The facades of skyscrapers are decked out in lights that, at the flick of a switch, glow in a myriad of colours depicting Hong Kong’s colourful and bustling atmosphere.

“Pathetic and verging on embarrassing!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

So, hundreds of people stand around an hour beforehand trying to get a good vantage point in preparation for the 'grand show'. It consists of the usual night time sky line plus 3 lasers. Nothing happens of any interest. How the tourist board can promote this as an attraction is beyond me. Turn up at 7:59 so you don't waste any time on this. Hong Kong has so much more to offer!

“Wouldn't go out of your way to see.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

If your not in the area of The Avenue of Stars, I wouldn't rush to see it for 8 o'clock. Was good but I wouldn't rave about it. It's worth going down to that side to see the skyscrapers lit up in the night though.

“I'm sure its impressive somehow”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

From the riverside its nigh on impossible to see all of the show and so its a little dull. Im sure its impressive as a whole but to watch its a little dull. You still have to go though.

“Not worth a special visit to see.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I watched the light show at the end of our big bus night tour. The show was very disappointing and from our vantage point we could not even hear the music.

The smog was high that night that may have affected the show but for us it was OK but nothing special to write home about.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I have seen these lazors many times now and to be honest after a while they are just lights. However, the first time that you see these lights you will be amazed. Hongkong Island gives a great backdrop for the show. Because they are on everynight you do not need to get there early to get a good view!!
