The Symphony of lights which is considered to be he Worlds largest permanent light and sound show and also has a mention in the Guinness book of world records is a good sight to watch. It involves 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour. It's well synchronized to music. The narration is in Cantonese. The show starts everyday at... More

I've seen the light show a few times now and come to the conclusion that it's better when there is a smoggy/foggy atmosphere, this is because the laser beams and search lights show up better. The lights on the buildings do flash in time with the music but they don't have as much WOW factor as the lasers. There seemed... More

Again, yet another too hyped attraction on victoria harbour. They certainly can improve the light show with more high risers taking part. Few highrisers on the other side of the harbour emit laser light syncing with the music played at the victoria harbour side.

It was a bit disappointing, not really much of a show just some flashing buildings and the odd laser from the rooftops, if you are in the area go and see but Inwould not to outbid my way to watch again!

Had always wanted to see what this light show was about. Got to the viewing area in Tsim Tsa Shui to stand amongst the crowd. Finally started and what a disappointment. A couple of green laser lights off a couple of the buildings...

This show is boring, Hong Kong should be able to offer something better. I think this place is popular only because it's seen everywhere, but again, it's overrated.

Out of hundreds of buildings in the skyline, only 2 buildings actively lit up during the whole show. Its not even colorful. Further add to that, it was drizzling and crowded with people fighting for seating. Better spend your time at the nearby Harbour City Mall instead. Oh well, you live and learn.

The Symphony of Lights show consists of green light beams from atop 3-4 skyscrapers and a few buildings' lights changing to the beat of music. The music can be heard if you watch this from the viewing deck near the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower on Kowloon (close to the Avenue of Stars). The show could have been great... it... More

Yes, the skyline is very impressive but the lightshow was a huge disappointment. Standing in a huge crowd to watch 6 lasers dancing on horrible music just wasnt worth it. Walking along the waterfront is very impressive tho

The harbor is huge and l have no expectation about the symphony of lights before, this is much better than l thought. I feel like all high rises play each other for entertain people. The music is great, the length of show is not too short and not too long. It's very easy to go to there, we had a... More
