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 contains a diverse range of attractions for the entire family. Whether taking a walk in Kowloon Park, exploring museums, going shopping or grabbing a bite to eat – Tsim Sha Tsui has something for everyone.

Worth doing once!
Feb 2020
I have been to this now three times over the past 10 years.

Once in the summer, where it was overcrowded and you had difficulties in looking over the spectators.

Once in the winter, where it was too overcrowded and you needed to get to the viewing position a couple of hours ahead.

Today, due to the Coronavirus, the promenade was EMPTY. It felt like the show was just for me. It was pretty good. I think the show was abbreviated because it ended in 9 minutes. Usually it is longer.

I will never go to see this ever again but I am happy that I saw it. It is worth seeing once in our life.

For Fans of Super-Tall Skyscrapers

A remarkable show that costs nothing but 10 minutes of your time. It goes off like clockwork at 8PM each evening. The best place to view is along the Avenue of Stars on the Kowloon side of Victoria Harbour. We also paid about $25US to go to the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre (Sky100) to watch, but I would not recommend this since it was free and better from the Avenue of Stars.

Worth the wait!

I was only in Hong Kong for a layover and had maybe 8 hours in the city, but it was definitely worth it to take the ferry across and wait to see the light show. The scale is ridiculous and it's a cool experience to see an entire waterfront of a massive city doing a music integrated light show. Unique and a must do if you have the chance!

You have not seen Hong Kong if you have not seen the Symphony Lights. Best free show in Hong Kong. Experience of a lifetime.

10 minutes of choreography with 65 buildings
Nov 2019
If you are in the area 20 minutes a head of time, find a seat on the waterfront nearest the clock tower. The show is only 10 minutes long but it is pretty impressive as to what technology can do. The light show is choreographed with 65 of the buildings on either side of the harbor. No matter where you sit you will probably only see part of it.

What an incredible let down!!
Dec 2019
This had been a bucket list item I had been meaning to do for years. But WOW was it ever underwhelming.

The show consists of green lasers on top of six buildings, and flashing white spots on top of three others. The rest of the skyline stays as is. It’s more of a fart in a mitten than a symphony.

Not a must do

A free 10 minute light show that starts at 8pm every night.Best spot to view it is the Avenue of Stars although you can also view it while taking a harbour cruise or Star ferry

Yawn. Don't rush through dinner to see this show.
Dec 2019
Calling this a spectacle is ridiculous. Firstly, the lit up skyline of HK is beautiful on it's own. The "symphony" is a bit of a sleeper with a few lights and uninspiring music. If you are in the area, take it in, but don't rearrange your plans - just go for the skyline.

This has a lot of potential. If you don't get out much, maybe you'll be more captivated. I gave an 'average' rating because the skyline is beautiful on it's own....the symphony is poor.

Underwhelming
Mar 2019
I found the 10 minute Symphony of Lights to have uninspiring music paired with an unexciting light show. Just some flashing lights and images on top of skyscrapers across Victoria Harbour. It was extremely crowded along Avenue of Stars where we viewed it from. Get there earlier if you want to stand near the front.
This was unspectacular, but for a free show why not give it a go while you are there.
