We arrived with our 3 and 5 year olds a few hours before, had dinner and did the star ferry. Area was busy but flowed well no problems. Light show itself was a disappointment. Just some green lasers and white spotlights. Very poor. Advise only visit if on area.

The daytime skyline itself is fantastic with far more skyscrapers than New York in a very restricted area but the light show left me somewhat underwhelmed. I expected something 'out of this world' but was greeted with numerous brightly lit buildings with occasional lasers and uninspiring background music. Not what I expected. Since returning, looking at my photographs has improved... More

This was well worth seeing as the lights come from the tall buildings we were on a Chinese junk boat so was able to move around to watch the show

We thought this was wonderful, a stunning celebration of the many buildings that make up the waterfront and the beauty of the harbour. Just 15 minutes, enough to keep all ages enchanted. Some people were underwhelmed - they were expecting a huge firework tyoe show but we were without expectation so in no way were we disappointed!

This show has every day during 8-8.15 pm.. I think it is the best way to watch it from the Tsim sa Tsui Harbor, cos you can hear the music to make the show more attractive..In front of the Intercontinental Hotel is suitable... no any charge..chilling and relaxing ..

The light show was not as good as my expectations were hoping. The beginning showcased all the different buildings but the sound was so quiet we could hardly hear the narrators- which is probably the biggest negative. The lightshow itself was good but such a let down after looking at pictures online. There were only a few lasers on 2/3... More

The symphony of Light is built up as a world class experience - well it isn't. It's an average light show from a few hotel roofs to music. It just never seems to really get going and never really fulfills its full potential. We watched it one evening, but never bothered again. As others have said, the overall skyline at... More

I had good hopes for this so-called 'symphony of lights'. However, on the night, it was very poor with very few laser lights showing and the music hardly discernable and certainly not in tune with the few lights that were showing. Overall, the only good point of it is the general view of the city scape at night with the... More

The view was really wonderful. We waited for the Symphony of Lights because we've heard it was one of the best in Asia, but really the music was barely audible and the buildings that lighted weren't very many to create the grand effect. It was good that we were able to see it, so we know better than to wait... More
