That's a serious lineup! I'm voting for BOC though.

Who would pick One International Finance Centre over the taller tower?

So many great towers there. Mine is the Bank of China tower as it was one of the buildings that got me interested in skyscrapers and its design is exceptional.

I agree 100% with you. One Peking road is the most beautiful tower in Hong Kong.

The Centre is my favourite - it's the best-lit building in the world and looks beautiful at night.

It's a toss between Lippo and HSBC - both are very unique buildings.
