The skyscrapers along the Hong Kong waterfront are all brilliantly lit and have light patterns built in their facades. Every night at 8PM, there is a light show choreographed with all the buildings on the waterfront.

Kowloon during the day. New Yorkers does this remind you of anything? I feel right at home.
