Having been to Hong Kong on a number of occasions previously, we have seen the lights show a number of times and I have to say it has gone downhill in recent years!! It's ok if... read more

I wouldn't make it a point to see this in Hong Kong. The skyline is beautiful by itself and a few random laser pointers and jerky lights (that does not really match the music) adds nothing to the experience. At least its free. But my advice would be to not plan too much on seeing this. I wouldn't go again.

Hong Kong skyline itself is fantastic to take in, it doesn't need an apathetic light show. We hesitated to go reading reviews & thought we'd make up our own minds. Well I wished we had gone to a nice dinner instead.

We arrived 45 minutes early to get a good spot and even then I had a person constantly leaning on me for about an hour. The show started at 8 but I wouldn't have known if they didn't have music which may I add sounded like it was from top of the pops in the 1500. The show was just... More

We arrived 45 minutes early to get a good position to see the show. The show started and all it was a few lights not even in time with the odd music they played. The best part was the Hong Kong skyline at night which I would recommend you looking at.

The Hong Kong sky line is a must see. But the symphony of lights is really nothing special. You really don't notice any difference whatsoever with the lights off the buildings. I have been on 5 different occasions and IMHO is simply best to just watch from Tsim ta Tsui. Cheaper and a lot more convenient.

My partner and I booked the Symphony of Lights Dinner Cruise from Victoria Harbour. The Symphony of lights show itself was nothing to write home about but the cruise was fantastic!! The hall was set out with round tables and chairs before a dance floor with a live band playing. Dinner was an all you can eat buffet, with a... More

It's nice, but way too crowded. You will need to arrive at least 30 min in advance to save a good spot. Not so much fun on a hazy day. You should sort of do this, but don't expect too much. I was a little underwhelmed.

I didn't believe the comments I had seen on here before I went as they seemed harsh and a sharp contrast to the guidebooks and amazing picture online. HOWEVER, it was awful and I agree with what other people have said reference the disappointment. We got there early and with the amount of people in the crowd we thought we... More

This was really a let down. If you want to pay $200 for a choppy boat ride with some tea cookies then go for it. The symphony of lights was 15 minutes of music and the buildings lighting up. Don't bother. But DO pay $4.50 to ride the ferry across the harbor at night, it's pretty.
