Take in the Hong Kong skyline from Kowloon

Hong Kong's spectacular skyline is already one-of-a-kind. But what really makes it stand out is its photogenic positioning right across the water from a public park where you can relax and really take the whole thing in. Right outside the Tsim Sha Tsui ferry terminal there's a long promenade (recently updated with a raised viewing platform) where you can sit down, stroll along, take pictures, or pay one of dozens of guys with digital cameras, PCs, and color printers on pushcarts to take one for you.

A little further along you'll find the Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong's answer to Hollywood's Walk of Fame. For bonus points, see how many of the names you recognize (no points awarded for Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee).

There's also a nightly laser show, accompanied by synchronized light effects at some of the skyscrapers. But really, it's too much — the view is already perfect, and the razzle dazzle just distracts from that.

Getting there

For the best experience, take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui. You could also take the MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui or Tsim Sha Tsui East station, but it's not nearly as fun.
