Symphony of Lights Tours

Every night at 8pm, Hong Kong puts on a free spectacular light show, highlighting the skyscrapers lining both sides of Victoria Harbour. Named by Guinness World Records as the largest permanent light and sound show in the world, the Symphony of Lights includes more than 40 of Hong Kong’s key buildings in its spectacle of laser beams, colored lights, searchlights, and synchronized music.

The Basics
A trip to Hong Kong wouldn’t be complete without a viewing of this free nighttime spectacle. Since the show is staged on both the Hong Kong Island and Kowloon sides, the best vantage point for an uninterrupted view is from the waters of Victoria Harbour. A variety of dinner cruises and sightseeing tours—including the Star Ferry—facilitate the experience. For those who’d prefer to stay on land, you can watch the nightly spectacle from either the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade in Kowloon or the Wan Chai waterfront on Hong Kong Island. On clear nights, you can see some of the show from Victoria Peak.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Hong Kong Symphony of Lights is a free, must-see show for all first-time visitors.
  • Get the best views by booking a Hong Kong harbor cruise.
  • Combine an evening cruise with an afternoon sightseeing tour or hop-on hop-off bus tour.

How to Get There
The Symphony of Lights is visible from both the Tsim Sha Tsui and Central waterfronts, as well as from Victoria Harbour.

When to Get There
The show is staged nightly at 8pm, but it’s a good idea to arrive a few minutes early to stake out a comfortable spot. The lights are most impressive on a clear night, as fog and rain can obstruct the view.

Live Narration of the Show
Get a deeper insight into the Symphony of Lights by listing to live narration in English, available outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui and outside Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai during Monday, Wednesday, and Friday shows.
