I really like Cheung Kong! I think it makes a great cluster along with Citibank and BoC. Cheung Kong compliments BoC very well, and im sure it would be great to look up between these towers.

My favorites though, are Central Plaza and 2IFC. Maybe ICC when it is done. The Center is not one of my favorites, but it does have a great lighting system and still looks good. What a skyline! One day Id like to visit the city myself, but there is probably no room for a Pole like myself.

Have to go with bank of china tower. Altohugh the international finance center is by far the most beautiful in HK if not the whole world? Very hard question its like comparing Empire state building with the Chrysler building.

Bank of China Tower or 2IFC.

BOC is more internationally known. If somebody says a blue building with X's on it you know what they're talking about.

2IFC looks sleeker but, in my opinion.

I agree. BoC is the iconic building and my personal favourite. it is in my view one of the top 5 or 6 supertalls worldwide for aesthetic appeal and is benuinely tall as well but when the ICC is finished the twinning with 2IFC is going to be mnd blowing.

HK Island with the Plaza, the Centre and the Cheung kong to say nothing ot the BoC and then the giant twins as well as the West kowloon.......man I am looking forward to seeing that in a few years time. 2 Manhattans facing each other !!!!

It's hard to beat this the Bank of China. I also love HSBC, Jardine House, 2IFC, and the Center. The photos are from banned Lithuanian forumer John:
