is a dazzling blend of East and West that comes together to create an international city of sophistication and romance. Yachting provides one of the best ways to experience bustling Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong, where pleasure boats, junks and sampans all mingle together for an eclectic scenic view. Start your yachting tour from Central District’s Queen’s Pier or Tsim Sha Tsui’s Kowloon Public Pier and cruise past the spectacular city skyscrapers, Tsing Ma Bridge, which is the world’s longest suspension bridge, and on to the outlying islands and country parks. Cheung Chau Island is a quaint, thriving fishing community and Lantau Island features exhilarating mountain walks, wonderful beaches and a giant Buddha sitting high on a plateau. Lamma Island has great seafood restaurants in scenic surroundings and Sai Kung is known as Hong Kong’s “Back Garden.” Victoria Peak is Hong Kong’s most popular attraction and provides breathtaking city and harbor views, and at night, Hong Kong’s “Symphony of Lights,” glows along the waterfront, making it even more spectacular. The best place to view the light show is along the Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront promenade, or aboard a vessel in Victoria Harbor. Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the world, and English is widely spoken, so communication is not a problem. It’s also a year-round yachting destination, with the cooler weather being from the middle of September to the end of February.
