A Symphony of Lights

Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor has probably one of the most iconic skylines in the world.  It becomes even more vibrant come 8 pm every night, as buildings light up for A Symphony of Lights.  Launched in 2004, the light and sound show is named the “World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show” by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The show lasts for over 10 minutes and according to the Hong Kong Tourism board site, it can be seen from three vantage points:

  • Tsim Sha Tsui promenade outside Hong Kong cultural center (MTR East Tsim Sha Tsui Station, Exit L6)
  • Golden Bauhinia Square (MTR Wan Chai Station, Exit A5); and
  • from the Harbor cruise

There’s music and live narration accompanying the light show.  The narration part is alternately done in English (MWF) Mandarin (TThSa) and Cantonese (Sun).

I caught the show from Tsim Sha Tsui promenade during my 2014 trip, and here are some choice shots:
