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.
