Hongkong has the highest number of skyscrapers in world (I
always thought it was Newyork, but for now I go with wiki). Most of these
building are concentrated in Hongkong island (the other main area is Kowloon
peninsula with connects to China by land) against the backdrop of Victoria
|Skyline seen from Kowloon peninsula|
The skyline is viewed best from “Avenue of stars” across
Victoria and from Victoria peak.

But Hongkong also suffers from poor visibility and long
spells of wet weather making it very difficult to view the skyline. These
photographs look stunning (link here) but it is not always clear. I had visited
Hongkong few times but always had to struggle with overcast conditions.
But weather was much better when I visited Hongkong last month
with my family. It was very clear on the days we visited Avenue of stars.
It turned out hazy on the day we visited Victoria peak but
the views were much better than my earlier visit.
