HK deserves this one. But I kinda like the skyline better @ night.

That third pic is insane. 2IFC looks like such a beast, and the lights

Christ on a cracker do I love HK's skyline. Too bad I've never seen it in person.

The lights looks nice but I prefer with the lighting effects / symphony of lights.

Anyway, do visit HK one of these days. I'm sure you'll enjoy it

The symphony of lights is pretty sweet, but even normal HK lighting is something you'd be hard pressed to find in Chicago.

And I hope I can visit someday soon. Know any good spots where I can take the girl and just look at the skyline, the mountains, a sunset? Man, that would score me some serious points!

The Peak Tower is the most common place to view HK's skyline from above. And it's very crowded there.

And about HK girls, I love them especially when they're innocent

As for Chicago's skyline at night. It's very impressive as well but I find it very yellow in lighting

Well I think the Peak Tower is not the place to go. But the peak trail is a prime location. Just if you can get off of the trail there.

Well it can get chilly up there at night (unless it's summer), so you may need to warm the partner up.

Potentially you could do something wild without anyone noticing if you walk off of the trail. But then you would have to be careful of the mountain monkeys.





What about the Tsim Tsa Tsui promenade?



Or even on a tram ride or on the Star Ferry?

Chicago has an abundance of spots for this type of thing as well.

TST promenade is still a nice place for couples to hangout. Also have dinner in Aqua at 1 Peking Rd.

The second and third pics are just what I had in mind. Chicago could do, but man, I don't know if I can find anything as breath taking as those views in HK. Being on a boat would be pretty kick ass too. It's just a recipe for love.

It's tight but it's a bit expensive to rent one.

I'd imagine so. Probably worth it though. I remember Rush Hour or Rush Hour 2, not sure which one, but they went on a boat in, what is that body of water, the South China Sea? Anyways, that was the first time I ever saw HK's skyline, and what an introduction. Views don't get much better than that. Now getting out on the water in real life, that would just be something else.

Especially in one of those cool pirate looking boats.

I guess I agree with the lighting comment. On certain holidays, random buildings will have special lighting for no apparent reason. Wish they'd do that every night.

It would be better if it was every "key" building especially those in the waterfront.
