Pictures of the Day: Views from Pacific Place

Looking westwards to Central from Admiralty
Looking at the view to Kowloon with a reflection of Central
I can never tire of Hong Kong's skyline.

One of the cheapest ways to enjoy it is from the Star Ferry crossing from the Kowloon side to Hong Kong Island.

The next best spot is probably on The Peak.

But these are the usual angles.

Things get more interesting when you see the city from different positions.

Tonight I went to Cafe Gray Deluxe for dinner. It's located on the 49th floor of The Upper House, next to the Marriott Hong Kong in Admiralty.

While the view we got looked out onto Victoria Harbour, we could also look eastwards to Wan Chai and Causeway Bay.

Looking down at the city from 49 floors up
But it was the view below that was most fascinating -- watching the traffic whizz by on roads snaking around buildings, oblivious to us above.

  1. Cool photos... Wish there was less haze in the second photo but yes, the view captured by the third photo is really stunning! :)
