    Symphony of lights show

    Favorite thing: A stroll around TST area makes me happy enough. At Nathan Road, there is Parklane where where you could browse through its stores and find some inexpensive items. And you can do store hopping here, if you are lucky, some of of the signature stores are on sale - just like my first time here.

    Fondest memory: Ending up our whole day tour of the city at the Avenue of Stars was a memorable one. The panoramic views of the harbor and Hong Kong Island skyline was a reward for me after accomplishing my daytime itinerary. The Avenue is a great vantage point to watch the Symphony of Lights show.

    A Symphony of Lights is another great reward. This spectacular multimedia event covers more than 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria harbor.

    Weather in Hong Kong

    by John6868 Written Sep 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Hong Kong has some great weather... months of sunny, warm, dry periods and then Typhoons when you get to stay home from work.
    It has one of the best weather pages which both gives you up to the second information on all the elements you need to know as well as all the past weather and seasonal averages.

    English Road Signs, but more exotic!

    Bilingual Hong Kong Road Sign

    Favorite thing: Check out the Road Signs. They appear typically British, but with a more exotic twist in that they squeeze in some Chinese letters at the same time.

    Although Hong Kong (and Kowloon) is now under the Chinese, it used to be British for decades before that, and many old British ways of doing things still exist there.

    It is worth noting here that Hong Kong is strictly speaking just a small island. However in common parlance, the term Hong Hong includes Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories.

  • Walking along Nathan Road

    Nathan Road in T.S.T.

    Favorite thing: from T.S.T. to Mongkok, from CBD to trendy point. from suit to in-fashion. Nathan Road is long which can spend you at least 25-30mins to finish (simply just walk along), you may be attracted by the shops stand along the street and finally you may spend 3 hours to finish this street :D

    Water lotus at a park at Kowloon, Hong Kong

    Favorite thing: When I was in Kowloon, Yin of VT bought me to this lovely big park near the ferry terminal in Kowloon. Unfortunately I could not remember its name but it is a very good green spot in an otherwise concrete and packed city.

    by vividvivian Updated Nov 2, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Temple Street at night - you will have another picture of Hong Kong (actually it's in kowlon, hehe) - food stalls and hawkers and fortune telling on the street...

    Fondest memory: Star Ferry - i dun know what will happen if we dun have Star Ferry one day. many travellers like this transportation alot to take pictures of Central and Wan Chai and also Tsimshatsui.

    Growth and development never end in Hong Kong!

    View of Hong Kong from Kowloon

    Fondest memory: Looking at the Hong Kong skyline and all the skyscapers & the Victoria Harbour at night from the Kowloon shoreline (somewhere near the Hong Kong-Kowloon ferry terminal) is a very memorable experience. Unfortunately the photos could not come out but I took some during the daytime and one photograph is attached.
