Hong Kong: A Symphony of Lights

A Symphony of Lights is a nightly light and laser multimedia show in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour, which is participated by more than 40 buildings on both sides of the harbor.  This is free and starts at 8:00 PM.

From the Ocean Park, my friend and I hurried to Tsim Sha Tsui to catch the show.  We arrived about 5 minutes before the show started.  Lucky us, but then this involved some serious running.

Before the show started, I took these photos.  Too bad it was a cloudy (or was it foggy?) night.

And then the Symphony of Lights show was on.

Pardon my photos since the place was full of people and since we arrived late, I did not have a good vantage point (there were even fathers with children perched on their shoulders so I had to tiptoe to get better shots).

The show lasted for about ten minutes, but it was not really awe-inspiring.  For something dubbed by the Guinness World Records as the world’s largest permanent light and sound show, it was disappointing.  I just saw flashing lights from buildings, and that’s it.

Perhaps I had such high expectations because I was so charmed by Bellagio’s Dancing Waters in Las Vegas last year.

Here’s my last set of photos of my view of the harbor taken before we left.

Note that when Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No.3 or above or the Red/Black Rainstorm Warning Signal is issued at or after 3 PM on the day, the show will be suspended.
