Star Ferry at Tsim Sha Tsui (Hong Kong)


The ferry terminal overlooks Victoria Harbour and is a stunning sight at night. This is the biggest open space you can find in Hong Kong.

The Star Ferry terminal has been transporting people back and forth between Hong Kong and Hong Kong Island since 1888 through the Victoria Harbour. It connects Admiralty/Central with Tsim Sha Tsui before the alternative MTR route was established underwater. The Clock Tower and the building beside it (Hong Kong Cultural Center) are incredibly iconic landmarks as well as the ferries themselves.

Nearby along the water, Starlight Road is a nice promenade especially at night where it has a beautiful panoramic view of the Hong Kong evening skyline. All the buildings surrounding the harbour on both sides light up making up a spectacular light painting. This area is also perfect for viewing the annual fireworks as the building lights will make up the background of the fireworks.

This is the one of the best places to take night scape photos!
