Just back from Hong Kong and stayed at the T Hotel (great hotel, its basically a teaching hotel so service is excellent with plenty of students and supervisors in attendance, highly rated by TripAdvisor) which overlooks the East Lamma Channel. Plenty of ships use the channel with the pilot station in a bay just above the photo of the AS CLEMENTINA, you have to photogragh between the tower blocks but this is not a problem. Once past the tower blocks you can photograph the main route into Hong Kong and the anchorage. Although I did all mine from the hotel balcony using a 300mm zoom however a smaller zoom is possible. If you want waterline shots the catch a bus down to Cyberport Road in Telegraph Bay from where you can photograph the whole channel, small zoom here as ships are quite close. There is shade under the trees which you will need as it was 34 deg. when we were there. Sun is a problem after midday. Examples of photos below.
