Since Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck opened on April 17, 2011, Hong Kong had another state-of-the-art sightseeing attraction. As the name already implies, Sky100 is located on the 100th floor of the iconic International Commerce Center (ICC) building. From there, visitors can have astonishing 360-degree views of Hong Kong, Victoria Harbour and the rest of the densely populated city of skyscrapers. Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck is the highest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong.
For all of you who love to keep statistics: Sky100 Observation Deck is 393 meters above sea level. ICC is currently the fifth highest building in the world with altogether 118 floors. ICC stakes up to the spectacular height of 490 meters above sea level.
Ticket Information of Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck
Ticket price for adults is HK$ 168 while tickets for kids (3-11years) and seniors (above 65 years) are priced at HK$ 118. Ticket booked online from official website of Sky100 can enjoy 15% off. Unfortunately, Sky100 discontinued the discount for purchasing advanced online tickets.
In the past, there was a VIP Fast-Pass for HK$ 500 (per person). It could not only guarantee you an entry on the same day without queuing, but also gave you a special gift as a plus. In addition, you could have a chance to be escorted by sky100 ambassador. Certainly, this was a high price, but definitely worthwhile to consider if you were just for a few hours in town. Unfortunately, this offer was also discontinued.
If you don’t want to spend so much money for “just” an observation deck, we recommend you the Ritz Carlton hotel. There are several dining options as well as the highest bar in town: Ozone Sky Bar on the 118th floor. For more information about Ozone Sky Bar in Ritz Carlton hotel please click the link.
Check the Real-time Visibility up on Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck
No one wants to go up Sky100 on a foggy or rainy day when Hong Kong’s beautiful skyline disappears in the clouds. Chances to see beyond Shenzhen (Mainland China) or even to the other side of Victoria harbor will drop to zero. Next to the ticket center is a flat-screen TV to show you the live-view on the observation deck. Check it out before you make decision whether you should go up or not by then.
The Elevator of Sky100 is the fastest elevator in Hong Kong. Figure out how long it takes to go up to the 100th floor from the counting down screen on the top of the elevator.
In the past, you could borrow a multimedia guide for HK$ 20 from Customer Service Center. Five languages (Chinese, Cantonese, English, Japanese and Korean) were installed. This guide would help you tour around the deck and understand other important sightseeing of Hong Kong by short videos. However, now Sky100 has installed introduction system (such as touch screen TV) around the observation deck which is more convenient.
Similar to the Taipei 101, the Sky100 Observation Deck provides you an opportunity to send out letters and postcards. The “Sky Postbox” is currently the highest postbox in Hong Kong located as well on the 100th floor of the ICC (just next to the souvenir shop). Visitors can also purchase some souvenirs from the souvenir shop “Wrap a Wish”.

How to Get to Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck
– From the Airport:
Take Airport Express MTR and get off at Kowloon station. Traveling takes approx. 22 minutes. Fare for a single trip journey is HK$ 90.
– From other places in Hong Kong:
Take the MTR to Austin station through exit D. Both exits (D1 and D2) will lead you towards the Elements mall. Inside the shopping mall follow the signs to the Sky100.
Alternatively, you can take Bus No. 8 from Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier/Bus Terminal to MTR Kowloon Station Bus Terminus. Fare for a single ride is about HK$ 5. Be advised that the bus can take more than an hour for the roughly 12km distance (depending on the traffic conditions). Thus, we highly recommend taking the MTR.
– From Mainland China:
If you are coming from Shenzhen, you have several options. In case you arrive Shenzhen by plane, there is a China Cross Border Bus Coach leaving from the Shenzhen International Airport. It will directly drop you off at Kowloon MTR station.
If you cross the border at Lo Wu or Lok Ma Chau, take MTR to Sheung Shui and get off. Travel time is approx. 7-12 minutes. Fare for a single trip journey is about HK$ 23. Then take Bus 270A from Sheung Shui to MTR Kowloon Station Bus Terminus. Fare for a single trip journey is about HK$ 15, traveling time approx. 80 minutes depending on traffic conditions.
Important: One last piece of advice. The entrance of Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck is located on the 2/F of the “Metal Zone”. Be careful: Don’t take the escalators up (see picture). These will take you to the office tower. Keep left and pass the brand name stores of Bvlgari, Tod’s, Hermes and Loewe. Then follow the signs for Sky100, which will lead you down another escalator. Turn right and you will see the ticket counter and real-time visibility screens.
Let’s preview the great views on Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck first!
When you finish the tour in Sky100, you also can consider doing some shopping in the Elements shopping mall. It is one of the modern shopping malls in Hong Kong with a large variety of luxury brands. The new Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail Link Hong Kong section is located right in front of it.
For better views of Victoria Harbour and the skyscrapers along Wan Chai and Central, the South deck of Sky100 is the best location. From the north-east side of Sky100, the major view is city life of Kowloon Peninsula.
What Should You Do if Sky100 is Closed ? – Alternative Option
If unfortunately Sky 100 is closed during your stay in Hong Kong or you only have time after 20:00 for the night view, we would highly recommend you the Ozone Bar in Ritz-Carlton hotel. It is the highest bar in the world, where you also can have a fantastic view of Hong Kong.
Ozone Bar @ The Ritz-Carlton is located on the 118th floor of ICC building. Besides Ozone Bar, the Ritz-Carlton hotel also has the highest swimming pool (on the 118th floor) overlooking Victoria Harbour. Living in The Ritz-Carlton is definitely one-of-a-kind experience.
Be sure to check the weather report since Ozone Bar is above the clouds and the visibility will not be great in cloudy days.
Although Ritz-Carlton is one of the best luxury hotels in Hong Kong, you still can get very good room deals depending on the period of your stay. You can check out the Best Deals of The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. Play around and find out the bargains.
Plan to Stay: Depending on personal preference.
