Hong Kong Asia's World City

A Symphony of Lights

A Symphony of Lights

If you thought Victoria Harbour was a dazzling cityscape on its own, hang around for A Symphony of Lights; the nightly multimedia show, which involves more than 40 buildings on both sides of the harbour.

Named the 'World's Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show' by Guinness World Records, coloured lights, laser beams and searchlights perform in an unforgettable all-round spectacle synchronised to music and narration that celebrates the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong. There are five main themes: Awakening, Energy, Heritage, Partnership, and the finale, Celebration. The show is free for public enjoyment and no admission ticket is required.

You can listen to the show's music and narration live nightly at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, and the promenade outside the Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai. (Live narration is available in three languages: English on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; Mandarin on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays; and Cantonese on Sundays.) You can also listen to the show’s music and narration by tuning your radio to FM 103.4 MHz (English), FM 106.8 MHz (Cantonese) or FM 107.9 MHz (Mandarin) or via mobile phone by dialing 35-665-665 (English) or 35-665-668 (Mandarin). Usual charges for phone calls apply.

Time: 8pm daily. The show lasts for about 13 minutes.

* When Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No.3 or above or the Red/Black Rainstorm Warning Signal is issued at or after 3pm on the day, the show will be suspended. No show will be staged even if the signal is removed before 8pm on that day. The show may also be suspended in emergencies without prior notice.
