.

Go in the night to catch HK's beautiful skyline. The symphony lights show is a complete letdown. If HK's Tourism Board is reading this - please revamp the light show, you have so many tourists waiting with anticipation but went away wondering what was it they have just seen.

Interesting and always packed with people.... Provides a fantastic view of Hong Kong at night and there are also street performances that helps to heighten the atmosphere. Recommend spot for night @ Hong Kong.
