“Full of lights and colours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

It is a pleasure to have a long walk from Star Ferry to the end of Avenue of Stars enjoying the skyline and the great views of harbour. Symphony of Lights, the lights and laser show at 8.00 PM is a must watch.

“Unbeatable Sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I've always loved the Hong Kong skyline since my first visit many years ago! You have to view it from Tsim Sha Tsui by day and night, and view the skyscrapers and harbour from Victoria Peak too!
Don't forget to catch the nightly laser light show over the harbour - only lasts 15 mins with music, and adds another dimension to the sight!
I can't wait to see it again - make sure you have your camera on hand!!!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stayed at the Peninsula Hotel and were lucky enough to have access to a view of the Hong Kong Skyline from the Hotel's Pool Terrace. It was truly beautiful at night.

“must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

this skyline would have to be close to the New York skyline. We walk the esplanade nearly every night and have done so for the last 10 trip and we never get sick of that wonderful view.

“The skyline at night is fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Definitely worth an evening visit at 8PM to experience the laser light show from all the buildings. It is best viewed from the clock tower platform area on the Kowloon side of Victoria harbor near the Star Ferry terminal.
