Spectacular skyline not really enhanced by Symphony of Lights Show

The Hong Kong skyline is very impressive when viewed from Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. The buildings are lit up after dark and create a beautiful reflection on the harbour. This sight can be seen anytime and is not greatly enhanced by the Symphony of Lights Show. I would definitely recommend seeing the skyline after dark but no real need to... More

In the 1980s, a few lasers on the tops of skyscrapers would have been impressive. But it's 2016, all sorts of amazing projections are possible to create an amazing show, which this isn't. And the music is no symphony. It's like something from a Nintendo game. If you must go see this, just stand for free on the promenade in... More

We had heard such great things, the reality was such a let down. We got there early to get a good spot by the clock tower to watch. When it started we thought that something must have gone wrong, but apparently not. The lasers are weak and the lights on the buildings are stronger but also pretty unimpressive. Really not... More

The light show is a bit dull. I saw it a few years back and was excited to see it again. But it was dull and distant and not a patch on previous years. I hope 2017 will be better than 2016. It needs more rousing music and more lights and the app saps the battery.

This is a beautiful light and sound show held around Victoria Harbour in the evening. Several buildings on the waterfront participate in the light show which is the world's biggest permanent light and sound show. The show lasts around fifteen minutes and is best viewed from the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade or from a boat in the Victoria Harbour. Several... More

An outstanding 20 minute light show which includes the skylines of Hong Kong and Kowloon. It is set to music. We watched from a harbor cruise ship. This can be enjoyed by all from the shore or on a boat. To get the full 360 degree view, a boat is the best option.

Was an amazing display of lights on the buildings. Although I didn't enjoy Hong Kong as a destination, this attraction was the highlight of our trip.
