Victoria Harbour
Body Of Water
Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. Wikipedia
Area: 41.88 km²*
Situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula, Victoria Bay is the largest harbour in China and the third largest in the world, after San Francisco in the United States and Re de Janeiro in Brazil. It is home to most of the ports of Hong Kong, making the city one of the world’s busiest ports. The harbour bustles day and night with all manner of watercraft – from the historic Star Ferries to cruise liners, cargo ships, and wooden fishing vessels.
Origin of the Name
The harbour was named after the British Queen Victoria, who was on the throne for 63 years (1837 – 1901), the longest in the history of the Great Britain.
