“Great to see on a clear evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I spent a good few evenings looking at the Hong Kong skyline. It is very relaxing to just look at the many buildings that contribute to the skyline. It is something you don't see in other cities and you never get bored of looking at many different things

“Amazing sight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Seeing HK lit up at night is simply a sight to see and makes for a great picture backdrop. Take a ferry at night if you can to see it all

“Magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Hong Kong is a beautiful city, and at night especially the skyline is amazing. I just love walking around the city and looking up or looking across the harbour from either Hong Kong Island or Kowloon, great

“One of the World's Spectacular Skylines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

The view of the Hong Kong Island skyline from Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon side must rank as one of the world's most spectacular skylines. It is a glass and concrete jungle of tall buildings striving to outdo each other in reaching for the skies, all framed against the waters of Victoria Harbour in front and the Peak at the back.

Unfortunately, in the last decades, the view has been somewhat obscured by bad smog. On a clear day you get good views. Otherwise, you will have to use your imagination having to peer through thick smog. On smoggy days, the views are generally better at night when the lights on the buildings light up.

“A great Skyline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

A unique skyline for all tourists. Especially impressive though around Christmas when the decorations add to the colourful lights and atmosphere.
