Ships in Hong Kong Harbor

My hotel room looks out over Victoria Harbor from Central, facing Kowloon across the harbor, and I spend time watching the boat traffic in the harbor.  Victoria Harbor is about 1 km (.6 mile) wide and 9 km (5.6 miles) long, is sheltered from storms by the mountains on Hong Kong Island, and is deep enough for the largest ships.

This was once one of the British Empire's largest military and trading ports and is now one of the world's busiest commercial ports.

I just watch the huge variety of ships come and go.

Ships passing by

The harbor is incredibly busy and, sitting at one spot, there is always something interesting passing by.  I site mesmerized for long periods just watching it all.
