Why Victoria Harbour is special ?

Victoria Harbour is one of the world's busiests, and quite an engrossing sight with the large cargo freighters and passenger cruise liners sharing the waterways with tiny sampans and junks, barges and ferries, all moving along and going on their daily routines, day and night.


As you can expect, the offerings for a Victoria Harbour Cruise are endless. There are all sorts of cruises and vessels to choose from. Cruises leave conveniently from piers on both the Hong Kong and Kowloon sides.

It is my fourth time to Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour never fail to awe me with its breathtaking view. We took the Star Ferry from Central and went across to Tsim Sha Tsui. Once we arrived, everyone were busy snapping pictures or asking people to snap their photo to record the beautiful skyline and neon lights filled buildings. The harbour remind us of the Hong Kong dramas as they like to showcase the harbour. Then we waited till 8pm for the Symphony of Lights as laser lights are being displayed from the other side.

The promenade walk at Tsim Sha Tsui affords an unparalleled view of the Victoria harbor. Taking a leisurely after dinner stroll is sure to feel very satisfying.

The ferry was so cheap and they run all the time. It is the most scenic way to see everything on Kowloon and Hong Kong Island Harbour. In the evenings make sure you go to Victoria Harbour for a really lovely lazer and colourful light show. All the buildings change colour and there were a lot of Christmas themed decoration lights on the buildings in November when we were there. Lots of the hotels are on the Harbour.
