Don’t Forget to Watch World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show in Hong Kong

Often international tourists find it daunting to decide the places to see and things to do in Hong Kong within a short span of time. Many visitors love to observe the distinct culture and traditions of the region by visiting popular sites like Macau Sky Tower, Kun Iam Temple, Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tien Hou Temple, A-Ma Temple, and China Folk Cultural Village. At the same time, many international tourists also visit Macau, Shenzhen and Mong Kok while holidaying in Hong Kong. But no international tourist forgets to observe the world’s largest permanent light and sound show while staying in Hong Kong.

For the local people, A Symfony of Lights is a light and sound show which takes place at 8pm Hong Kong Time every night. They often forget the simple fact that A Symfony of Lights is the world’s largest permanent light and sound show according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The combination of colored lights, laser beams, searchlights performance, music and narration further makes the show different from similar shows across the world. Further, the five distinct themes – Awakening, Energy, Heritage, Partnership, and Celebration – keep the international visitors mesmerized for around 14 minutes.

While holidaying in Hong Kong, you can watch A Symfony of Lights without any admission ticket. You can further observe the daily light and music show from a number of locations. But you can always make the experience more memorable by watching the show from specific locations. It is always a good idea to watch the nightly spectacle from either the promenade at Golden Bauhinia Square in Wanchai or Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Likewise, you can also consider watching the daily light and sound show from various sightseeing ferries in the Victoria Harbor.

Also, you must remember that the music and narration is broadcasted in a number of languages – English, Cantonese and Putonghua. If you are not familiar with the local languages, it becomes essential to watch to watch A Symfony of Lights on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. On these three days the music and narration is broadcasted in English. You can easily watch the daily light and music show regardless of your holiday plan or schedule. However, the Hong Kong Tourism Board sometimes suspends the show due to bad weather or emergencies without any prior notice.
