Weather of Hong Kong
I arrived at The China Ferry Terminal at Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront in Kowloon Island, Hong Kong in the evening from Macau. From there, I inquired about the Chung King Mansion, a building located at 36–44 Nathan Road, where I had a guest house booking at New London Hostel. It was about half an hour distance from the ferry terminal. This building is known as the backpacker’s paradise in relatively expensive Hong Kong.I will write a separate post on this building and living conditions in its famous guesthouses.
My guest house owner was an Indian from Punjab and it seemed a big comfort to me.This was my first trip abroad, that too alone, so finding two fellow Indians at the hotel reception was a big relief, especially after Macau incident. It took me 20 hours to reach Hong Kong from Delhi by changing a plane at Bangkok to Macau and then boarding a ferry from Macau to Hong Kong.
After check-in, i first took bath. Thanks God, they have hot water in that chilly weather of Hong Kong. I slept for next two hours.It was 19:30 PM by then. I asked the lady at reception about any nearby places to visit. She informed me about A Symphony of Lights show at Victoria Harbour, which was only at the walking distance of 15 minutes from the building. Later I realized that Tsim Sha Tsui area is a very good place to stay, if you want to visit Hong Kong. Major must visit places of Hong Kong is either nearby or easily accessible from this location.
By the time I reached at the Harbour, the show was started.There was a big crowd of tourists all around. The elevated platform at the harbour was full of the people and entry was closed on that. People were standing all the way from iconic Star Ferry Terminal to the Avenue of Stars to even farther Intercontinental hotel to watch this spectacular, free of cost show of sounds, lasers and lights.
“A Symphony of Lights” has been awarded the world’s “Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show” by Guinness World Records. This nightly spectacle combines interactive lights of 45 key buildings on both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon with musical effects to showcase the vibrancy and glamorous night vista of Victoria Harbour.
Show Time: A Symphony of Lights is staged every night at 20:00 p.m.An orchestration of music, decoration lights, laser light displays, and pyrotechnic fireworks, the multimedia light and sound show lasts for about 14 minutes.
Themes: The Show comprises five major themes, taking spectators on a unique journey celebrating the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong:
The first scene “Awakening” begins with flashes of laser lights that give life to a nucleus of light-energy which gradually illuminates participating buildings using an array of dancing lights and rainbow colour. This scene symbolizes the genesis and powerful growth of Hong Kong.
