    Fondest memory: I never had enough of Hongkong especially the unforgettable city harbour, looking over soaring skyscrapers. A tip from me, To get a best picture of Hongkong skyline is view it from the Avenue of Star, try focus your camera on 3 sides of Hongkong Island by dividing 3 tall buildings, which is 1st on left the Bank Of China, then HSBC bank in the middle, then later 3rd picture combination of International Financial Centre building.

    Victoria Harbour

    Skyline

    Favorite thing: If you don't do anything else (besides going up Victoria Peak), the least you could do is admire the skyline of Hong Kong city proper from Kowloon. Across Victoria Bay the city proudly displays its buildings and it's even better at night when there's a veritable light show over the city. See the Travelogue for more!

    Even here, the best things in life are free.

    Favorite thing: The skyline, as seen from Kowloon, is one of the most dramatic in the world.

    Go to the boardwalk at around 7:30 pm and catch the fountain show. Not quite as hypnotic as Bellagio's, but nice. Then at 8:00, turn around and catch the Symphony of Lights, an ambitious light show involving 18 buildings on Hong Kong island.

    But the best thing about this experience is that it won't cost you a cent (assuming you still have some left over from shopping).

    Favorite thing: enjoy the nightly view from the Kowloon side. We spent Christmas in Hongkong, and the highrises on Victoria were all spiffed up with lights, santas and reindeers.

    Fondest memory: sitting in the tea room of the Regent (very posh hotel, but reasonable prices for a cup of tea) and looking through the giant windows over to Victoria...

    Favorite thing: Do not miss the marvellous night scenary across the Victoria Harbour. Buildings around the harbour on both sides with sparkling light framed around and those leaking out from the offices people who work non-stopped til late mid night.

    Fondest memory: The local cusine and clubs usually hanging around

    Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, Hong Kong

    The RHKYC

    Fondest memory: The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is a haven not only for the rich and famous but more so for the genuine boaties amongst us that like a casual weekend sail. This picture is of the boats moored at the Yacht Club marina in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island.

    Favorite thing: The heart of Hong Kong is Victoria Harbour you can't miss it! It is definately on my top 5 lists of best harbours in the World. An abosolute must is to ride the Star Ferry across from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island (cost is $HK 2.20 for the Upper Deck and $HK 1.70 for the lower deck).

    Fondest memory: The one thing I always keep dreming about when I think of Hong Kong is, of course, Hong Kong at night. The lights of Hong Kong are the most fabulous in the World. Something about the view (from Kowloon or Victoria Peak) of Hong Kong Island at night that is stunning. Make sure to walk along the waterfront in Kowloon day and night to see the lights.

    by Mudhead Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: The night view of Victoria Harbour is the most famous sight-seeing point. You can view from the mountain or on the ferry across Victoria Harbour. Also, electronic consumer products in HK is very up-to-date and cheap, but make sure their voltage requirement fit your country.

    Favorite thing: Zoom in your lens & look for the JUNK where some Chinese boat people lives (it's very rare these days to find such boat).
