Very busy and vibrant harbour. So much to see and do. Access to ferries and other attractions. Harbour cruises the best way to see the magnificence of the area.

No matter what the weather is doing, Victoria harbour is always worth a visit. The hustle and bustle of the tradespeople and vendors, as well as the many tourists, create a continuous kaleidoscope of colour and movement. The Star Ferries are such an integral part of the history of Hong Kong, whilst the cruise ships bear testimony to the city's... More

We visited Victoria Harbour as part of a tour around the island and ended up on a short junk ride that provided a good opportunity to see the harbour from the water. We passed via the huge Jumbo floating restaurant that apparently caters for up to to 2,000 diners, around a number of fishing vessels and then the massive and... More

I was there when I was about 10 years old, I was really chubby back then. Now, I am back to this particular spot again when I'm about 18. This Year I'm going there again also which I will turn 22 now.

Near the Hong Kong convention centre is a pleasant promenade with superb views across to Kowloon. The building work takes the edge off it at the moment but when the work is complete I am sure another delight awaits.

Quick trip across the harbor. Boats are old, a bit smelly and uncomfortable seats. Hard to get a good view from down low. Wish you could be on the top deck to get a full view.

Enjoyed the light show so much that came and watched it twice. Love the skyline, tall buildings and atmosphere. The hollywood stars wasn't all that but had some performances going on. Weather was pleasant and touts tolerable.

Many small shops nearby, there is a laser performance in the evening. Do not need to wait long for ferry. Many places to take nice photos. Night view and lights on the tall buildings look very beautiful.
