in the middle of the city with Central district skyscrapers as the backdrop, the
Causeway Bay Marina and Tyhoon Shelter is a nice scene often over-looked by the
locals. But then the highway running next to it does not lend to its ambiance. more photos...
There are some restaurants across the highway where you can get a window table
to watch the boats go by - and the cars on the highway. At the time of writing,
there is even a McD! (2006.7.22)
At the edge of the
water is the site of the "noon-day gun" firing ceremony, a relic from
the colonial days. Anyone can just stand around to watch the firing of a cannon
there at noon.
The area is within walking distance from the Causeway Bay
MTR station after walking through a corner of the Victoria Park.
