This is just your ordinary light show. While the landscape of the Hong Kong sky scrapers is beautiful, the light show itself is too boring and totally not dramatic. It's worth watching it only if you happened to be in the area of the harbour (either sides of it) at around 8PM. The show lasts for apx. 15 minutes. Mind... More

It was cool to see lights synchronizing across multiples tall buildings. It seem to have no storylines thus there is no meaning being brought across. Those who had time can catch the beautiful lights, otherwise it can be missed.

At 8 pm every night dozens of buildings synchronize their lights for a 13 minute show. Go to avenue of stars for a front row seat. Light show is not great but still a nice thing to do in Hong Kong.

Totally underwhelming. I have seen it many times since it started and last nights 'show' was simply pathetic. Music and lasers intetacted occassionally and as one of Hong Kong's major attractions some one needs a kick in the bum for allowing this current 'show' to be put on. I have been visiting HK for over 3 decades now and lost... More

If you find yourself in Hong Kong, you should definitely go down to the river to watch this. It might be worth going on a boat, but I never have. The view/show is amazing anywhere.

We missed it on the first night we were in Hong Kong so we had a rushed dinner on another night to make it in time for the 8pm start. What can I say, totally not worth the effort. Music was lame, laser beams were not significant enough and neon lights were there to start with. Very disappointed.

I've seen this a few times. I really don't think it's anything to go out of your way to see. But if you are in the area, watch it, why not? Just ten minutes or so and Victoria Harbor is always beautiful at night, with or without the light show. I didn't enjoy it when I purposefully set out to... More

We have visited Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights many times in the past, viewing it from ashore and via a boat tour. And each time in the past we have found it to be worth the visit. However, during our visit in April 2015, we found the whole show to be lacking, in its display of lights and the actual... More

The night skyline with all the lights and their movement was terrific. The lazers, however, were a non-event. The former more than made up for the latter

We had heard so much about this "famous" laser show arriving in Hong Kong but it was a complete fiasco. The first day we missed this show due to dinner and we were feeling bad about it. The second day we made specific plans to catch it and went to Wan Chai to see it. The show was a little... More
