Travel Post Friday: Lights of Hong Kong

Hong Kong nightly laser light show, Victoria Harbor (courtesy kelvin255 at Flickr CC)

This was taken at the nightly laser light show in Hong Kong‘s Victoria Harbor (or Harbour if you prefer.)

The view you see is across to Central Hong Kong from the Kowloon side; the show happens at 8 pm and there is even a soundtrack to go with it, blaring out of speakers on the waterside walkway in Tsim Sha Tsui, but here’s the best way to see it….

Grab yourself a gin and tonic in the Lobby Lounge at the Intercontinental Hotel in Kowloon – it has floor-to-ceiling windows and is a MOST civilized viewing spot. (They have a pretty solid hotel Facebook Page and are active on Twitter, as well.)

When people ask me where I’d like to live in the world if money was no object, I usually say Hong Kong.

How about you?

Note:  I started this Travel Post Friday series when I stepped away from writing the BootsnAll Family Travel Blog in December 2010. If you like it, there’s more of my travel work on the Perceptive Travel Blog.

  1. Ah, another photo reminding me I need to return to Hong Kong soon – I haven’t been since I was 9 years old! A nightly laser show is pretty impressive.

    And thanks for adding the “Harbour” spelling alternative – love my Aussie (British) spelling.

    Hi Amanda,

    Well, sure, the blog has an international audience so spelling matters! And yes, you’ve gotta go back….
