Places to Visit in Kowloon, Hong Kong
Symphony of Lights
Awarded the title of “World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show” by the Guinness World Records, the Symphony of Lights is undoubtedly one of the top attractions in Hong Kong. Every night, Victoria Harbour lights up in a thrilling show of lasers, music and more – a 15-minute spectacle for the city’s visitors. Although the Symphony of Lights involves buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour, one of the best places to catch the show is from the Kowloon side. The show is narrated in a number of different languages – if you speak English, visit the Hong Kong Cultural Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. For Mandarin, visit on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and for Cantonese, visit on Saturdays.
