Hong Kong takes 3D to a whole new level
29 Oct 2014

Those planning a trip to Hong Kong must be sure to include the city’s newest feature as part of their itinerary.

A brand new 3D light show, which opens today (October 29th), will be lighting up the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Clock Tower  at Tsim Sha Tsui and turning it into an interactive art display.

The Pulse 3D Light Show will project a variety of 3D audiovisual effects onto the side of the building to coincide with the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, Hong Kong WinterFest and Chinese New Year Celebrations.

Visitors can expect the first performance to be themed around the history of Hong Kong, showing images of the old city and historic steam trains. Each 15 minute show will then vary depending on the evening and the specific festival that is being celebrated.

There will be four shows each night and it will run until November 16th, then December 17th until the 29th before closing until February 14th until March 5th 2015, with it being closed on February 19th.

The best viewing point is believed to be at the cultural centre’s Open Piazza.

For those wondering how to spend the day before visiting the Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show, make sure to take a trip on the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui and head across to Central, where you will get some absolutely breathtaking views of the city’s skyline.

It is also best to make sure you aren’t waiting for the show on an empty stomach, so it is heavily advised that you fill up on some delicious dim sum. There are so many restaurants throughout the city serving this traditional dish and it is a definite must while visiting Hong Kong.ADNFCR-408-ID-801757327-ADNFCR
