Place: Hong Kong China - Victoria Harbour

Month Viewed: 19 | Total Viewed: 2622 |

The Hong Kong skyline, on a clear night, is brilliant, so let's not overlook that. The idea to set a light show against such a backdrop is fantastic.

Take the MTR (subway / underground train) to Tsim Sha Tsui station (red line - first on the mainlaind - closest to the water heading to Hong Kong Island). Exit "C1" or "E"

You can choose to go on a cruise on Victoria Harbor to watch the Symphony of Lights using the Star Ferry.  It’s about an hour cruise that hits all the main ferry piers. After dark, when the skyline is lit, about 30 of the buildings do a light/laser show each night (8PM). There were buildings on both sides of the harbour to watch and it was quite a sight. If you aren’t taking a cruise, plan to be on the Kowloon side as the buildings on the HK side are much more impressive to watch across the Harbour.

Also, it is very difficult to take photos due to movement of the boat and low light. If the photos are what you are after, you might want to find a viewing spot on the Kowloon Side of Victoria Harbor or in front of the Convention Center on the HK side... Once again, the big banks – Bank of China, HSBC, Standard Charter and AIG had some of the best lighting effects. Apparently the show is better on weekends, and sometimes they add fireworks --- but the regular show is good too. Show lasts about 10 minutes or so.
