On the surface, Hong Kong seems like an intimidating metropolis made of glass and steel. However, once you dig a little deeper, you’ll find vibrant city brimming with history, culture and local traditions. This video is part of a series that takes you through some of Hong Kong’s best landmarks and attractions.

Victoria Harbour

Hong Kong’s iconic harbour makes for a spectacular visual union between a man-made skyline and the natural environment. Named after Queen Victoria of Britain (1837-1901), the harbour divides northern Hong Kong island with southern Kowloon. The harbour’s sheltered waters provide excellent protection for trading vessels and remains one of the busiest ports in the world.
