Victoria Harbour 2

Morning  in Victoria Harbour

The early morning sun lit up the city so brilliantly. Unlike a previous visit where I was shown the harbour through the fog from one of the ferry boats, this morning, I was viewing it from the balcony of a smaller cruise ship.

A clear bright morning in Hong Kong.

Victoria Harbour has changed from a major marine route to a major tourist attraction. Another great place to view the harbour is from the top of the hills on the island. Aptly named Victoria Peek is a park at the top. A tram runs up to the peak. It is the world’s steepest funicular railway and has been in operation since 1888. A zoological and botanical garden is also at the top.

As I look toward the Star Ferry Terminal, I try to get my camera to capture the sparkling water. Only later did notice the warm glow from the early morning sun.

      I was reviewing comments from an old iPad and discovered that the slide show requires JavaScript which I believe Apple refuses to support. Do you have any knowledge of that?

    It’s just as beautiful in the morning as your photos were in the evening!

    Gorgeous images. I wouldn’t mind visiting there. A couple of the pictures remind me of Tokyo. Thanks for sharing.
