Owner description: Designed by I. M.

It was the tallest building in Hong Kong and Asia from 1989 to 1992, and it was the first building outside North America to break the 305 m (1,000 ft) mark.

“Good Views over Hong Kong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

You need to take your passport to get a pass to the 43rd floor. The lift goes only to the 43rd floor so you can't get lost. The views over the city are a bit limited. Its worth a visit if your in the area but dont expect too much. Good value for the money - its free.

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Located in Central, Bank of China offers a free entrance to their observation deck at the 43rd floor. Great view from the top, you will clearly see the HK Skyline with its tall buildings. Stop by at this place when you get the chance to go to Central.

“Great views but glad I didn't pay!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

A friend had recommended this as a 'Must Do'. I would not quite place the attraction in that category but nonetheless it is very good particularly as it is free. It affords wonderful views across the harbour and to Kowloon. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not busy.

I have attached some photographs taken from the tower.

“Symbol of the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

A prominent part of the HK skyline for a long time, great views from the top floor, made great pictures. Better to go earlier during the day the line wasn't that long. It can get crowded by the afternoon. Make sure you bring your camera!
