ICC is turning out to be one of my favourite skyscrapers in the world.
Others are; 2ifc, Trumptower Chicago, Kuala Lumpur Towers, Empire state and of course the Mighty Burj Dubai.

And what do you think of my HK skyline below? It cost me almost an hour to make.

Yes, around 12:50 AM and opens up again at 5.00ish - except on special nights (e.g. New Year's Eve)

why? it was completely unable to handle the required amount of air traffic for HK. the new airport is a fantastic, efficient building and the bridges they put up to serve it are incredible. sure, it must have been a fun ride coming into HK (never did it myself) but i bet the residents of kowloon city don't miss it!

Such a contrast between 2 sides of the river, left side is a bright white and right nowhere near as much.

The view of the peaks of Kowloon from the northwest is fantastic. The Lion Rock still looks strange to me when not viewed from the urban area to the south.
