Victoria harbour at night was lovely, as was the ferry ride across the bay from Wan Chai. The reflection of the lights on the water on this bustling harbor was a delight. The view of the different buildings with their changing lights added another dimension.

The symphony of lights show at the harbour was amazing! The chinese junks that were lit up, sailing along the water added to the picturesque scene that can never be forgotten.

The Harbour is bustling! The best way to see it at its best is to go to the waterfront and take the star ferry from The island to Kowloon or back. Its extremely cheap, the trip is short and you can great some great pictures. Around 8pm, it takes a little stop so you can see the symphony of lights.... More

Go to Victora Harbor to see the Hong Kong skyline. It's worth seeing it at day and night. And if it's a safe area even after dark (at least in the early evening when I went there).

Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. The harbour's deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong's establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre.

The walk of fame is a good attraction also for foreign people who don't exactly know all the star present there. The laser show which starts in the evening is not such amazing as the people of the hotel said and you can enjooy the promenade instead.

Wasted my time, walking up then down. The avenue of stars looks old and a disgrace for HK stars, no image at all. The lights displayed simply doesn't make any sense. Seats were limited, left the show after 5 minutes, total waste of time.
