Great views from the harbor especialy with holiday lights. I recommend going in the Star Ferry day time and night time and enjoying a stroll along thr pier to see the buildings lit up.

I never grow tired of looking at the harbour view especially from Tsim Sha Tsui towards the Island. It's glorious when the sun shines, it's mysterious when the mist falls and it's fabulous at night. We love sitting on the Promenade at sunset and watch the lights come on before heading off to dinner. If your phone or camera allows... More

The night skyline is very colourful. The laser shows every night over the harbour are very good. The Christmas light shows were very impressive. Each night different buildings participate in the show with flashing light displays. All the buildings around the harbour light up and the displays are really colourful and imaginative. Isabel Alton

The Hong Kong skyline was one of the reasons I chose to visit Hong Kong and I made sure our hotel was situated on Kowloon so we could look at it every day and night! The laser/ light show is a little bit lame but it's free, they could do with some louder and more powerful music but it's extremely... More

Beautiful skyline at night. Take the Star ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui for the experience and proceed to the jetty adjacent to it. You can have a great view of the city skyline from there. It gets pretty crowded at night during the Symphony of Lights performance which starts at 8pm where the participating buildings across the Victoria Harbour lights... More

Each evening, the skyscrapers and major building of the island are lit up in a variety of always changing colours. They can be viewed from the mid-levels but are best from the shoreline of honk Long or Kowloon and even more so on an evening trip on the Star Ferry from Kowloon
