Opened in April 2011, Sky100 is the highest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong, and situated on 100/F of International Commerce Centre (ICC) at a height of 393 meters above sea level. A few words about this building. ICC is located in West Kowloon, and stands right above Kowloon station, which is a part of the Airport Express and Tung Chung lines. The building was jointly developed by MTR Corporation Limited and Sun Hung Kai Properties, one of the largest property companies in Hong Kong. Currently, ICC is the 4th tallest building (490m) in the world, after Burj Khalifa, Dubai (828m); Taipei 101, Taipei (508m); and Shanghai World Financial Centre, Shanghai (492m); and the tallest building in Hong Kong.
It comprises 118 floors: The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong occupies the top 17 floors from 102 to 118, which make it the highest hotel in the world; located on 101/F, Sky Dining 101 offers a number of fine restaurants serving Chinese and Japanese cuisine with breathtaking views of Victoria Harbour and the city; 100/F is home for Sky100 Observation Deck; floors from 10 to 99 are designed for offices and divided into 5 zones; at the basement is Elements shopping mall.
Recently opened, Sky100 offers a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of Hong Kong skyline. After buying a ticket go up to the second floor. The tour begins from an interactive multi-media exhibition that shows the local history and Victoria Harbour at a day and night. Then, one of high-speed elevators transfers you from the 2nd to the 100th floor in just 60 seconds. Each elevator has a monitor that shows the progress status (floor, height in meters, temp and humidity). Upon exit the elevator, you will pass through the corridor, on the floor of which is a miniature model of the city center. Finally, visitors will see a bird's-eye view of Hong Kong skyline, including the Harbour, the northern coastline of Hong Kong Island (Western, Central, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and North Point), Kowloon (Mongkok, Yau Ma Tei, Tsim Sha Tsui), Outlying Islands, and even Tsing Ma Bridge on a clear day.
To know what to expect from the observation deck, visit a virtual tour at the official website. Sky100 is not an alternative to Victoria Peak (the Peak). Both offer an amazing 360-degree panoramic view of the city, one from the island side, another from Kowloon side.
