“beautiful, but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The tallest building in Hong Kong, is actually is Kowloon..but the view from up there is gorgeous. The elevator flies, and you'll feel your ears pop, and in seconds you've arrived at the 100th floor. The entire floor is open to visitors (360 degree view) and there is a restaurant and bar on side opposite of the Victoria Harbor view. Arrived before 8, hoping to see some of the light show that the buildings display at night - the light show was a little underwhelming - the views were awesome, watching the ships move in the harbor, and the city come to life as the sun set was amazing. The only negative was the price - it seems like a lot to pay for an hour's entertainment. And perhaps that is why there were few visitors while we were there. If I had it to do over again - I would plan a meal there - that might take the sting out of the admission cost.

“A must see after dark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We arrived close to 9:00pm on a week day. This was during the Chinese "Golden Week" so most other attractions were over run with people. Our concierge told us the last addmission is 9pm. There was zero line up and very few people, we spent a good hour on the floor. The view after dark is really cool. I just haven't seen a city view quite like it before. This is a well run, trouble free attraction, and I highly recommend it. We arrived by Taxi. When we left we found ourselves wondering around the giant shopping mall trying to find a taxi stand - it took us 30 minutes to get out of there!

“My first time at 100th Floor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We came from Chung King Mansion,Nathan Road by using bus and waited at New China Hong Kong City point so we walked crossing Kowloon Park first.We were lucky because the weather was nice and clear.We came early at 10 am and spent more than one hour here. It got lots of views to wonder and its really breathtaking. That's how we learn that Hong Kong is group of wonderful islands.

The lift was so fast and smooth and they have locker here to keep your item for a fee.At the time we came, Wikipedia ranked ICC as the 7th tallest building in the world.Petronas Twin Towers in my country is the eighth. So, I'm quite proud to be here and the 100 number is really perfect!

“270* View”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The night I went up the tower, one side was closed for a private function. Therefore the view was only 270 degrees, while the price of HK$168 was not reduced accordingly! The view from the top was quite impressive, however not good for taking photographs due the glass being too reflective from the inside. A day view might be better. Included in the price is a "complimentary" photograph. Which sounds great, the picture is 4cm x 3cm if you want a larger one expect another HK$100 charge for each picture. There is also an overpriced cafe up there too to tempt you. For me the best part was the elevator up and down, no view at all, just quick! It really isn't worth the trip to it far better sights to see in HK!

“Top of the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

great all around views,lots of open space unlike other observation decks we have visited. Hong Kong is a bit 'iffey' when it comes to the visibility,when we went it was about average,pot luck plays a big part.Last time we were in Hong Kong the sky was as clear as. Visited at 11AM
We booked on line via the website but turned up 45 mins early and were able to go straight up no crowds.
Trained it to Kowloon Station , Sky 100 is above the station via escalators, plenty of signs to show the way. Go past the Airport Express airline check in counters and you will see the signs.
Really clean toilets !!!!
Gift shop was disappointing. There is a Bar/eatery facing Macau that looks a tad pricey
