I traveled to Hong Kong for five days and four nights in the end of November for the first time in five years. While there is a lot of scenery which has been unchanged, I find out something new whenever I visit Hong Kong. In this article, I will write about sky100 (天際100) and night view in Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) as part of Day 4.

Following the previous post, I moved from Jordan to International Commerce Centre building where there is “sky100 (天際100)”, Hong Kong Observation Deck. First, I will go around “Elements (圓方)”, which is located on the lower floor in the building.
“Elements (圓方)” is a shopping mall that was opened in October 1, 2007. It is directly connected to MTR Kowloon station where Airport Express makes stops.
The mall is divided into five zones base on the feng shui’s concept of the five elements of Nature, namely Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth.
So, there were several objects that incorporated the concept of feng shui.
In addition, “Snowy Rewards”, a limited-time event, was held.
Now I will move to “sky100 (天際100)”.
“sky100 (天際100)” is the tallest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong, which is 390 meters height.
There was a near-futuristic LED wall associated with space travel.
Go to the 100th floor by elevator. It takes only one minute to climb up to the observation deck.
I arrived at the observation deck.
Since “sky100 (天際100)” is one of the most famous tourist spots in Hong Kong, there were lots of visitors, but it was not so crowded enough to feel uncomfortable.
View of the Victoria Harbor.
There was a cafe in the deck. Visitors enjoyed landscape from tables beside the window.
The sun started to go down.
It was a beautiful sunset, wasn’t it?
The sun completely went down.
Hong Kong sky100 (天際100) night
It was a magic hour just after the sunset.
Then, I left “sky100 (天際100)” for the next destination.
Garden of Stars (星光花園)
After I leftI left “sky100 (天際100)”, I came to “Garden of Stars (星光花園)”.
I had visited “Garden of Stars (星光花園)” on the first day in the afternoon (see the related article), and I would like to see the night view as well, so I decided to visit “Garden of Stars (星光花園)” again. As I mentioned in the past article, exhibits of Avenue of Stars such as Hong Kong movie stars’ handprints and statues have been moved to “Garden of Stars (星光花園)”.
The statue of Bruce Lee.
The bronze statue of Hong Kong Film Awards.
Other snap photos.
Hong Kong movie stars’ handprints were exhibited like this.
For example, Jackie Chan (成龍) and Sammo Hung Kam-bo (洪金寶).
John Woo (吳宇森), a famous film director, on the left side.
Night Walk around Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀)
I left “Garden of Stars (星光花園)” and walked around Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) on the way to the hotel. To begin with, I went around Granville Road.
There were lots of reasonable outlet shops and cosmetic shops around Granville Road, so the area was popular among young people.
“K11”, a shopping mall.
The mall looked gorgeous as it was light up in the evening.
Now I will have a dinner. I stopped by “Kai Kee Noodle (雞記潮州麵食)”.
In the restaurant. Most of the customers seemed to be local people rather than tourists.
I ordered wonton noodles.
Finally, I strolled around Chungking Mansions (重慶大廈).
Then, I returned to the hotel and the fourth day of my Hong Kong trip was over.
That’s it for the article about sky100 (天際100) and night view in Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) as part of Day 4 of my Hong Kong trip.
sky100 (天際100) is worth a visit as visitors are able to have a panoramic view of Hong Kong from the observation deck. When I go on trips and there is a high-rise building with observation deck, I will make sure to visit it. Here are other buildings I have been to before, so if you are interested in them, please check the related articles 🙂
- Sapporo, Japan (2015 Feb): TV Tower and JR Tower
- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2015 Sep) : Petronas Twin Towers (day and night)
