A Landmark

One of the not distant local landmark buildings, in central, by I.M. Pei, next to the HSBC building by Norman Foster. Good that you can walk inside free, as it is a banking hall.

The beautiful beams of light I saw during the night view was spectacular. I already did a review of looking at this iconic piece from a distance in my Hong Kong Skyline review, so this mainly focuses on getting up close. At night, the lights from the passing cars, the street lights and displays from other buildings all reflect on... More

Not something I'd go out of my way to see. Saw it while I was in the area. The Bank of China tower, once the tallest building in Hong Kong (the first Asian building over a thousand feet tall), was designed by the famous architect Ieoh Ming Pei. It is a glass and steel structure like many modern skyscrapers.

We were disappointed to be told that the value viewing level, described in many guide books including Lonely Planet, is no longer open. Regardless it is an impressive building close to HK Park and well worth a visit. Also check it out from Kowloon Harbour at 2000 each night during the Light & Music show.

It is one of the landmarks in Hong Kong and I would recommend to take pictures of it from Charter Garden.

This is one of the iconic buildings in HK. It stands out on the skyline and at night has a light display that changes constantly. To me it indicates the quiet dominance of China over HK.

The BoC Tower is an architectural icon, designed by legendary architect, I.M.Pei. Located in Central, Hong Kong, and built in 1990, it is a potent symbol of Chinese prosperity & growth. Note that since (approx) October 2014, the viewing gallery on the 43rd floor is no longer open to the public. The building and surrounding area is well worth a... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
