The Symphony of Lights is a must visit free attraction that involves more than 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbor (buildings on Kowloon as well as Hong Kong Island). The tallest building in Hong Kong, the Two International Finance Centre, at 415 m (1,360 ft) also plays a role in this light show. According to the Guinness book of world records, it is the world’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show”. There are excellent views from the waterfront near the Golden Bauhinia Square. Take MTR Wan Chai Station Exit A5 and for the most part walk under a covered walkway that leads from the huge convention center. This walkway is well signed and it will take about 15-20 minutes from exiting the metro stop to reaching the waterfront.
The Symphony of Lights starts promptly every night at 8pm and only lasts about 15 minutes. If you arrive early you will probably see a line of people waiting to get onto the harbor front boats as from these boats you have the best views of the light show. During the event several buildings change colors, and huge spotlights beam from the top of other buildings which changing light colors.
