The Amazing sky100
Experience magnificent 360-degree Victoria Harbour views at sky100, a must-visit attraction in Hong Kong
henever I travel, I seek out the most unusual, most unique and most interesting sights, letting me stock up on fun stories for my friends. So when I was in Hong Kong a few months ago, I headed to sky100. Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck is located on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre, the tallest building in Hong Kong. At 393 metres above sea level, this is the only indoor observation deck in Hong Kong offering 360-degree views of the territory and its famous Victoria Harbour. Sky100 is connected to major transportation networks and a world-class shopping mall called Elements in West Kowloon. A high-speed lift takes you from the 2nd floor to the 100th floor in just 60 seconds. When my lift arrived at sky100, I stepped out onto the transparent glass floor that put Victoria Harbour beneath my feet. Windows encircle the observation deck, ensuring sweeping views in every direction.
Telescopes in every corner of sky100 feature four different built-in viewing modes, offering magnificent Hong Kong views. Guests can enjoy 3D trick arts as part of “Sky-high 3D Hong Kong Street”, featuring Hong Kong’s tallest building, the International Commerce Centre, the iconic Bruce Lee and a nostalgic Cantonese café, which together enable visitors to experience the unique culture of Hong Kong. Memory Lane I (3D projection exhibition) is a six-metre sculpture superimposed on a 360-degree stereo-scopic projection, presenting HongKong’s evolution over the decades. Memory Lane II is a six-metre-long Time Tunnel featuring LED lighting ef-
fects and ink-painting video projections, showcasing Hong Kong’s transformation over the past century. Using the latest interactive technology of Kinect, “Skyhigh Tour of Hong Kong” lets visitors experience various features of Hong Kong with just a wave of the hand. Sky100 features four anti-reflection photo booths to help visitors take glorious Hong Kong night shots without annoying reflections off the glass windows. The photo booths let visitors take spectacular photos with a selection of attractions as a background and purchase customised souvenirs featuring the photos. Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck is open daily from 10am to 9pm. There are plenty of great views in Hong Kong, but sky100 is in a league of its own.
