Snapshot: Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour


Victoria Harbour

Hong Kong, China

A visit to Hong Kong is never complete without checkng out Victoria Harbour.

Named after Queen Victoria of Great Britain, Victoria Harbour (or Victoria Bay) is a natural harbour that separates Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula. It is China’s largest harbour and home to city’s numerous ports, making Hong Kong one of the busiest ports in the world. It is one of Hong Kong’s major tourist spots and serves as artery for all types of sea vessels including the traditional Chinese Junk Ships which host harbour cruises for tourists.

But what makes this spot popular is the spectacular view of Hong Kong’s skyline. At daylight, Hong Kong’s skyscrapers serve as amazing backdrop but after sundown the flashing lights of the city’s towering structures add beauty to what is already a beautiful outline. Victoria Harbour also serves as stage for the ‘World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show every night with the Symphony of Lights.

Whether at daylight or at night, Victoria Harbour will make you feel the vibrant beat of Asia’s World City. Live it! Love it! Hong Kong!
