Victoria Harbour spreads across the South China Sea, separating the Hong Kong Island in the south from the Kowloon Peninsula in the north. The site of the annual fireworks display and featuring a harbour cruise across its promenade, Victoria Harbour is a prominent attraction in Hong Kong.
As a functioning port, Victoria Harbour is known to be a crowded spot at all times of the day. Along with dazzling views of the distinct Hong Kong skyline, from various vantage points, you may enjoy the world-renowned show, “A Symphony of Lights”, and even ride aboard cruises with informative commentaries in both English and Mandarin based on features of the historic Harbour.
