    Fire Work over Victoria Harbour

    by backpackerbaby Written Nov 1, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wish you a bright new year!

    Victoria Harbour is always the most beautiful place in Hong Kong. With the decoration of large-scaled fire works, Victoria Harbour becomes fabulous!!! In Hong Kong, fire work shows are always organised on the second day of Chinese New Year and on National Day (1 October ).

    If you wanna have an unforgettable Chinese New Year in Hong Kong, you must see the fire work show!!! The best locations include the Peak, the promenade outside Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and that in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

    Pretty Pink

    I have seen these very pretty pink flower along the Victoria Harbour at the very early morning when we went there wandering with hubby as it's one of the best time to go there. The park is not packed with lotsa' people if you will go there early so, took this one here in there with a drop of water!

    glitters and sparkles

    Hong Kong harbour glistens with the most exciting and sparkling display of fireworks at every Chinese New Year celebration and special events. This year, 2003, on Nationa Day, there is a series of fireworks display over the harbour, featuring a multi-national entry on 3 weekends. Here show a glorious pattern of one of those magnificent fireworks.

    Victoria Harbour is one of the busiest in the world. The Star ferry constantly plows the waters between Kowloon and HK Island, but there's also international commercial ships, local fishing boats, any number of pleasure cruisers as well as more traditional boats simply 'getting on with their business'.

    Me

    No visit is complete without visiting this harbour. Or you can just sit down in there and wait for the sunset and then the lights of the glittering skycrappers across of the skyline of HongKong will be watched out! There are alot of people going in there and most of them are my kababayan's- Filipinos who are most are working as domestic helpers..I was very happy to see them! Infact, I'm proud of them..as they are the ones too who give our government a high percentage of $$$..they just sat there and wait for the Sunday to be over..

    I've seen a band playing right next to the Globe style dome which is the Space Museum which is in the Salisbury Road. And you can see the pretty Clock Tower..Most of the local meets in this place if they want to meet up near the area..

    Essentially, HK is made up of many great architecture in its skyline. Nice modern buildings adorn its business district & the very beautiful Victoria Harbor; one of the MOST beautiful harbor in the world! Fascinating in the day & romantic in the night!

    TSIM SHA TSUI WATERFRONT PROMENADE

    by Adeline_Foo Updated Sep 3, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Experience the combination of reflections in VICTORIA HARBOUR(one of the world's busiest ports), illuminations from the buildings, and lights from cruise ships at the TSIM SHA TSUI WATERFRONT PROMENADE.
    This is a fantastic place ... very beautiful at night ... and very romantic too! We first went there during the day where we enjoyed the daytime scenery and catching some people fishing. Pretty ordinary then but when night falls, the place turned into a beautiful place with neon lights from the tall office buildings at the Hong Kong Island

    Take a ferry across the Victoria Harbour, preferrably after dusk.
    The view of the two sides of Victoria Harbour is stunning. I am never tired of such a ride. It is such a beautiful way to experience Victoria Harbour, and it is so inexpensive: it costs only around USD 0.3 for oneway.

    Cruise on the river

    by piedleger Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can take a nice boat cruise from which you can see both sides of the city, the tall apartment and business buildings. Then finally, before you head back you go under the longest suspension bridge (two levels) in the world (longest that the Golden Gate)

    Stunning by night, the ultra-modern skyline of HK island is (almost) equally spectacular by day. The variations of architectural design are more apparent by day - and it is an ever changing skyline.

    Take a harbor tour on a 'junk.' These are really just touring boats with a junk-like exterior. The harbor is, after all, what Hong Kong is all about, so you've got to see it.
