Victoria Harbour is the strait that separates Kowloon from Hong Kong Island. With an area of 16 square miles (41.88 km2). There is nothing more emblematic in Hong Kong than the view of Victoria Bay. It was around its harbor that Hong Kong was born. The deep waters separating Hong Kong and the Kowloon Peninsula are the reason why several fishing villages developed. Today, the bay is still the pulsating heart of the city and its iconic skyline is also one of the most stunning cityscapes in the world. A city this beautiful deserves to be seen from more than one angle.
The coastline of Victoria Harbour is very long, the sites of interest are numerous. On the island side of Hong Kong, you can admire the large modern buildings and the exhibition center, as well as the port for the "star ferry".

When the weather is good, you can admire the blue sky and white clouds, the boats and the ferryboat do not interfere with each other, and thanks to the spectacular and multicolored lights, the night view of Hong Kong is a wonder.
