Hong Kong’s Best Views - sights that will linger in the memory

Hong Kong is a captivating city that offers many attractions for the visitor. There are a number of vantage points in the city from where you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views, as listed below.


Victoria Peak

The lofty Victoria Peak is recognized as the point with the highest elevation on the entirety of Hong Kong Island. This peak is a popular tourist attraction with many visitors congregating on the site. From this location you will be able to enjoy sensational views over the bustling city. You will also be able to enjoy the lush greenery of the local woods and the walking paths that offer more spectacular views. Visitors may reach the Peak by the popular Peak Tram; the tramway will take you to the distinctively shaped Peak Tower. Adjoining this tower is the Peak Galleria, which has a popular viewing platform from where you can enjoy the view.


Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade

There is no doubt that Hong Kong boasts one of the world's finest skylines, and this appealing promenade is an excellent place to obtain a splendid view of it. This promenade is a captivating enough location in which to walk around in the daytime, but it is particularly attractive in the late evening when a sensational sound-and-light presentation, the Symphony of Lights, is staged. This spectacular show involves no less than 44 striking buildings that can be seen on the city skyline. An attractive bar located at the promenade, the Deck 'n Beer, offers a great spot to enjoy a relaxed drink by the waterside.


Night Cruise on Hong Kong Harbour

There is nothing quite like a night cruise on the picturesque Victoria Harbour to capture the imagination of the visitor. You will have the opportunity to sail around the harbour in a traditional Chinese 'junk' vessel whilst admiring the illuminated skyscrapers of the city. The sight of the breathtaking reflections of the city's many neon illuminations on the shimmering waters is sure to be an image that will linger in the memory. Visitors can enjoy drinks whilst the boat sails serenely on the waters of the harbour. In order to experience the many views described here, an excellent choice of accommodation would be a Wan Chai hotel Hong Kong offers like the Cosmopolitan Hotel Hong Kong. This appealing accommodation offers comfortable rooms and many modern amenities.


Star Ferry

Taking a ride on the Star Ferry is a one of a kind experience that all visitors will enjoy. The best option would be to board the ferry from Kowloon and to disembark at Central. At all hours of the day this scenic ride will provide views of the impressive skyscrapers and the verdant forested hills beyond. You can also take advantage of the enjoyable Harbour Tour which is a longer ride on the same kind of ferry. These reasonably priced and well-organized ferry rides are an excellent and affordable way to enjoy the remarkable views on offer.


Aqua Spirit

This trendy and stylish bar is a great place to enjoy a drink whilst experiencing the sensational views on offer. The dim lighting and dark furniture perfectly complement the panoramic views of the city skyline that you can enjoy from the bar. The huge windows are ideal for this purpose and the tables near them naturally offer the best views. On weekends a talented DJ plays lounge jazz and hip-hop here, creating an appealing musical backdrop.
