“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We loved the ferry ride that gives you a different aspect of the city. Very comfortable, great value & the views were amazing.

“Beautiful Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The most beautiful harbour with great views day and night. Star ferries, old junks, container ships and cruisers compete for passage and offer great interest. The light show at night is great too.

“Gorgeous neon jungle obscured by smog.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

If China does not get its act together on pollution control, the magnificent views of Victoria Harbourview- mountain peaks, skyscrapers and neon nights will continue to be obscured far too often. Pity.

“A magical experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The reflection of neon lights flashing from the numerous tall buildings on both side of the harbour... the colourful boats...the hustle and bustle... the occasional live concert... The whole atmosphere is a magical experience at night. The cherry on the cake is the 10 minute light and sound show named "Symphony of lights" which takes place every night at 8:00pm with neon and laser lights from more than 40 tall buildings dancing in perfect harmony with some soothing music. Many would suggest Victoria Peak as the best place to enjoy the harbour view... But, if you really want to be in thick of things then Avenue of Stars located on the Tsim Sha Tsui side of the waterfront is the best place. Grab some delicious street food, take a front row seat of the elevated observation deck and emerge immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere. Taking boat ride across the harbour at night is also highly recommended.

“A must-take-photo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Other than the view, and the fact that this is one of the landmarks of HK, I don't see any real attraction of being here. Didn't got the chance to see the night show, though, because I hear the light shows are pretty great.
