The powers to be in Hong Kong, seemed have, over the years, turned this harbor into both an important part of their transportation/commuter infrastructure as well as a thing of beauty with things like the “avenue of stars”, a nightly laser light show every evening...More

Me and my husband love taking the ferries just so that we can enjoy the lovely view of Victoria Harbour. The daytime view (on a clear day) and the night time view is so different but both breath taking.

I went to Victoria Harbor both day and night. I highly recommend to experience it at both times of the day. It is magical at night and very beautiful during the day. Watching the Chinese junkets lite up at night presented the impact of being...More

We loved seeing the harbor both at night and by day. At night, is it best seen by a dinner boat, the Star Ferry or other tour boat. It is absolutely magical to see the lights of the city glistening reflections on the waters of...More

Victoria Harbor separates Hong Kong Island in the south from the mainland to the north. It is a very busy working harbor and also scenic providing a foreground for the Hong Kong Skyline with its impressive array of tall buildings surrounding the harbor. Taking the...More

Clearly one of the major harbors in the world. Clean. Skyscrapers everywhere. Not huge amount of boats but always something moving about. Light and laser show at 8pm every night is worth seeing, and you can see it from many places

Long famous for its stunning panoramic views, the harbor is a major attraction of Hong Kong. A myriad of lights twinkles at night from the skyscrapers on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula, making Hong Kong, together with Hakodate in Japan and Naples in Italy,...More

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

hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighborhood that never sleeps. On
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 Reply)
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).

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.
