Every night at 8pm, Hong Kong puts on a spectacular light show, highlighting the skyscrapers lining both sides of Victoria Harbour. The world’s largest light show, A Symphony of Lights, is free.
More than 40 skyscrapers shoot laser beams, colored lights and searchlights from their rooftops, in a choreographed sequence synchronized to music and a narration.
The best place to view the extravaganza is from a boat cruise or ferry ride on Victoria Harbour.
Nice way to get the most out of the Symphony of Lights as well as the harbor!!! Highly recommended for everyone, especially on their first night in Hong Kong!!!

Good to view from Felix at the top of The Peninsula with a cold drink in your hand, worthwhile for older kids too. From 8pm for 15 minutes
A very good view of the symphony of lights plus a good harbor cruise.
On land, head to the Avenue of Stars waterfront at Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, so you can see the buildings on Hong Kong Island light up.
If you’re on Hong Kong Island and want to look at Kowloon, head to the Wan Chai waterfront.
