We viewed the show twice, once from Felix, and the better of the 2 from the The Eyebar in i square. Best seen in the open. I've seen more spectacular light shows but worth seeing none the less.

Our last night's plan was to watch the lights. We were exhausted but I made the kids walk the 20 mins walk to get there. There were a lot of people gathering around and it was a beautiful night. Then the light show started and...More

It didn't live up to the hype for me. I thought the building lightings were going to dance in sequence with music(from what I heard) but that didn't really happen. There was no music and it was lights just waving around. The building backdrop was...More

People go with high expectation but get disappointed later on as it is just ok show which is free as well. Since in Hong Kong do include it in your attraction list it just takes 15-20min.

Even after reading many reviews which had mentioned that the concept has become outdated, we felt our visit to Hong Kong would be incomplete without watching the symphony of lights. But it was aware of time. Had to wait for almost 30 mins to find...More

I was expecting more as per the magnitude of the Hong Kong city. If you are around and want to watch it, it is ok. Just go to one of the free spots to watch it and enjoy few minutes of lights and not so...More

Don’t get me wrong, Victoria Bay is beautiful at night— BUT you can get the view at most rooftop restaurants in Kowloon. Don’t waste money on a night cruise to see symphony of the lights. Absolutely not worth the money or time. They position the...More

Avenue of the Star was closed for maintenance activity. Symphony of lights happened in just 5 minutes and only a few buildings participated. I wasn't able to capture real good photos.

We also have seen this from the waterfront and I recommend you do it while walking and discovering the city.

I am travelling and do not have my Man Mo pictures with me. It is worth taking a look. Hollywood Road is fairly long and is close to Soho and Lan Kwai Fong areas. Personally, I would not go there especially, but combine it... More
