Famous for it’s spectacular views, Victoria Harbour has won the hearts of everyone since the British first laid eyes on it. Day or night, this is the best place in the city to get a full panoramic experience of the city. Looking out towards Hong Kong Island, you’ll see the effect modernity has had on the landscape: skyscrapers of every size and shape cut into the sky.
The Symphony of Lights, named the world’s largest permanent light and sound show, includes more than 40 of the skyscrapers to create a stunning display of coloured light, laser beams and spotlights in a synchronised musical experience. It takes place nightly at 20:00 local time. The best views? From Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the Avenue of Stars, on a boat cruise right in the harbour or along the waterfront promenade outside of the Golden Bauhnia Square.
