The skyline is definitely something to see but I thought the "lightshow" was pretty underwhelming. Tons of people and selfie sticks to dodge for a little blinking and some faint music. Fortunately, it's a fairly short experience.

Hong Kong has the rare privilege to combine verticality and expanse. The result is an incredible skyline, it is best observed there. Like you look at manhattan from the brooklyn heights

Everyone must see Hong Kong! It is hard to believe that so many people live in such a small space. The tall buildings seem to have been there forever, they blend in with the mountains and the bay. At night they light up and glitter like stars.

Amazing views and skyline during the day and also at night. Harbour is such a vibrant place and a must see when in Hong Kong.

For any skyline or big city enthusiast Hong Kong's skyline surely ranks as a must see. The tall buildings against the harbour, with the mountains in the backdrop are magnificent.

The skyline is best seen first in daytime, then sunset and then fully lit at night. The light show is a bit naff and disappointing.

Hong Kong is one of the largest cities I have ever visited. The skyline is beautiful, especially at night. It can be viewed from one of the ferries that travel between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon that don't charge much. If you purchase a ticket on the Big Red Bus that allows you to hop on and off at your... More

The Hong Kong Skyline is absolutely amazing to see. Not yet being able to compare it to any other skylines in the world I have to admit this will be tough to beat. We sat on the Kowloon side at the end of Ave of the Stars where it meets the Hong Kong Museum of Art. We decided to stay... More

You have got to go here even if it is just for the views, remarkable, we have never been anywhere as exciting as this before and we have done a lot of long hall travelling!

Above our expectation as we thought to be similar to new years eve fireworks. bt its something totally different. Read about it on Guiddoo's app but was not sure to give a visit. I am happy we went.
