My husband and I waited for this event, and were not even sure if it had begun or when it ended! I have not idea why people even bother to do this. The neon on the buildings across the bay change colors a little bit and there are sever beacons that cross the sky, but it is really stupid and... More

This was a booked tour via 'Splendid' which although there may have been cheaper ways to see the lights, was convenient as it was organised as part of our itinerary to make sure we got the best out of our relatively short time in Hong Kong.

I had seen a number of photographs online before my trip and was really keen to make sure I saw the light show. It was very underwhelming and i was definitely expecting a lot more. If you are in the area is probably worth taking the time to watch, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

I heard about the light show, it was nice, I was expecting more. If you miss it don't feel bad , but if you are there stop and enjoy

We were waiting begin the Symphony behind the Hong Kong cultural center and we could take many beautiful picture from the Island, the Old Fashioned Sailboat and the clock tower. The Symphony is not good at all, but it will not be a waste of time if you go there.

Was expecting something spectacular, but I was disappointed, at least it was FREE. I didn't wait for the end. Still, seeing the buildings all lit up about the harbour was pretty good, so that was something, and I enjoyed the Star ferry trip over and back to Hong Kong.

I've now seen the Symphony of Lights from Kowloon a 1/2 dozen times and I must say it's now seeming like it could be SO much more impressive. While no other city, to my knowledge, does something like this, this spectacle of light from primarily Central buildings could be synchronized better and make more visual impact. The lasers on the...

The show was so much more than I expected. I was told it was kinda blah and not worth to see. But we went anyway and loved it. Well the actual "show" and the music weren't so spectacular but the view!!!! Oh the view! You really don't wanna miss that!!! I just could have stood there hours and hours!

I don't recall if / when the last time I rated an attraction terrible with TripAdvisor. Of all the incredible experiences in Hong Kong, all the things I looked forward to....the Symphony of Lights was the BIGGEST BUST. The Hong Kong skyline is beautiful, breathtaking, and the Symphony of Lights was like opening a stale beer on Maho Beach. I... More

The skyline of Hong Kong Victoria Harbor at night is worth a million dollar even without the Symphony of Lights Show. I agree with the other reviewers that the light show is just so weak that people with high expectation went disappointed. I truly believe that they can do a better job than this. Don't pay for the show, it's... More
