At the very top but I'm biased. I lived there for a few years in the late 60s and it stole a big piece of my heart.

It'd be pretty high up there....if you could actually see it through all the smog. Took the star ferry for nostalgia's sake last time I was in HK. Couldn't see **** on either side.

Very high up there. Last time I visited HK, I was staying at a hotel that overlooked Victoria Harbour. The view was spectacular, I loved looking at it at night.

Last time I was there, I went up the Peak and could only just make out the water on the Hong Kong side, let alone see the other side of the Harbor.

Let's put it in a ranking with other similar famous harbor cities - Sydney, Cape Town, etc.?

What other cities would you rank up there with Hong Kong, and in what order?
