On many previous visits I saw this light show from tall floors of various hotels restaurants (on HK Island and also in Kowloon). I was not impressed but wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt as folks tell me that it is best seen from the Tsim Tsai Sui broadwalk. So this time, I went down to the... More

The Symphony of Lights is simply outdated and very poorly designed light show. It doesn't offer anything but a big disappointment. To be honest, the Symphony of Lights is extremely embarrassing for other otherwise dynamic and modern city of Hong kong. I do not recommend - waste of time!

Then go to "Symphony of Lights" The "show" started about ten minutes late and ended after fifteen minutes. It was impossible to be sure because, apart from a few green laser flashes, there was much better lighting from the surrounding buildings' normal lighting before, during and after the "symphony." If you expect to see a decent light show, take your... More

You should take a boat trip across Hong Kong harbour. You can do this on the ferry across to/from Kowloon. It's fun. A formal boat trip at night to watch the Symphony of Lights show is even better. But that's because the skyline is wonderful, and it's best viewed from the water at night. But - the symphony of lights... More

Had great expectations, but disappointed exremely dearly. Symphony of lights is very poorly designed and executed "show"... to be frank, it's just a big joke. If you are planning to visit Hong Kong, don't waste you your precious time and try to catch this event even though its free.

Well, we were disappointed we missed it on our first night (we went to temple street instead) however I was more disappointed when we stood in the rain to see this "masterpiece" The skyline is definitely worth the view but tbh we never noticed if the show had started or not as the skyline is always lit up well. We... More

It's a great attraction the first time you go to HK. But after that it's just normal because the routine doesn't change unfortunately. Nor does the music. They should really make a change now and then to keep it from getting stale. But be sure to see it atleast once.

I think what disappointed me about this boring waste of time is how good it could be if they did it properly - the HK skyline is jammed full of colourful lights, if the show had even half of them flashing on and off in sync with music it would look amazing. What you actually get is a couple of... More
