A Symphony of Lights is the name of the impressive harbour light show, which takes place every night in Hong Kong. At 8pm, over 40 buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbour synchronise their lights and beam lasers in time with music. It’s a real spectacle to behold and we’ve never seen anything like it! Each building takes its turn at first, introduced by the audio on the speakers, before the full show demonstrates how good they all look together. There are 5 themes that are used during the shows. They are “awakening”, “energy”, “heritage”, “partnership and the finale is “celebration”.
It’s organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Commission and the shows have been running since 2004. You’ll need to be on the harbour walkways on either side of the harbour to hear the music and get the best view of the lights. The narration is in English on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and we think the best view is on the Avenue of Stars (show on the map below). To see the show from a boat in the harbour, check out prices for the Symphony of Lights Harbour Cruise or to truly sample the amazing Hong Kong skyline at night, consider taking the Harbour Night Cruise with Dinner in the Revolving Restaurant.
