Sky 100 Observation Deck
December 2011
Kowloon, Hong Kong
Baby + Stroller around Hong Kong is real tough but one place that we would surely recommend for people traveling like us is the Sky100 Observation Deck! The Sky100 Observation Deck is located on the top (100th) floor of the ICC (International Commerce Centre) Building. It is the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong and offers a 360 degree view of the city below!

I was pondering whether to go to Victoria’s Peak with my family and thought that it would be a bit difficult traveling so far with a baby and stroller in tow. My wife also visited the Peak not long ago and was not eager to re-visit so soon. I read about Sky100 on the internet and saw some flyers at the airport. It was inside a building and beside a mall; these two reasons were actually enough for us to decide to try to go as indoor malls are the best place to roam around with a baby in Hong Kong.



We road the MTR and exited at Kowloon Station. After exiting the station and entering the connecting infrastructure, we immediately noticed less people and a very luxurious feel. This was actually the Elements Mall which had luxury shops and high priced restaurants left and right. The mall was definitely high end; even the benches around the mall where covered in expensive looking cushions and you can also see different displays of artwork at various parts of the mall. Definitely not the place to shop when on a budget but a good place to roam around as there was definitely less people and there were places where you can rest comfortably.



Elements Mall: that huge thing is basically just a place to sit and loft around inside it.

We then walked through the mall towards the ICC Building where well dressed and mannered staff guided us from buying the ticket and riding the very fast elevator up towards the 100th floor. The elevators were quite fancy with digital displays, futuristic lights and even the ceiling had an LCD monitor displaying clouds as well.



Futuristic Elevator: LCD Screen on the Ceiling!

The Observation Deck was also very luxurious and spacious. The decorations were top notch and there were various photo locations of interest for tourists. We visited late afternoon to be able to see both the day and night skyline of Hong Kong from above. There were some snacks and drinks for sale at the top; overpriced of course but nothing too horrible.



Mirrors!

Some say that Sky100 is even better than Victoria’s Peak especially if you take into account travel time, weather, etc. I haven’t been to Victoria’s Peak (or haven’t been since I was 9?) so I can’t say myself but Sky100 is definitely worth your time and I have to say we (me, my wife and baby) had the most fun there during our time in Hong Kong (not including our stay in Disney of course :P).
