Lately we've been doing, and will be doing, some regular trips to Hong Kong. This will give us a few more opportunities to see and experience more of what Hong Kong has to offer.
Every night Hong Kong puts on a light show across the harbour, called the Symphony of Lights. It starts at 8pm and goes for about 20 minutes. It involves 37 buildings and the buildings flash and dance to musical accompaniment. You need to be at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront between the Avenue of Stars and the Hong Kong Cultural Centre to get the musical accompaniment. Fireworks are added for special occasions, such as Chinese New Year. The show has received so much international attention that it's been named as the World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show by Guinness World Records. There's also a dedicated website that goes into more detail about the show.
Last night Gail took a short piece of video, right at the end of the show. If you can imagine this scaled across all the buildings in the harbour you'll start to get an idea of the magnitude of the effort that they've gone to. So much for global warming eh?
