There’s no better way to begin your friends’ initiation to Hong Kong than by showing off our city’s stunning skyline. And we can’t think of a more dazzling spot that shows off the renowned landscape than at sky100 Observation Deck. Standing at 393m above sea level, sky100 carries the mantle of the tallest building in the city. The sprawling space on the 100th floor consistently wins over out-of-towners and locals alike with its unrivalled 360-degree views of our SAR, making it the ideal place for selfies and check-ins. But don’t just come here for the gorgeous view – there’s also a 28-metre-long interactive multimedia story wall showcasing 100 delightful local tales and anecdotes, a VR ride on the deck, and an AR app to have fun with, too.
Your friends are coming to visit and the pressure to look like you know your stuff is on. After all, where you decide to take them can completely temper their take on Hong Kong. To show them the very best that our city has to offer, dodge the usual tourist traps and bring them to these nine in-the-know gems you can't get anywhere else. Like sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck, for example, which treats visitors jaw-dropping 360-degree views of our metropolis and Biu Kee Mahjong, home of one the few remaining artisan mahjong tile carvers in Hong Kong, as well as seven other local shops and cultural hotspots that sky100 has hand-picked for you.
To help you save time and help your out-of-town friends get the most out of their trips, sky100 is launching a brand new trip planner function, Smart Trip Planner. This function offers customised itinerary suggestions with all the necessary transport information according to your personal preferences. Travelling about has never been easier and more straightforward. That’s not all, from now until June 30, all local residents carrying an HKID card can enjoy “Adults Pay Kids Price” at $128 (adult tickets are originally priced at $188). Enjoy the same discount by bringing a friend from overseas, and 25 percent discount with up to four accompanying tourists. What’s more, visitors can also redeem a set of exclusive Sky High & Nearby Vouchers upon ticket purchase at the sky100 ticket centre or the official website and enjoy discounts at any of the eight local shops and cultural gems below.
