The breathtaking view of Hong Kong Island is undoubtedly one of the world’s finest city skylines. Truly panoramic, a dense jungle of glittering skyscrapers stretches from North Point to Kennedy Town, famous buildings soaring at the forefront against the multitude of apartment blocks and mountains as a backdrop. The view is best appreciated from Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront #191 or elevated positions such as Felix #195 or Aqua #203. Alternatively, from High Junk Peak or Jardine’s Lookout it can be appreciated from a different angle with both sides of the harbour in the frame. Hong Kong is one of the world’s most vertically oriented cities, with well over 2,000 towers more than 100 metres in height, three times as many as New York City.
