yes , mega city! very modern but the heat is evil. Here in Germany we had 4°C. It's so fascinating to see all the huge buildings standing to the next. I hope I visit it again.

The Arrival












The first encounter with ICC






concrete jungle in Tsim Sha Tsui


Approaching the tall beast


the bus looks like a toy compared to ICC




it is growing into the sky like a mammoth tree




the other side of the hong kong bay




ICC's smaller brother is visible


and it's child...


both together


the legendary bank of china tower




final destination at our hotel: harbor plaza norht point


night life




Day 2: Discoerving the city centre by tram






the poor workers with long syntethic clothes in that heat


The giants are everywhere around us






At Times Square


Interesting Crownes and architecture




Central Plaza is dominating Central District








all big known names are here in HK






Once the biggest tower in the city but still an icon

yes the city centre is quite clean of course, but not everywhere



ICC just overpassed 2IFC in Sept. 08








HK Exhibition Center




Tallest Tower in HK since summer 2008


The other side of the harbour




a small oasis in this huge concrete jungle




Central Plaza's plaza


without words...


Lobby




what a column compared to the person next to it






2IFC Entrance, free entrance to money museum at 55th floor!!


Standing tall


in the museum




The Center claims its place




bottom under the feet again


This nice skywalks are almost everywhere and lead through the airconditioned buildings




China's next topmodel?


looking to causeway bay








climbing the peak of HK








HK bank, most expensive bank building in the world


the Interior


it looks a little bit extra terrestrial compared to the other buildings




Norman Foster's beauty




China Bank plaza








The facade associates two dragons who are hugging themselves
