Hong Kong Itinerary: Why Pinoys Must Visit Sky100
If there’s one thing that Filipinos love to do – its taking pictures! That’s why its a MUST to drop by at sky100 when you’re in Hong Kong. Not only do you get to enjoy Hong Kong’s skyline, see all the places to visit in Hong Kong from the top but also experience 3D photo spots for FREE.
Located near Kowloon MTR station, sky100 is situated on the 100th floor of the highest building in Hong Kong, the International Commerce Center. It is also the highest indoor observation deck in the city giving you 360 degrees view of Victoria Harbour. Once you get in the building, you will board the world’s first double decker elevator and head to the top in exactly 60 seconds. And if that’s not enough to visit sky100, here are more reasons why you should not miss visiting it when in Hong Kong:
3D Photo Opportunities
Inside ICC, it is strongly recommended to download their mobile app as it will be your key to enjoy their 3D photo opportunities. Don’t worry wifi is available in the building so you can just download the app once you’re in the area.
First, you have the daylight and nighttime sky100 selfie. If you’re visiting with a group, this is one group pic you shouldn’t miss. All you need to do is find the round marker in the floor (as seen in the photo above). Then, open the mobile app, access AR photo and enjoy taking photos!
Then there’s also the photo opportunity where you’re paragliding that you can take by yourself or with a group. I was kinda shy taking a photo so I decided to just sit but it would look better if you tried the photo in the same position as in the one on the right.
Now if that’s not enough. You also get to take home a 3D souvenir where you can take a photo with the ICC building, anywhere you go – even when you get back in the Philippines!
View Hong Kong from the Top
From the moment you reach their elevator up until you reach the observation deck, the experience is absolutely one of a kind. Hong Kong is a beautiful city up close and personal but it is much different when you see it from the top. You can even borrow a VR so you can get to know all the hidden places in Hong Kong.
Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or dessert at Cafe 100 by the Ritz Carlton
And if you wish to savor the beautiful moment in sky100, especially at sunset, why not dine in at Cafe 100 by The Ritz Carlton. The cafe serves a variety of sweets and savory waffles, crepes, panini sandwiches and poffertjes which are not only tasty but absolutely Instagrammable! And if you want to save a little when you dine in the cafe, try Klook’s dining packages for sky100.
Where to Buy Tickets
There are many ways to buy a sky100 ticket. You can directly buy it in ICC building, get it for free in one of the packages for Big Bus Tours, buy it online with 10% discount at sky100’s website or from Klook.
Our aim for this article is to show our fellow kababayans the beauty of Hong Kong and to serve as a guide to Pinoys visiting the country for the first time. We will soon upload a video about our experience so watch out for that! 🙂
