Hong Kong Skyline: Symphony of Light

They say the best things in life are free (or almost…).

The Star Ferry is, together with the skyscraper laser show, one of the major tourist attractions of Hong Kong. It's almost free and takes you from Central to the busy shopping district at the other side of the river, called Tsim Sha Tsui.

This is magic kingdom of luxury boutiques, fancy restaurants and hotel. The place where queues roll around Cartier, as many tourist from Mainland China - and all over the world - come here to buy their engagement rings.

There is a huge Occidental reminiscence in many buildings, either classic or modern, it creates an interesting contrast with the "I am in China" fact.

But instead of fanciness which we cannot afford, we'll focus on what everyone else should: The Boat & The Show. So, as you get off the boat, make sure to take a left and find a spot to sit or - better - stand by the bar. That way, we are certain you won't miss any detail.

It's actually quite nice to stop by and just observe the skyline. I mean, it's a show in itself. The lasers add a bit of value, but the most impressive (I think) is to look at the city with most skyscrapers in the World reflecting all its glow over the sea, at night.

The one with triangles is the Bank of China tower, where tourists can actually visit for free.

But my predilect was, of course, the rainbow one.

As well as the shiny Samsung sign - Koreans know how to create a brand.
