    Good Marketing & overrated, I think this is not the best show that I ever saw. The best place to watch the show is at the rooftop near The Former Kowloon Train Clock Monument #Traveling #HongKong

    Everyday at 8pm a big light show animates all the skyscrapers along the harbor. Lasers and cheesy music included. Definitely worth a stroll along the Victoria Harbour, Kowloon side.

    Whilst the backdrop is great, the light show itself is underwhelming. I would recommend the one at Marina Bay, Singapore over this.

    Show is fun, but not worth getting there super early to get the best possible viewing spot.

    Watch the lightshow at night from the Avenue of the Stars. Make sure to get there early to get a good spot on the harbor.

    Nightly show at 8 p.m. on good weather. Better view of the building lights from Kowloon side. Come early to the viewing deck of the HK Cultural Centre.

    Though that the show would be much better than this , didn't wow me much . But it's acceptable to visit . But the city view it self is amazing .

    Bit lame really. The skyline itself is way more impressive. Come anytime after sunset for a stunning view. The show itself is pretty lame

    Doesnt worth seeing at all!! It is just definitely not what you expect to see. Just check out the evening view (amazing) from this spot, but dont wait for the show

    This skyline needs no adornment. Impressive only for the coordination that must have been required between the various building owners. Tacky classical music.

    Corny video game music in the background while some buildings flash lasers into the sky and blind pilots into aggression. Don't make your plans around this.

    Well nothing special. Just a few lights on the Hong Kong buildings. Sunset 6pm on September, much more wow than the show.

    The hype far exceeds the reality. Don't bother. Just go to Kowloon Public Pier anytime after sunset (avoid 7.30-8.30) and snap away without the maddening crowds. Your photos will be just as good.

    We got a good seat facing the harbour at Ozone inside Ritz Calton. Waited 2hrs only to get a lacklustre show.

    Stay close to the open area of the Cultural Center to have the best view of both sides of the harbour

    Don't bother. Night view of the skyline is spectacular from both sides anytime after sunset. But the light show isn't even worth the name.

    We were at the Mandarin version so we might have missed the point, but it's quite boring. It's happening on both sides!

    it is one big joke of a show!!. No symphony to hear with all around you are talking or more like screaming at each other... AND what or which lights?... spend your time somewhere else...

    Starts 8pm. Grab a seat on Kowloon side for best view.

    The further away from the Star Ferry the smaller the crowds.

    It's completely shit. You can hardly tell the difference between the 'show' and the buildings just being lit up at night.

    Okay but nothing special - most interesting section between BoA Merrrill Lynch and HSBC. Music is nice but commentary is mostly advertorial.

    Overrated experience, if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, by all means stay for a few minutes, but don't travel there especially to see it.

    Tacky light show, was told there were fireworks but there were not the day I visited. Ok if you're in the area anyway but not worth a special trip.

    The one I saw 4 years ago was awesone. But this one in May 2012 is apparently a boring overrated show of light blinkings.

    Pretty sure the lights from across the bay and sound at TST don't sync up...
