Why Hong Kong Skyline is special ?

Hong Kong, one of Asia’s biggest and most international cities, also enjoys one of the world’s most impressive skylines, particularly at night. With the Victoria Harbour splitting the city in two, Hong Kong is a forest of skyscrapers squeezed together in front of a backdrop of green hills on both the Hong Kong Island and Kowloon sides.


The Hong Kong Skyline is of course a landmark of its own. Hong Kong has the highest number of skyscrapers of over 150m in the world and the skyline is continuosly changing. Hong Kong's already impressive skyline comes to life each night thanks to the intricately choreographed Symphony of Lights.

What to explore at Hong Kong Skyline?

To fully appreciate the size and scope of Hong Kong’s downtown area, you need to see it from above, and there are a variety of ways to do it. One of the best and most popular views is from the top of Victoria Peak. The vantage point from the top of the funicular lets you see the South China Sea, Central, Kowloon and the mainland extending into the distance. For a similar view, though not a 360-degree one, head to the International Financial Centre Tower 2 (2IFC). You can register at the front desk to ride up to the public observation deck on the fiftyfifth floor free of charge (and other tourists).

At night, Hong Kong’s skyline lights up beautifully, and 44 of the skyscrapers on both sides of the harbor participate in the Symphony of Lights, a nightly light and laser show. For nighttime views of both sides of the skyline, take a harbor ferry cruise at or after sunset.

Ultra modern, towering buildings both residential and commercial have sprung up all over the erstwhile British territory. Kowloon is awash with some fantastic architectural and structural marvels. The tallest building in the area,the Sky100 offers spectacular 360 degree views of the city. Then again the views from the Peak give an idea of the still green Hong Kong with its thrust skywards!
