it's a bunch of skyscrapers that are lit up after dark. i don't know what people expect to be so exciting about this. it might be amazing if you're a farmer who has never seen a building over 5 stories in your lifetime.

Don't expect all the skyscrapers will be shooting lights to the night sky, it's only a light show by the participating buildings accompanied with musics. Plus, be prepared to see a light polluted night sky as the backdrop of the show. Worth visiting coz it's still a grand light show plus you can relax by the harbor enjoying the breeze.... More

Contrary to the hype and the marketing pics, the Symphony of Lights is a big farce. Supposedly happens at 8pm everyday. Only to witness this we went all the way up to the Victoria Peak and waited out in the chill - but alas - within five minutes we realized there was nothing much going to happen. At best, it... More

I was disappointed with this for all the hype. All the this is a lame light and laser show with terrible music. The only reason to come down is to get some nice night photos of the skyline and people watching as some of the tourist can be amusing.

Hong Kong skyline was more gorgeous at night. I was amuzed but I was expecting more of it.Few buildings paticipated in the show when I watched the show. Overall, it is worth to visit and walk on the promenade after. 👍😃

Hong Kong doesn't have much to offer, and this light show was created in a attempt to give the city some personality, rather than being the gateway to China, the show is not much better than big Dave's mobile disco, 15 minutes of my life I wont get back

Unless you're over 65 and looking for a slow pace, don't bother. Longest hour and a half of our lives.

best to take a cruise or the ferry to see the best views. All the big buildings seem to participate in it. However most of the speaking is in Chinese so you will just have to watch and enjoy.

Family holiday with another family, so 4 adults, 2 young teens & 2 kids under 8. We had a big day out going to The Peak, walking around HKI & returning to see the Avenue of Stars & the Symphony. Maybe we were all tired & although we appreciate the logistics to hold such a large event on a daily... More
