Time Out says

One of Hong Kong’s most Instragrammable sites, known for its incredibly dense and stacked flats.

Also known as the ‘Monster Building’ for its conglomeration of five incredibly dense and stacked residential complexes, Yik Cheong Building and Montane Mansion are possibly the most well-known locations in Quarry Bay and definitely one of the most Instagrammed spots in Hong Kong. A perfect reflection of city’s famed urban density, the photogenic architecture has been featured Hollywood blockbusters like Ghost in the Shell and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Although a banner now tells visitors to ask permission before taking photos, many tourists choose to ignore this.
