Have a meal at a floating restaurant. Try Jumbo, which is iconic and has been part of the Hong Kong scene since the 50s
Victoria Harbour is Hong Kong’s life line to the world. This natural landform harbour, between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula, is the largest in China and the third largest in the world, after only San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro. Day and night the waters are ruffled by all manner of ships, from cruisers to cargo ships and even wooden fishing vessels.
For Queen and Country
The name, of course, comes from the British Queen Victoria. She sat the throne for 63 years — the longest in the history of Great Britain. During that time her country thrived economically and culturally - though often at the steep expense of others - and when Hong Kong was ceded to the British Empire by the Chinese, the harbour was quickly renamed.
Victoria harbour is renowned for being a truly beautiful sight at night. It’s skyline is formidable, and when the myriad, multicolour lights are reflected on the inky water the view is really something. Every night there is also ‘A Symphony of Lights’, in which 40 skyscrapers combine for a dazzling multimedia light show. The best way to watch this is undoubtedly on a night ferry quietly making the two-hour trip across the harbour.
On the Waterfront
Take a walk along the waterfront and you will find many of Hong Kong’s most popular attractions, including the Clock Tower, Avenue of Stars and Hong Kong Space Museum. Also keep your eyes open for the IFC Two Tower, which Christian Bale slid down as Batman in The Dark Night!
