its absolutely beautiful. and dependong on the time you go there- you will see it differently. its best to go mid noon- and wait for the sunset. you can use the ferry from around your area and just take a trip to the view point, Or you could splurge on a small 40-60 min cruise at one of the piers. and go around the harbor. some of them cost between 250-400 HKD, depending on a boat and what they offer you. ( some give a complementary drink / snacks - others offer dinner with a higher price) it is a definate must if you are in hong kong.
