A Hong Kong icon that composes the skyline. I love photographing the exterior of this building from street level. Designed by I. M. Pei and L.C Pei and the most recognizable skyscrapers in Admiralty, Hong Kong.

This building is contentious as it is beautiful. Hong Kong locals can be vehemently opposed to this building because its Feng Shui is off, but this move was intentional so that the building faced to intimidate what was the British Embassy at the time of...More

The facade of the Bank of China Tower stands out. Love the way the light shines in the evening, makes it look really cool.

A must see in Hong Kong. I know it is just a building but it clearly is a landmark worth seeing. It is really cool lit up at night as well.

Note that the observation deck is closed permanently. However, the building is still good to photograph from the outside as you walk by it towards other attractions.

The actual building is quite spectacular from the exterior. It is meant to look like a number of cubes placed on top of each other. Cubes are meant to bring negative energy but the water features counteract this. The 43rd floor viewing deck is CLOSED...More

It is one among many. Go there if you are a fan of tall buildings and if you want a check mark to show that you've been in HK or for your facebook profile.

Like most buildings on Hong Kong Island, this towers above the skyline and is an important building for Hong Kong. It's iconic lines are worth taking in and if you are watching the symphony of lights show, this building really stands out.

Bank of China Tower : access to 70th Floor (2 Replies)
Hi, We will be visiting Hong Kong in March 2011 for a fortnight. I realise we can gain access to the 43rd floor public viewing area but this isn't a full 360 degree view from what I can make out - however we will still visit the 43rd floor, and of course The Peak. I have read that access to the 70th floor is by 'appointment only'. How do we get an appointment to enter the 70th floor? Is there a fee and what are the hours? I have checked BOC website but no luck as yet. I am hoping...More

Hello This is interesting information, I personally have no idea about this. We visited the tower last month to 43rd floor - make sure you take photo id - preferably passport. I also would like to know about this possible visit to the 70th floor. Will wait for replies from the local experts. Meanwhile, I think you may also be aware of the 55 th floor viewing gallery at IFC 2? - the tallest bldg on HK island? 55th floor actually houses the offices of the HK Monetary Authority - but it...More

Hi! I'm visiting Hong Kong with my family in late July, and was planning on visiting an observation deck to get views of the city. Along with the Peak/Lugard-Harlech road walk, I was wondering which of the following is the best place for a view: Central Plaza 43rd floor, IFC2 55th floor or Bank of China tower 44th floor? Are they all free? Also, in late July, what's the weather likely to be like? Are typhoons problematic at this time? What happens if there is a typhoon? Finally, does...More

I've only been to Central Plaza's sky lobby (it's just a transfer floor for the elevators so you can get there for free). I think to go up 2IFC you'll need an appointment. Another good place is the R66 revolving restaurant on top of Hopewell Centre, although obviously you would have to have a meal or drink there. July will be hot and humid, with chances of heavy rain. Typhoons may hit, but normally they are one day affairs. When typhoon signal 8 or above is hoisted, work stops and people...More

Does anybody know how can we get on top of this building in order to get the best view in town?

The view from The Peak is better and it isn't that much further out of town. But, I believe the 43rd floor of the BOC Building is a pubic observation deck.
