Discovery Bay maybe.

Best answer: Maybe from West Kowloon looking west. I think the bridge in the background is Stonecutter's Bridge. And Discovery Bay is too nice to have all those random little ships out in front.

I can't answer your question, but there is a very good flickr stream of [old] HK photos, many of which are captioned. You might find your answer there, or one of the contributors might be able to help you.

Best answer: My guess, based on the two curvy breakwater thingies, is somewhere near here.
Note the curvy breakwaters, and if you zoom out, you can see the bridge out to the west.

Response by poster: It is the opening shot of the interview with Edward Snowden. |I just wondered where it was, not that the shot and the interview need in the same place. Island Pacific Hotel, Courtyard by Marriot?

Lamma Island vicinity, southwest of Hong Kong.

That is a view of the Yau Ma Tei typhoon shelter looking west, as Diag has pointed out. I bet it's from the Ritz Carlton or the W, both of which are in the Kowloon Station/International Commerce Centre complex immediately adjacent to the West Kowloon highway.
