A city of lights

Land in Hong Kong is a rare commodity as Hong Kong is a small city with a population of 7 million people. Further, mountains account for the majority of the land mass. Therefore the “buildable” land in Hong Kong is rare. This is the reason why new buildings, both commercial and residential, are over 60 storeys high. Buildings are virtually constructed on top of each other, especially on the Hong Kong island side, as they are built along the slope of the mountain. These building make spectacular sights in the evening when the lights of the buildings are on. The Hong Kong Tourism Association each year carries out an event called “A symphony of lights”. This nightly spectacle combines interactive lights of 44 buildings on both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon with musical effects to showcase the vibrancy and glamorous vista of Victoria Harbour.
