“o.k.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The skyline is very pretty at night over the water-we saw it from a cruise ship and it was truly lovely-during the day it is just o.k. - nothing special

“A good sight night and day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A very typical sight, seen many times over in photographs, but looking at the real thing is something else, specially at night. During the day, pay a visit to the Peak and look at the Hong kong
skyline from the very top. After sundown, enjoy the light show from either Central ( Victoria Harbour ) or from Kowloon side..... its breathtaking !!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The night time laser show is a treat. We had a perfect view from our hotel room and from the outside lounge. I have heard seeing it from the ferry is even better

“Stunning sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Hong Kong skyline is world famous. Most probably one of the most fantastic skyline on the planet day or night. I have a personal preference for night time. The best way to enjoy it at leisure is to go to Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade near the Hong Kong Cultural Center. It is also great to use one of the many ferries that shuttle between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. There are not many cities in the World where you can watch the sea traffic at the same time. I can only think of Istanbul, Sydney and Stockholm. So this is the place to go and watch this unique scene.
