Nathan Hotel to Star Ferry:

--Walk: 20 minutes

--MTR: one stop only from Jordan to Tsim Sha Tsui on Tsuen Wan Line, then walk another 5 minutes, not worth the effort overall

--Bus: There are several buses bound for Star Ferry so just catch any of them. Takes about 5 minutes. Have an Octopus card for the fare

Watching Symphony of Lights:

The best location is Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, anywhere between Cultural Centre to the back of Intercontinental Hotel. Star Ferry ride is highly recommended but it might be difficult to catch the exact boat while the light show is happening.

Hi ks

Definitely recommend avenue of stars instead of ferry unless you are going for the tour type of cruise during the light symphony. However please go earlier to get good spots as the place is crowded for the show

I'd recommend the lobby bar at the Intercontinental hotel. We arrived just before the lights started and were able to get a table close to the window. Drink prices were a little steep, but we managed to make two beers last for the whole show. Plus there was some live music playing, so a nice all-around experience.

I agree with Sammyfloyd that the TST Promenade is a great spot.

If you can arrive there early enough, there is an upper deck viewing area complete with concrete benches that offers excellent views.

Have fun, and enjoy the show.
