Hong Kong Nightlife

From gorgeous night scenery, fascinating night shows, to atmospheric night market and unique midnight dinning and bar culture, Hong Kong is definitely the top destination to see what a night of the modern world has to offer.

Splendid Night View

Being the essence of Hong Kong's night view and the best place to admire the stunning city skyline, the Victoria Harbor displays full of its glamour when neon lights started to burn in the shades of evening.

It is the magic time when onshore tower blocks glow in colorful lights, revealing the incredible beauty of romance and grandeur. And some lights would fall to the sea surface and dance with the waves, making the sea a dreamy starry sky. Once in a while, you could hear some whistles from passing-by vessels, which bring you back to reality and make the night picture flow.

No wonder Hong Kong is rated as "The three most glamour night views in the world", along with Hakodate in Japan and Naples in Italy.
