Hong Kong is a city that has clearly gone vertical. According to this Wikipedia page the city has 112 buildings which are taller than 180 meters (591 ft). The tallest among them is the International Commerce Centre which was completed last year and opened this year. It sits at 484 meters (1,588 ft).
I passed by the building many times during the past few days. I was tempted to go have a drink at the bar on the top floor. But we eventually decided to get a bird’s eye view of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak instead (see “High In Hong Kong“). This is a picture I took from the cab.
Here is one from Victoria Peak.
