The Hong Kong skyline is unique, day or night. but it is unique in every city. The light show at 8:00 pm was not worth waiting for. It is more like letting your 6 year old put up Christmas lights. Watch 10 seconds as you...More

The whole harbour is flooded with light. To be enjoyed most from the water, recommend doing a harbour cruise during the show.

The perfect way to see the city from above. A great viewing area bursting with info and you can spend time relaxing over local beer watching the ants below!.

Attended the light show at 8 pm. It was good because it was during the Christmas season. Lights in the building with Christmas decors added to the light show which made it more pretty. The building and the area looked lively.

WOW you have to see this especially at night. We were there during Christmas holidays so a lot of the building were decorated and had special lights working.

I'm an avid traveller and there aren't many cities that offer such a beautiful harbor nightscape. I recommend viewing from Lugard Rd (The Peak) or Braemar Hill to get the best angle from above.

You can enjoy the views from either side of the harbour but better still is when you cross the ocean using the ferry. Really beautiful in a clear day. By far one of the best we have seen compared to USA, UK, Canada, Australia.

Hong Kong skyline is comparable to Manhattan skyline. Its architecture, neon lights, colours & iconic design grant Hong Kong "Pearl of the East"

Went to the Symphony of Lights in early December 2018 with my colleagues. Saw the lights show from the harbor. Went there around 19.30; the place was already packed with crowds waiting for the show too. Then around 20.00 the lights show starts; it's a...More

Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighborhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

This report is a little late, we visited Hong Kong first time aboard the Mariner of the Seas. Sailing into Hong Kong was spectacular, lights reflecting off the water it was really beautiful. The Mariner received a warm welcome and most passengers disembarked. We took a shuttle bus into a shopping mall and from there a taxi to the ladies market. We enjoyed a good couple of hours wandering around before returning to the ship. We were able to enjoy a full day in Hong Kong before our cruise...More

I will trip to HKG (kowloon harbour) from Macau (outer). Depart at around 9.30/11 and go back home at 22.30 Since my mom asks it spontaneously so I'm quite confused and dont have enough time to do some researches for everything. We want to go/see: 1. Victoria Park 2. Watching Hong Kong skyline from tsim sha shui promenade at 8.00 p.m. But I dont have any other ideas/places to go for the rest. ps. I still havent bought ticket since it's not clear enough. Maybe you have some...More

When you say go back home at 22:30, do you mean going back to Macau? Or are you taking a flight out? Victoria Park (in Causeway Bay) is not a top priority sight for most tourists. Victoria Peak is. If you want to go to the Peak first, you should take the ferry to Sheung Wan (Macau Ferry Terminal) instead of Tsim Sha Tsui (China Ferry Terminal). From Sheung Wan, you can walk to Pier No. 5 and catch bus 15 to the Peak. For ideas of what to see, check out the Must See/Do FAQ. Or visit...More

Hi Senna, Enjoyed your report, you seem to have really enjoyed your stay. We will be visiting Hong Kong in five weeks and I'm just starting to put an agenda together of what to do and what not to miss! Will take on board some of your suggestions We are staying at the Island Shangri-La which I'm looking forward too (maybe a little too near the shops!). Quite liked the look and sound of Aqua, but you thought it not that special. Just a question about dress of an evening, would you say...More
