It's always good to get down by the waters edge and look over to Hong Kong Island and see the lights, such a vibrant city 24/7.

Well came here with high expectations, what a let down. Waited over 45 minutes to get a good spot, 13 minutes of nothing. The show is basically a few green lasers that shine a few times. Do not waste your time seeing this, just go to see the buildings lit up at night, take some pictures then go elsewhere.

This is the very definition of a nonevent: you are standing right in front of it and we couldn’t tell if it had started… or if it had finished yet. If someone had told us that at 8pm some of the buildings on the Hong Kong Island side of the harbor would flash some lights, we probably would have watched... More

Perhaps I was expecting too much of this but it was a great disappointment, it just never really took off - a few lasers and lights on the buildings on the island side of the harbour. Apparently you can tune in to a radio frequency to hear the music that co-ordinates with the show, but I really can't see how... More

The view of Kong Kong from the Kowloon side is wonderful at night. The buildings are all lit up and animated. The light show however is simply a few lasers/lights that are barely visible. Enjoy the view and don't worry about the light show. It truly is not worth the effort unless you are there anyway. I rated this with... More

Same as other reviews; Hong Kong skyline is amazing from Kowloon. I recommend taking in the night view either way, I just wouldn't bother waiting especially for the 'light show'. I genuinely didn't really even notice it as the lights flash quite a lot normally, it's just slightly more arranged during the night show.

The light show was nothing special. There doesn't seem to be any spectacular design there between the building lights and the music. However, the skyline of Hong Kong at night is beautiful and a must see at any time of the night. There is really no need to wait for the light show to enjoy it.

We waited out in the cold for about an hour on the Kowloon side near the Star Ferry to have a good spot to see the light show. There seems to be some sort of story, but it is only in Chinese. We kept waiting, hoping there would be something more interesting in the show, but it just kept repeating... More

Booked ahead in anticipation of this symphony of laser lights show!! What a disappointment! Was a long trip and I couldn't wait for it to end! The skyline is beautiful but the show is a major let down!

Thank Kerrie T
