Have to go for BOC followed by 2IFC then Lippo Centre. But there's so many great ones there.

I reckon. Next to 2IFC it looks like a stubby little midget but put stick it into most cities around the world and it would look like a towering giant

My favourite is 2IFC for its eye pleasing design. I also like Lippo Centre, Bank of China and Jardine House. Best night lighting goes to The Center.

(We can not see it from TST). This tower is covering/arounding
