Symphony Of Lights

The Symphony Of Lights is a light show put on in Victoria Harbour by a synchronized display of building lighting plus sometimes lasers and occasionally even fireworks.

Starting at 8pm every night of the year the exact details tend to vary from season to season and over the years and you'll see at least 10 minutes of interesting flashing lights from the many participating buildings on both side of the harbour.

There is synchronized music which you can hear on the radio or over the telephone.

It isn't worth making a special trip to see but if you happen by chance to have a view of the harbour say at around 7:50 at night I'd say hang around and wait till 8 to see the show.

A great place to see it is from the deck of a ferry in the harbour, so if you manage to get on a Star Ferry at just the right time that would be great.  Or failing that anywhere on the Avenue of the Stars on Kowloon side or slight less so near the Piers on Hong Kong side would certainly do.

On the down side of course this just really emphasizes the massive light pollution that Hong Kong suffers.  Views of the stars are not something you are going to see from pretty much anywhere in the city.
