Victoria Harbor Hong Kong

Victoria Harbor and the infamous Hong Kong Skyline are a couple of the most photographed spots in Asia. Although there are quicker options to cross the harbor by taxi or car in one of the tunnels or on the MTR lines that access Hong Kong Island, many people still use ferries like this one regularly. A trip from Tsim Sha Tsui to Wan Chai or Central takes about nine minutes and offers some really nice views of the city. This particular image was taken from the waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Father down the waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui are quieter and less touristy places which offer equally nice views of the skyline on Hong Kong Island. This was taken near the Hung Hom MTR station along the waterfront.

Hong Kong is known worldwide for its food. In addition to having its own specialties of Dim Sum and "stinky tofu" along with many other things, Hong Kong offers some of the best ethnic food from all around Asia. Sushi restaurants can be found on almost every street and block in the densely populated Kowloon Peninsula and are very easy to stumble across in the New Territories. This sushi was at a place in Festival Walk not too far from the Sha Tin MTR station.
