It's nice to see the huge Hong Kong buildings at night, full of lights in front of the river. The best place to see it is at Victoria Harbour. In plus they play some music during... read more

From the name "A Symphony of Lights", I was expecting an impressive and organized array of light shows from the giants of Hong Kong. Instead, the display was a mess with each building trying to fight one another for the spotlight with cheesy elevator music in the background The Bank of China tower is doing one thing and the one...

Unfortunately I went to see the Symphony of Lights before reading any reviews. As for the world's largest permanent light and sound show (according to Guinness World Records) I've expected something magnificent! What I've experienced instead was a few dull lasers and some music. The skyline itself is amazing with buildings beautifully lit up, but if you want to avoid... More

The lighting show at 8 pm turned out to be a damp squib with 4-5 buildings getting into some oscillating laser lights. Much ado about nothing!

I had heard a lot about symphony of lights show in Hong Kong and went there with very high expectations. Though it was good to see huge buildings in lights it was not up to my expectations. It was very ordinary show

I had 2 nights in Hong Kong and had reserved my last night to make sure I could see the light show. We were staying in East TST, so had walked the promenade, but unfortunately the Avenue of Stars is closed for construction and it's quite a mess down there. It was pouring down rain so we decided to camp... More

This is a must in HK. Its a 3D light show with music that starts every evening at 8pm and last for about 13 minutes. We saw this from the viewing point in Tsim Tsa Tsui. There you really get to experience it... Well worth a visit...

It's nice to see the huge Hong Kong buildings at night, full of lights in front of the river. The best place to see it is at Victoria Harbour. In plus they play some music during 15 minutes that is synchronized with the lights of the buildings.

Very underwhelming after walking a long distance from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR. After seeing Singapore's light show we thought this would be on par but it was very far. Probably our fault for setting our expectations too high. Their show needs a big revision, especially if they have "a lot" of buildings participating anyway.
