OIE is what...30 minutes max from Central on the MTR including waiting time. And a 10 minute drive if there's not much traffic.

It's not open yet. I have seen some photos floating around from pro's who have been up already.

samsung really got the money to put a big advertisement on top of a building on such a scale that it can even be seen in photos taken far away! Still remember one time (I beleive it was the East Asian Games) that the fireworks were lit up during a foggy night, and nothing but the gigantic SAMSUNG logo was displaying. What a prime location for a banner.

I'm going to Hong Kong next week. Can't wait to see the tower illuminated. Just too bad that the render of the New kowloon cultural district looks so empty.

Great shot Shezan!!! The B&W and composition combine very well!

At what time does that floor in BOC close? Before sunset I suppose!
