Hong Kong is renowned for its bright city lights and vast cityscape. Victoria Harbour is lined with many different skyscrapers varying in shapes and sizes.
The Symphony of Lights show in Hong Kong has been named the 'World's Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show' by Guinness World Records. Over 44 skyscrapers are involved in the famous laser light and sound show that occurs daily at 8pm.
Photographers and visitors line up in masses along the waterfront to witness the 14-minute long show that certainly does not disappoint.
The show consists of five main themes:
Where to view the show:
The most obvious and heavily crowded place to view the show from is the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront next to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. I took a few shots from here but you will need to arrive at 6pm-6.30pm if you wish to set up a tripod because many other photographers will want to set up in this area too.
The best place to view the cityscape and light show is from the car park on the roof of the Harbour City shopping mall. Not many people use this spot for photos and you can guarantee that you will get a decent vantage point for the duration of the light show.
If you are visiting Hong Kong then you should definitely not miss out on this free light show where you can capture some stunning photographs.
