A Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong

A Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong: Carole's Chatter

Every night (barring cyclones) at 8pm an event called A Symphony of Lights takes place around Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.  It is said to be the world's largest permanent light and sound show.

The narration of the show is in English on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  We saw it on a Chinese language night.  Luckily we were quite early because it meant we got a good possie right at the front on the Avenue of the Stars.  This is on the Kowloon side of the harbour.

There were heaps of people there – the crowd felt very amiable though.  No one pushed or shoved.  To me it felt like the vast majority of people there were Chinese.

The illuminations and laser lights were impressive and kept very good time with the music.  Lights have been installed on 47 large buildings including Standard Chartered Bank.  The show lasts for about quarter of an hour.
