With little land available in the territory the government reclaims land from the sea. The beautiful Victoria Harbour is another victim to land reclamation as well as Central district's original Star Ferry pier which was dismantled earlier this year. With so much reclamation going on one day all that may be left of the harbour is a footbridge from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon.
