This is a good place to watch the endless neon lights across Victoria Harbour on Hong Kong Island, from North Point, Causeway Bay, Wanchai, Central to Sheungwan. At 9pm there was ten minutes laser lights and music show on the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Kowloon Canton Railway Clock Tower.

That was a Friday when I visit the Clock Tower. It is cold, windy, foggy and raining that day! The clock tower is under maintenance and I was quite disappointed that day...😢
