LMAO, ok ok, calm down & take a deep breath........ listen, USA is the best country in the world!!!!! happy now my american friend?

now back to the topic, does anyone know whether or not the icc will be included as part of the laser show once it is completed? coz as far as i know the whole show is programmed by aussie firm, i assume if additional building is added they probably have to reprogram the whole show am i right?

It will be included.

Several buildings have been built, and included, since the show first started.

How often does that laser show take place?

Because whenever I get the chance to go to HK, I sure want to behold that!

Every night at 8.00 PM (lasts for about 20 minutes). Best viewed from TST promenade or the Peak.

The advantage from viewing it from the Peak these days is that there are so many buildings on Kowloon side now involved, you get a full view - which you won't get from TST promenade.

Alternatively, I don't know if they have the music and commentary syncing with the show on the Peak...

Fireworks on special occasions.

Definitely true, just interesting how that guy brought up his point as though its the reason why movies are set in LA or NY

From the Peak, you actually can't see the lights and laser shooting out from HKI side; but you still can see the Kowloon side. Best place is actually on a boat in the middle of the harbour where you can see everything.

If you are outside the TST promenade, you can always tune in the radio for live commentary and music.

Here is the official website:

well the music isn't all that

just seeing the light show is enough, my favorite spot (haven't been on the peak for the symphony) is the convention center outside central point, there you can get a good look at both sides.

One question, what is the huge searchlight thingy coming off the top of Langham Place in Skybean's second of those three fantastic photos? Any ideas?

the close up view of the lobby area or the bottom part of the tower looks so advanced, makes me think that curly part can actually move and curl up and down.
