Symphony of Lights, Hong Kong

I was writing a guest post on a blog about free things to see and do in Hong Kong and I realised I had never showed you, my loyal fans (all 3 of you) the spectacle known as 'The Symphony of Lights'. It's touted to be the "World's Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show" by the Guinness Book of Records.

It's basically a massive musical laser light show from the tallest buildings in Hong Kong. It takes place every night at 8pm and it's FREE which is always a bonus, especially in these dark times of recession. The basic laser show is impressive in itself but on special occasions they add fireworks to the mix which ups the 'WOW' factor by at least ten times. Check the YouTube video below.




How to get there: MTR East Tsim Sha Tsui Station Exit J, and follow the signs to the Avenue of Stars and Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront.

I saw two free light shows in Canada last week - it's obviously the way to go these days :-)

I have yet to see this. I feel ashamed.

@ Conortje: it must be all the rage - did you actually see the light though?

@ Stevo: Interferes with happy hour?

Fantastic, almost as good as fireworks.

Oops, clearly I commented before watching the YouTube clip!

Wow, I don't recall that when I was there in 2000. How long has it been going?

Very spectacular. I hope the Supreme Being wasn't looking in that direction, he wouldn't have any eyes left.

@ Thrifty: It started in Dec 2005

@ Nick: Yeah - I get nervous about the effects of lasers but you're right the poor aliens are being blinded left right and centre
