How to watch Hong Kong's "Symphony of Lights" in style?
Most spectators gather at just before 8pm along Tsim sha Tsui's promenade, to watch the spectacle from there, but the truth is there are much better places to watch the show from and turn the event into a magical experience…
1. To begin with, you can head to the lobby at InterContinental Hong Kong, plunge into one of the comfy couches and enjoy the breathtaking view through the huge floor-to-ceiling window.
2. Felix, the uber-stylish resto-bar atop of the Peninsula Hong Kong, also provides fantastic views of Victoria Harbour and the city skyline, and makes a fantastic spot to watch the show from, in style.
3. If you want to watch the Symphony of Lights from the other side of the harbour, you should consider ToTT's: A modish "resto-lounge-bar" on the 34th floor of the Excelsior Hotel, in Causeway Bay, or The "Terrace" at Sevva, which is perched at the penthouse level, on the 25th floor of Prince's Building, in Central, and boasts a wide alfresco balcony with comfy couches... G Bar, a trendy New York style lounge-bar at IFC Mall, in Central, is also worth considering, although the views from it are not as spectacular as from Sevva or ToTT's.
4. Last but not least, you can board a Symphony of Lights Harbour Cruise and enjoy the best possible views…
A Harbour Tour aboard the historic Star Ferry has been featured on National Geographic's "top 50 experiences of your lifetime” !
Harbour Cruise – Bauhinia offers a formal sort of dinner-cruise, while Aqua Luna offers a romantic harbour cruise aboard a traditional Chinese junk.
To know more about those places, you can view and download a copy of "25 best things to do in Hong Kong", which is a free online-guide that has a lot of info about the city and its main places-of-interest.
Rather do some real research so I will be able to see what interests me.
I have watched from the InterContinental lounge when visiting my uncle. It's great to stare at the view of Central with a ridiculously expensive martini.
