The area
Neighbourhood: Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an abundant number of high-end retail stores selling designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also contains a diverse range of attractions for the entire family. Whether taking a walk in Kowloon Park, exploring museums, going shopping or grabbing a bite to eat – Tsim Sha Tsui has something for everyone.

Best Vantage Points at Peak & TST Promenade
Feb. 2021
Even if you only have a brief stopover in Hong Kong, seeing the city skyline from a good vantage point is one of the best things you can do. Tourist guides almost universally recommend catching the Peak Tram to the top of the Peak. From here, you have a panoramic, birds-eye view down over the city and harbour. This is a spectacular lookout point as long as the weather conditions are decent. If not, the view can be obscured by haze, fog and pollution and you may not see much at all.
Recently the waterfront promenades along both sides of the harbour have been upgraded and are now beautiful, open walkways. On the Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) side, you can walk from the Star Ferry, along the Avenue of the Stars and look directly across at the iconic buildings that define the city skyline. These include the Bank of China and HSBC buildings, Jardine House, the IFC towers and the Exhibition Centre.
In the evening, the TST Promenade is the best spot to watch the Symphony of Lights play out across these buildings.

Not good

The high rise buildings are carbon dioxide emitting hotspot. The buildings are designed to have high carbon footprint. This is why Hong Kong skyline is not good for environment.

Why is everyone enamored about this? This is just a carbon puffing environmental degredation causing buildings. We are not a fan of Hong Kong skyline.

Amazing Point of View!
Dec. 2019
You can't find it anywhere else, mix of old & and new, hills & sea, city & jungle. Especially cool at dusk & dawn. Must visit place while you are in HK.
Just a perfect point of view from anywhere.

Simply incredible!
Sep. 2020
There aren't many skylines in the world that are as magical as the one in Hong Kong (during the day and at night). A must-do no matter where you experience it from.

Aug. 2020 • Couples
No matter what time of the day, the skylines of HK is amazing, from sunrise to daytime yo night time. Pictures say a thousand words. All I hope is that will do justice to these amazing skylines.

It's even better in person

This view is best seen from the Peak. Ride the Peak Tram up to this high vantage point where you can rent out binoculars and built-in telescopes. The Peak also has attractions and restaurants, and the ride up and down can eat up a lot of time, so do plan your day.

Iconic
Dec. 2019
You can't afford not admiring the skyline on a HK visit. It's amazing and iconic, both during daytime as well as at night (with the cheesy lightshow and music). Best seen from Tsim Sha Shui in my opinion.
