Sydney's best known neon sign is the Coca Cola Sign in Kings Cross, erected in 1976.

Neon is so much nicer than LED lights.

Hong Kong is the neon capital of the world. It's not found just in major streets or squares, like in most cities... here it's present everywhere in the commercial areas, even in minor streets. Sometimes, the chaotic layout of the signs almost blocks the sky.
It transmits a truly 'life' sensation when you explore the city (incremented with the characteristic hongkonese density).

Besides Vancouver where else has there been a revival in neon? Its heyday was from the 1930's-60. In many places such as San Francisco's midmarket district it was removed completely. There was a ballot measure to bring back the sign district(not sure if it was neon or just billboards and led screens). In Time Square in New York and Piccadilly Cricus in London they replaced almost all the neon with the screens.

Vancouver is actively trying to restore neon in the city but it is pretty much anti billboards. Granville Street and Chinatown are where you'll find the most neon:

I've seen many neon lights in HK and more and more china cities are having these neon lights. Probably because the emergence of bright LED's in the commercial market. Apart from low power consumption and high durability, it is brighter than the conventional lights. And yes, prices of LED is dropping nowadays due to massive supply.
