No. That is the stupid ,,joke" again. Someone shows a picture that is not funny. And someone else laughs at it and says it is funny or it is a joke. And people start to ask whats funny about it, look at the picture and so on. And that makes people who start that ,,joke" laugh. Like buildmilehightower now. To me this is just stupid and spamming.

BTW: That panorama is gorgeous, as almost every panorama of HK.

The bottom part of the tower as you can see in the photo, is it's official name dragon's tail or people call it because it's fancy name for it?

On the top part of the ICC is it just glass making the outer wall? Or am I not seeing unseen support behind the glasses?

Bit like the Index in Dubai



Looking at the top of this tower its the glass that stretches further high up than the rest of the structure.
