Laser Lights in Hong Kong
We arrived in Hong Kong on April 29, 2017. It’s a National Holiday weekend in Hong Kong so the city is super busy with Monday a Holiday making for a nice long weekend for the city’s inhabitants, but a really busy city.
The Ship is docked near a shopping mall in the downtown area of the Kowloon section of the city. We are lucky in that we docked port side, so our starboard side apartment has a spectacular view of Hong Kong Island across Victoria Harbor.
At night the city comes alive with all the buildings lit up with an assortment of colored lights. This is the same picture taken during the day and at night. What a difference!
We attended a breakfast forum by University professor Tai-Lok Lui on the origins of the importance of Hong Kong. After breakfast we headed out on our own walking tour to get some fresh air and exercise. The City is really busy, so after a few hours we headed back to the quiet of the Ship and took a short nap before grabbing lunch at the pool grill.
It was a quiet afternoon with another nap and some personal maintenance before heading to dinner at our Asian restaurant. It was a beautiful evening and we sat outside and enjoyed the evening. Every night at 8pm Hong Kong has a laser light show in Victoria Harbor with 44 different buildings shooting from the Hong Kong Island side of the Harbor to the Kowloon side (which is where the Ship is moored). It is the world’s largest permanent light show and lasts for 13 minutes.
