10 Place You Didn’t Know About in Hong Kong – #8 The Glass Bottomed Elevator

By July 24, 2009

Follow me on:

The Hong Kong skyline is without doubt the city’s blockbuster attraction, as are The Peak and the Avenue of Stars, two of the most popular spots in town for taking a gander at the skyscrapers and neon lights.

But, if you want to avoid the crowds, or simply fancy a different angle on the world’s biggest sea of skyscrapers, head for the Hopewell Centre. This 66/F building in the centre of Wan Chai was once the tallest in Hong Kong, and remains one of stand out sights on the skyline. What many people don’t know is that the Hopewell Centre offers two, glass, tourist elevators, that command outstanding views over the city and the harbour. Even better, they’re free.

If that isn’t enough, the Hopewell Centre is also home to Hong Kong’s only revolving restaurant on its 66/F. Read more about the Hopewell Centre and R66 Revolving Restaurant in our full review.
