Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights Gets a Makeover

Dubbed as the ‘World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show’ by the Guinness World Records, Hong Kong’s iconic Symphony of Lights is a must-see for all who come to visit our fabulous city, and starting from tonight, it’s getting a glowing new makeover!

Along with a new soundtrack performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the new and revamped light show will now feature nine new buildings including the Central Government Complex in Tamar and the Revenue Tower in Wan Chai. Not only that, but there will also be a brand new range of light installations and LED displays that will make it a stunning visual treat for those on both sides of the harbour.

Despite new buildings joining the display, the total number involved has been bumped down from 43 to 40, and the length of the show will be cut from 14 minutes to 10 minutes in an attempt to make it a more energy-efficient spectacle to enjoy each night.

If you can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about, then head down to vantage points such as the Tsim Sha Tsui Harbourfront or the Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai before the show starts at 8pm every night.

And if you happen to be on Kowloon side afterwards, don’t miss out on the multimedia extravaganza that is the Hong Kong Pulse Light Show which is projected onto the Cultural Centre Open Piazza every twenty minutes running up to December 28.
