Victoria Harbour, a natural landform, is named after the longest-serving British Queen Victoria, who was on the throne for 63 years (1837 – 1901).
The Harbour, situated between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula, is said to be the largest harbor in China and the third-largest in the world, after San Francisco in the United States and Re de Janeiro in Brazil.
The Harbour is home to most of the ports in Japan. And this makes the port one of the busiest ports in the world. The Harbour, which is open 24 hours every day, services an average of 220,000 ships each year.
Tourists can enjoy the most spectacular views of the city from the water. And are advised to set sail after sunset for the world’s largest nightly light and sound show at 8 p.m., when the city’s skyscrapers erupt into seasonally themed lighting effects synchronized to music.
