Everyone before we went to Hong Kong mentioned that we must see the Laser Show and better still go to a restaurant in Kowloon to get a great view from hight up. We ended up on the promenade just along from the walk of stars to watch this show. Well you can't really call it a show. It was a... More

If you dont see this in Hong Kong then you have missed something big time, a beautiful laser light show which takes place every night from the Peak and from the harbour covering the citys Skyline!

All the overly positive words written about the symphony of lights made one expect a LOT from this. So when we were standing at "The walk of stars" at 20.00 that evening, our (overly high) expectations where crushed. Was this the all the fuss was about?! Yes, it is beautiful because the Hong Kong Skyline is indeed beautiful, but there... More

We were not sure what to expect of this laser light show but we were glad we did not make a special trip out to see it. It kicks off at 8.00pm each night and results in a handful of building rooftops being lit up and some projecting lasers. It is actually far better to simply have a view of... More

We saw this light show on a very clear night but it wasn't that good. You may not even notice it if there is no announcement or music. We watched it from the viewing deck on the TST waterfront. It was a display of some lasers and lights on buildings, but hard to figure out any rhythm. There is so... More

Just go to the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade at night and you shouldn't miss this. If you missed then it okay because you won't notice the show anyway. It's nahh and dahh for us. Just take nice photos of Hong Kong skyline. Otherwise don't bother the unsynchronized lights and sounds.

Simply said in two words, Don't bother! Over rated and you will not miss anything if you don't get to see the show. The lights of the city are magical and the show does nothing spectacular to enhance them.

When I saw this during my first trip to Hong Kong back in January 2010, I felt like it was one of the highlights of my trip. When I went back last January 2015, it felt very average. Living in a tropical country, I loved the fact that the temperature was cold while I was watching it but other than... More

Amazing experience for the first time visitor of Hong Kong. It's billed as the "world's largest permanent light and sound show". It starts every day at 8 pm to the second and the best views are from the "Avenue of Stars" along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. It is about 13-15 minutes long and narration is provided in English, Mandarin... More

We were very fortunate to have a Harbor View room for both our stays in Hong Kong. We also took the Star Ferry "A SYMPHONY OF LIGHTS HARBOUR CRUISE" and we highly recommend it. The views are amazing.
