Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbor separating Hong Kong Island in the south from Kowloon on the mainland to the north. The harbor's deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong's establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading center. The harbor is a major tourist attraction. Lying in the middle of the territory's dense urban region, it is the site of annual fireworks displays and its promenades are used as gathering places for tourists and residents. The best place for pictures is the Kowloon side from where you can look across the harbor to Hong Kong Island.
From Tsim Sha Tsui/Tsim East Metro Station, there are guided signs along the way to tell you the way to Starlight Avenue. It's clear that you won't get lost. There are many people on Starlight Avenue. Along the way, you can see the palm prints of famous stars, as well as souvenir stores. I remember Bruce Lee's 1:1 ratio on Starlight Avenue, many people are taking a group photo. Brother and Bruce Lee don't have palm prints. They're not there when they do it. In Victoria Harbour, you can see tall buildings on the opposite island. There's a light show at 8 p.m. You can also see Hong Kong local bands performing here, sitting around listening to them singing, enjoying the breeze gusts, very comfortable ~a group of people who work hard for local music, do not need you to give money, just listen attentively. At Starbucks on Starlight Avenue, I ordered a drink. What moved me was that the coffee maker painted a little girl with crayons on the cup. This is the first time that Starbucks has paintings on it. It hasn't happened in China yet. Next to it was a bar. When I was dazed at Victoria Harbor, a foreigner came to look at me. I was sorry. There are three Koreans sitting next door, listening to their Korean.. It seems that Hong Kong is an international metropolis. Starbucks also has no problem ordering in English. Victoria Harbour pier, there are boats to the island, as long as two Hong Kong dollars looks like, I don't remember, Brush Octopus. You can enjoy the scenery on both sides of the boat. There is a harbour city nearby, and almost all the common luxury brands can be found. There's also Apple's flagship store nearby. One-stop shopping is very convenient.
It’s a very beautiful place and I would recommend to go to the Sky 100 building.. you’ll get to see the view of Victoria Harbour from above, you can see Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon Peninsula as well!! I’ll definitely go back!! :)
A relaxing place to be with. You can jog, eat while seating on their benches. Walk around the harbour. And if you more time to spare you can also shop at the newest K11 mall.
its absolutely beautiful. and dependong on the time you go there- you will see it differently. its best to go mid noon- and wait for the sunset. you can use the ferry from around your area and just take a trip to the view point, Or you could splurge on a small 40-60 min cruise at one of the piers. and go around the harbor. some of them cost between 250-400 HKD, depending on a boat and what they offer you. ( some give a complementary drink / snacks - others offer dinner with a higher price) it is a definate must if you are in hong kong.
Victoria Harbour occupies one of the world's three most famous night spots. Having never been to Victoria Harbour is tantamount to having never been to Hong Kong. I heard that every year there are fireworks, super gorgeous. So at the end of 2014, we came to explore it. At sunset, when the lights were on, large crowds of people began to go to the shore. The police management was very standardized. All of them were set as one-way walking, and the number of admissions was limited in time. So when we know about the stampede on the Bund of Shanghai at the same time, we are even more grateful. We should learn from Hong Kong's management model to avoid tragedy. Although there are so many tourists, almost everyone can only stand upright all the way, but in the face of such a shocking and moving scenery, they are extremely excited and have no time to care for others. When the fireworks were gone, everyone was still interested, and the TV station came to interview them.
one of the most amazing views in the world day time and night time full of lights coming from Hong kong side . Nice waterfront in Kowloon side to stroll around , newly renovated with the Avenue of chinese stars ! and the new shopping mall K11 musea . top top notch . starbucks and bar in the best lication ever . unmissable been in Hong Kong .
Victoria Harbour was only a walk after our Crystal Bus ride, we enjoyed the listening to music and the singing while waiting for our boat ride. And during the boat ride, we loved the unli drinks ofcourse and the beautiful scenery of the city on both sides!You should try!
Amazing view in this incredible megapolis, visited many times and always the views and sunset stoping my breath. On of the best view from Grand Harbour Hotel observation deck.
Victoria Harbour is the most representative scenic spot in Hong Kong. It's free of charge. Of course, if you want to take a boat trip to Victoria Harbour, it's a fee to feel the flavor of the Xiangjiang River. Starlight Avenue will give you a glimpse of the development of Hong Kong's stars and entertainment industry. During the day, there are thousands of styles in Victoria Harbour. Seabirds fly. At night, the colorful night scenery is beautiful. Every visitor will be fascinated by Victoria Harbour. Her night scenery is beautiful, multi-level and colorful. Every evening at 8 o'clock, there will be a lighting performance of fantasy chanting Xiangjiang.
