NIce to watch but not that impressive anymore

The lights on the building seems to dance with the music. At 8pm it starts but since not all buildings are joining, only a portion of the skyline is being looked at.

We spent Two weeks visiting family in Hong Kong on one evening we caught the star ferry to Kowloon and had lunch before taking in the light show from the shore line we were not disappointed even with it being incredibly busy there was still plenty of space to be able to enjoy the show

Ok - it's a light show on the harbour that's on every single night of the week so don't expect the grandeur of a New Years fireworks display and you will love it. Quick and fun, it lights up the harbour and is a complimentary way to spend 15mins or so..

Stars at 8pm and Avenue of Stars will get crowded due to the show. I don't really think it is an interesting show. Its music can barely be heard and the only noticeable lights are the couple of green lasers.

A nice short show for the kids to listen to music and watch the lights. We took the MTR from our hotel down to the harbour which is easy to access. It was raining but plenty of cover to watch the light show. Worth a visit

Get there by sunset and grab a spot and maybe a cup of coffee and enjoy the biggest light show in the world. With lovely music and incredible lights that light most of the buildings in HK island. Here is a tip.... Get on a dingy crossing the bay before the light show for an awesome view..... It's amazing!!!!

If in Hong Kong go to the Symphony of Lights, find a good space and watch this spectacular show of lights as they bounce of the skyscrapers. A MUST when there.

Words cannot describe how underwhelming this attraction is. All the buildings are lit up anyway and it is nearly impossible to tell which building is part of the show. The only saving grace are the large green lasers, which appeared for a grand total of 5 seconds in a 15 minute show. It may be the world's biggest light show... More

I had been really looking forward to watching this show, as I have seen and enjoyed the display in Singapore and had heard that the Hong Kong version included lasers from multiple buildings, so should be bigger and even better. I was disappointed though to be honest. The Hong Kong Skyline at night is wonderful, and worth heading across to... More
