Victoria Harbor is a natural land form harbor that is located between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. The harbor’s deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong’s establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading center in years gone by.
Throughout its long history, the Victoria harbor has seen numerous land reclamation projects undertaken on both sides of the shore, many of which have caused much controversy. Environmental concerns have been also been raised about the consequences of these expansion ideas, in terms of how it might affect the water and loss of natural habitat for wildlife and the affect on tourism and business in general.
It has also been suggested that the ongoing benefits of land reclamation in Victoria harbor may be less than the effects of decreased harbor width, thus affecting the number of vessels passing through the harbor. Despite this Victoria Harbor still retains its founding role as a sea port for thousands of international shipping vessels that pass through Hong Kong each year.
