Surprisingly, there are lots of free attractions for visitors to enjoy in Hong Kong. One of these isn’t particularly well known but is worth dropping in on if you happen to be in the area (and particularly if it’s a clear day).
The Bank of China Tower is a distinctive looking skyscraper in the business district of Hong Kong Island. To most, it simply blends into the steel and concrete jungle. But single it out and you’re treated to a freebie. Providing you have photo ID, you can head up to the 43rd floor and enjoy views (albeit limited) of the neighbouring area, Victoria Harbour and the south side of Kowloon.
Upon presenting your ID at reception, you’ll be issued with an Visitor Pass and directed towards a special lift with just two buttons; ‘Ground’ and ‘43’. Hit 43 and you’ll be whisked up to enjoy the views.
