Celebrating Hong Kong
The Symphony of Lights is hosted by the Hong Kong Tourism Board with participation by the respective buildings. The choreography lasts for about 13 minutes and weaves a thematic journey that begins with Awakening and ends with Celebration. An intermediate theme termed Heritage bathes the buildings in the auspicious colors of red and gold, complimented by traditional music to celebrate Hong Kong’s rich cultural heritage.
The Symphony of Lights was originally designed to showcase the famed Victoria Harbor. Therefore, the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade on the Kowloon Peninsula and the waterfront around the Golden Bauhinia Square on Wan Chai are the best places to catch the show. However, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and the Star Ferry offer unmatched views too, that is, if you can precisely time your trip.
- English narration is presented on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. However, if you wish to hear the same on other nights, tune into FM 103.4 MHz on your mobile phone.
- The above tip holds true if you’re watching the show from vantage points far from the promenade.
