Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor is a world renowned tourist attraction that offers breathtaking panoramic views of Hong Kong’s skyline against its mountainous background in both day and night time.
The Victoria Harbor lies in between the Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula and plays an important role throughout the history of Hong Kong. The harbor is sheltered from the frequent tropical typhoons in the area by the mountainous Hong Kong Island to the South. In addition, the depth of the water in Victoria Harbor is deep enough to accommodate large cargo vessels plying the international trade routes. These factors helped established Hong Kong as an important trading hub during the British colonial era.
The Victoria Harbor is also a popular site for firework displays during important occasions. The popular places to view the Victoria Harbor include the Peak Tower at Victoria Peak, the piazza at Hong Kong’s Culture Centre as well as along the promenade of Tim Sha Tsui. However, nothing beats taking a night time cruise along the brightly lighted harbor way in one of the numerous ferries or traditional Chinese junks available.
