Take a boat tour or go to Kowloon waterfront for the 8pm light show. This is an amazing sight you must see while in HK.

We had the best room with a view at Sheraton towers Kowloon. 17th floor. Every night at 8pm all the buildings along the river put on a light laser show. Very pretty.

Most people come here for this view and its worth it. Do not miss it either during the daytime or at night. Very special.
