The history of the harbour is fascinating and we enjoyed walking along it and our ride on the Star Ferry. There's also a great view of the harbour from Victoria Peak. It's one of the busiest and biggest shopping ports in the world.

I have had the good fortune to have visited Hong Kong on several occasions and have never tired of Victoria harbour skyline, especially at night. The word magical best described how I felt when I first saw the harbour 20 years ago and over subsequent visits, my opinion hasn't changed. Be sure to see the sound and light show each... More

The central district has the most expensive land value in the world. The Victoria harbour is one of the busy & beautiful place to be in.

See the harbour from Kowloon side, Hong Kong Island has a generally more structured view and a mountain at the back that forms a great picture. A completely different experience day and night.

It was not so sunny on the day I came here so I could not enjoy a completely beautiful city with blue sky, but still feel a nicely active Hongkong from lovely Victoria harbour. A place "must-see" and worth it!

Victoria harbour is worth a visit if you are roaming around Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong. It gives a nice calm feeling and you can take a ferry ride which will be worth every penny

Really pretty for sunrise, fairly easy to get too and lots of locals out running, biking, and fishing. You can watch as the boats start to come in and the buildings across the water.

Victoria Harbor is what you think of in Hong Kong. You will go no matter what as it is the core of the city. Star ferry is excellent. The small shops at the ferry entrance hawk the same trinkets on the street, so get some there. there is an interesting photo gallery on the Central side of the pier. Great... More

It was a pity the avenue of the stars was closed for the construction works - presumable surrounding the extension to the Museum of Art. However the many events and celebrations (weekend) , families, wedding photos , and fishing - -its all happening here.

Thank SimplyFred
