Don't Miss Hong Kong's Sky100 High-Rise For The Best Views Of The City

Travelers heading to Hong Kong will find a destination built on contrasts waiting to be explored. Here, traditional temples and markets thrive easily alongside modern skyscrapers. Visitors can take advantage of access to the city's collection of beaches or enjoy savoring the vast food scene, depending on preferences.

Nearly 7.5 million people call Hong Kong home while the destination recorded an impressive 56 million international tourists in 2019. As a port city on the South China Sea, Hong Kong has built its reputation as a global manufacturing and financial hub. It's also a place where visitors can find plenty to enjoy in the way of iconic attractions.

Hong Kong is home to the Tian Tan Buddha as well as the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple. Both locations speak to the area's spiritual and traditional roots. While Victoria Harbor and Hong Kong Park highlight the natural beauty of Hong Kong, places like Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park put a modern amusement-style twist on a visit.

Whether you're new to Hong Kong or you're a traveler that returns regularly, making the most of great views is often a highlight of a trip this way. That's when adding a stop at Sky100 to your itinerary is a must. This stunning observation deck is a one-of-a-kind experience in Hong Kong and one that's well worth enjoying when you want to get your eyes on all the city has to offer.

A view designed to inspire

When a bird's eye view of Hong Kong is what you're looking to enjoy, Sky100 is sure to thrill. This towering observation deck is located 100 floors in the air in the International Commerce Centre, Hong Kong's tallest building.

Taking time to take in the view from this breathtaking vantage point can give new Hong Kong visitors a good idea of the layout of the city. Hong Kong's government splits the city into 18 districts, and many can be seen from the Sky100 platform thanks to its 360-degree views. The harbor and surrounding mountains are also visible from Sky100.

When guests enjoy time at Sky100, they'll be visiting the city's one and only indoor observation deck with panoramic views of this kind. If that's not exciting enough, the double-decker elevator to the 100th floor reaches the observation platform in just 60 seconds. Upon arrival, guests will find themselves nearly 1,300 feet above sea level.

More to enjoy beyond the view

The view is certainly incredible at Sky100. However, guests will find there's more to enjoy beyond a beautiful vista. This stop also offers guests access to an elevated eatery known as Café 100 by the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong.

Once visitors have had their fill of Parisian-inspired fare at the café, they can choose to explore Hong Kong's fascinating history at the on-site "multimedia story wall." Next, pursue a heart-pounding experience at the Sky High Tech Zone. This virtual reality center lets visitors "soar" above Hong Kong's skyline in a virtual space that gives you opportunities to explore beyond the observation deck.

Capturing the moment at Sky100 is simple thanks to professional photography services available on-site. Enjoy posing in front of the panoramic views, or let photographers enhance your photos with special effects upon request. Visitors who happen to be celebrating a birthday while they're in Hong Kong can choose to book a combined package at Sky100 that includes an observation deck visit and a special meal experience at the café. A stop at the gift shop afterward is a chance to pick up a fun souvenir to commemorate your visit.

The next time travel plans bring you to Hong Kong, make sure Sky100 is on the to-do list. Travelers will find it as thrilling as it is fun. It's also a great stop when you're looking to get the very best possible views of Hong Kong around.
