The harbor is a major tourist attraction. Lying in the middle of the territory's dense urban region, it is the site of annual fireworks displays and its promenades are used as gathering places for tourists and residents. The best place for pictures is the Kowloon side from where you can look across the harbor to Hong Kong Island.
