Have you heard of the Symphony of Lights? If you haven’t, you should. It’s one of the tourist wonders of the world.
The Hong Kong Symphony of Lights is a light and sound show that’s held on Victoria Harbour every night at 8pm. It’s only not held when there are Typhoon warnings, Rainstorm warnings or special events.
Pshaw, you say – it’s just a light and sound show. So what? I’ll tell you what: it’s a light and sound show that involves buildings. Yes, the buildings that line the harbour, both sides of it, are involved in this choreographed display of light and sound.
Since it involved both sides of the harbour, you can technically view the Symphony of Lights from either Hong Kong island or Kowloon. In practice though, the view is best from Kowloon, Tsim Sha Tsui, to be exact.
It’s a light AND sound show, so turn up your speakers and watch Hong Kong island light up in a spectacular display of choreography across the horizon! Well, for 15 seconds anyway.
