Just a laser light show. It goes for about 10mins starting at 8pm. If you want a good seat, get there around 7.30pm. But if you dont get a seat, the view is still great

During our few days in Hong Kong we found ourselves at the harbour most days. It is a lovely place to walk around and take in the sights on either side. The skyscrapers are great to view especially at night when they are all lit...More

Even though we were there in Jan., it was still around 20° every day. It was cloudy ur hazy, but the harbour is still very worthy of a boat trip if at all possible. Highly recommended.

Perfect viewing of the ferries and fishing boats in the harbour. Lots of different architecture side by side. Incredible reflections on the massive glass panels by day and beautiful lights at night

The Victoria harbor has ferry’s and boats including tourist dinner boats going up and down and it is beautiful to watch. The waters are clean and it is calming to watch. A view of the large Hong Kong skyscrapers is available from the harbor. Worth...More

Harbour is probably best viewed from a restaurant in one of the many hotels around the perimeter. Great view at night.

Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping

the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

Best Hotel in Hong Kong for New Year's Eve (4 Replies)
Greetings! Planning a trip to Asia with a stop in HK on New Year's Eve. Wish to ring in the New Year with family and watch the fireworks in Victoria Harbour. Any recommendations for a good hotel with great views of the Harbour? Been looking at Intercontinental, Mandarin Oriental, and Renaissance. Thanks!

Welcome to the Hong Kong forum! The regulars here will spot your post tomorrow, and fill you in with all types of great options. Perhaps you could repost with the length of your stay in HK, and a possible budget, if any. Another option to consider might be the Penninsula, the regulars will know about possible views from there. Also, there's a great viewing platform on the TST side of the harbour -- did you want to watch the show from your room, or from the harbour area itself? ...More

Victoria Harbour or Leighton Rd, Causeway Bay? (1 Replies)
I will be in HK in December and i am trying to figure out where to stay. I found a couple of nice hotels. One is at Victoria Harbour the other one on Leighton Rd, Causeway Bay. Which location is nicer? ( Safer, closer to public transportations, attractions etc) Thanks!!

Response frombibimbob|
'Victoria Harbour' is a very vague description and can mean a lot of things. The hotel on Leighton Rd (#133 I assume) is located at a convenient shopping location and close to MTR(subway).

Just wanted some clarification on this? are these 2 places 2 seperate places. Also am i right Victoria Harbour is in kowloon and the Peak is on the Hong Kong island side? please clarify? also are they both a place to visit?

Victoria Harbour is between the Kowloon peninsular and Hong Kong island. The Peak is on Hong Kong island, from where you can see Victoria Harbour. Both are worth visiting.
