>Mesmerising Night at Tsim Sha Tshui, Hong Kong

We reached Sheung Wan station, Hong Kong around 6 pm. As what I had planned for this trip, we departed to Tsim Sha Tsui using MTR (which is similar to Malaysia LRT) to the one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong, Avenue of Stars. Using MTR is so easy and most of the popular tourist spots is stated on the signboard. Besides that, using the Octopus card which is similar to the “Touch and Go” card is highly recommended as it is much more convenient.

We walked behind Sogo Complex Mall and we reached earlier before the stunning show start. It is the perfect time to take lots of pics as it is not that crowded but too bad, i miss that opportunities. So sad (-_-). We were too tired so we find a seat to settle down.

Exactly at 8pm, it’s time for the Symphony of Lights which last for 10 minutes. This spectacular multimedia show, named the world’s largest permanent light and sound show by Guinness Eorld Records, combines light and narration while featuring more than 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour. The show creates an allround vision of coloured lights, laser beams and searchlights performing a stunning, unforgettable spectacle synchronised to music and narration that celebrates the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong.

Besides enjoying the stunning and mesmerising show, this is the place also features handprints and statue of the movie superstars such as the legendary kung fu, Bruce Lee and also those behind the camera.

How to get there: Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Exit E, walk towards harbour and go through subway (pedestriab tunnel) to the waterfront; or East Tsim Sha Tsui KCR Exit J, walk through subway and follow the directional signs to the Avenue of Stars.

Because some of us are extremely exhausted, we decided to have our dinner at Sogo Complex Mall before back to our place at Tin Shui Wai.
