The skyline at night was sure beautiful enough without symphony of light. At the beginning, the show sounds exciting. However, not thing to be excited about it. There were just some lighting on a group of buildings to match the rhythm of the music and some lasers thing, but I do not think they did well on that. It could... More

Waited over an hour at the harbour for this event. Announcements were being made every 15 mins as a countdown to the show. The crowd builds up a lot just before the start, and pushy. The skyline, mountains in the distance, and a bright, red Junk sailing past was in itself a lovely view. As the sky darkened the colorful... More

Lots of people seem to be disappointed because they have seen pictures of Chinese New Year fireworks over the skyline and expect that happens every day. For a free light show every evening with narration in English / Mandarin / Cantonese (depending on day of the week) and original music, this is a pretty nice thing to witness (my son... More

The view is amazing but that is all. We got there one hour before the start. Lost hour. When it started I was looking around and waiting for something else. I was talking to myself - what is going on? I expected much more.

the hong kong is beautiful on its own at night, the addition of the symphony of lights does not add anything to its already beautiful skyline. Trying to get to the avenue of stars at 8 pm and battling with the crowd to get a good position is just not worth it. Better just view the spectacular hong kong skyline... More

I rarely write poor reviews but honestly, the Symphony of Lights is overrated. This was our second time visiting HK, and just like the first time, we stayed for 10mins then buggered off to do something else. The only reason why we went the second time to see it because I had desperately hoped it had improved somehow from when... More

The skyline is great and we were so excited to see this but so terribly disappointed. We got a junk to the bay but really you can't really tell when the show starts or finishes. Under whelmed.

We went to see the Guinness award winner show with high expectations. This was a total waste of time! Am sure you have better things to do while in Hong Kong. Do not stop for this show or even bother to put it on your itinerary of things to do. Better to YouTube it and watch it online than waste... More

The Symphony of Lights is a laser light 'show' along the skyline of Hong Kong Island. I use the word show a bit loosely because I'll be honest in that the show is not all that incredibly impressive... however, the skyline itself IS impressive. We hoofed it over here after our plane actually managed to arrive EARLY and after basically... More

I thought with all the hype and it happening at a certain time in the evening that It would be a spectacular lights show. It's ok, I personally expected more lights and variations but was disappointed expecting it to get bigger (saving the best till last) if you are in the area I would recommend a look.
