It is not just a building but is also an architecture full of stories of the past and years forward of Hong Kong. It is unsperable of the economy, politics, culture and history of Hong Kong.

While walking on day time, we came across this building. At first glance, I said to myself it looked like HSBC in our country, until I got the chance to see the name of the building and it indeed it was HSBC building. It was majestic because you can get motion sickness even if you just looking at it. As the night comes, you will see the linings of the building transforming and preparing for the symphony of lights. Good times, while strolling in HK.

HSBC building is a magnificent building if you are into architectural or engineering or just an appreciation of a well design building. The building is a stand-outs among Hong Kong skyline. HSBC building is an office building, they is no museum a tourist can visit. Tourist can admiring the design structure of the building.

Photographers will enjoy trying to capture that one shot. Probably the best place to take a picture of HSBC building is directly in front at Statue Square. Another good location would be from the Charter Garden.

Ugly building really but what do you expect from an ugly sector. Anyway not really a noticeable building, The other big skyscrapers located around the building and the old central building are far more impressive and unique. Interesting to see the many workers hanging around for a picnic on the sunday, Also apparently there is a myth that if you rub the lions paws outside the bank you will live rich and prosperous which is pretty shallow to be honest i mean come on. Anyways central itself is not really a great area to be around for too long as it's mostly business people and designer shops and luxury hotels, Good for passing by for a few minutes to admire the sights and moving on.
