Magical light display at night, interesting architecture by day

Head to the Kowloon side for the best view. The show begins at 8 and ends at 8:15, but the crowds gather earlier. Fun concerts in the area outside the ferry dock.

The view has always like a fog so we can't see clearly the skyline. Photos cannot be very sharp. It's usual in some cities in China.

Amazing skyline that we did by boat. A must see on my list at night. Could not believe how imaginative some of the buildings light up

If you can book a hotel in Kowloon central district you will always have a great view of the Hong Kong Island skyline and a must do activity is watching the nightly light show at 8.00 pm.

Hong Kong skyline is so famous that there is no need to explane how beautiful it is. As a local, I would like to recommend you to visit this place in summer and autumn time. Winter in Hong Kong is not cold, a good time to have outdoor activity. However, the northly wind from mainland China brings in polluted air.... More

The Hong Kong skyline is world class. The buildings are lit up at night. Take a jacket the temp drop, you will probably linger here awhile at any time of night or day. There's a Symphony light show at 8 pm each night. (This is ok, but if you have something important to do, you aren't missing anything outstanding). There's... More

Hong Kong is really beautiful. The skyline is probably the most beautiful I have ever seen and I have seen many city skylines. It's beautiful at night. I just couldn't believe how large the city is. There is a light show of the Hong Kong skyline at night. I wouldn't worry about seeing it as it doesn't seem worth the... More

HK has some of the tallest and grandest buildings in the world, hence, it's skyline is really a must see. There's a 8pm show (symphony of lights) which can be best viewed from star ferry (fare is 2.5hkd) or victoria harbour. Come in early to get the best position. Usually it attracts large crowd. It's best at night esp for... More

It isn't New York or Paris but the skyline is quite spectacular. Try seeing it at night from the bay. Loved it.
