Victoria Harbour

This was probably the most popular sight in Hong Kong and I would say what identifies it besides the Bruce Lee statue at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade which is as of this writing is undergoing a renovation. I know there’s been an issue running about this to be nominated as the UNESCO World Heritage in Hong Kong and not the Chi Lin Nunnery which they thought about as not UNESCO worthy given it doesn’t really embodies the country in its identity. I can’t comment much about the said issue but to just admire this man-made (I would say) view in which is truly something you cannot miss. Although the Symphony of Lights isn’t really something to be in awe about, the ambiance at the Kowloon Public Pier, the ferries going back and forth Hong Kong Island, street performers at night and the historic clock tower watching Victoria Harbour makes it so popular. The area itself is flocked by tourists day and night. I think I saw more tourists than locals riding the Star Ferry going to the other side of the harbour. It seems rather amazing that TST itself is alived and fueled by the tourists with all its bright lights and luxury consumerism all over the place.
