Starting 8 pm every night, this symphony of lights is of the most amazing one in the world! My peace of advices: 1. in rainy weather, you can see that. 2. It takes around 10 min 3. the language of instruction varies by English and Cantonese every other night. 4. the best view is from Kowloon side. 5. I guess... More

This attraction was billed as an unforgettable nightly spectacle. Sorry but my wife and I must have missed something. It was okay but nothing special. We were staying in a nearby hotel so didn't have far to go but if we had traveled any distance to specifically watch the show we would have been fairly disappointed even allowing for the... More

Could have been better but for a free show I shouldn't be complaining. Starts at 8pm and lasts for 15 minutes.

I went to watch symphony of light on the first day of my visit to Hong Kong. I must say that it is a must for all visitors to Hong Kong. It was just simply spectacular, and moreover it is free of charge!! 8pm everyday (if there is no change ).

This is rated as one of the must visit place in hongkong and there are special locations marked to see this " symphony of lights". There is also a costly boat tour with dinner available, which starts from central pier and tsim tsa tsui pier.., where this boat would be in the middle of the laser show. The symphony of... More

Fun to read all the other reviews, good and bad. I certainly wouldn't pay for a boat ride to see the show. I agree, there's a bit of "has it started yet"? But in fairness to Hong Kong, the night time skyline is so stunning that the extra Symphony just doesn't stand out. We stayed at the Intercontinental at the... More

We got there at 7pm and waited one long hour, (starts 8pm every night) expecting an explosion of lights, music, fire works and just a WOW experience? It was like 8.10pm and I asked my husband "when is it starting?" it was a joke! it was a few buildings switching on the lights on and off again. Than a pathetic... More

Our first night in Kowloon found us down at the harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui early evening so it was the prime time to see the Symphony of Lights. After a walk up and down the waterfront, we made our way to the viewing platform where we were able to get seats. It's lovely seeing the harbour lit up at... More
