“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Just for the view it's worth the effort and its free. Yes take some form of photo ID, although they let us in without it. You get to the top of the first bak of lifts on the 43rd floor and have a view out to the north and west so can get your bearings of things like the old Governor's House,St John's Cathedral and botanic gardens, and across to Kowloon and Lantau Island. On a clear day you get a good view into the new territories. There's also a scale model of the building and surrounding area from before several of the obscuring high rise buildings had been thought of.

“great view of he city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

great place to take pictures. You might get lost but there is really only one way up. Just ask anyone for the elevator to the viewing floor. Also some interesting things to see around the inside. I feel it was worth the trip. from there you can find the road to the peak and lots of interest high end shops

“China bank tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Great Architecture, has a presence on the skyline. It is well known for its controversy in relation to built in an un Feng Shui manner. And hence many Chinese do not like it. And because it is different than the surrounding buildings, all visitors like it.

Limited viewing oportunity from the 43rd floor - but it is free. You won`t get in without id - no separate entrance _ just walk in with the staff.
