I'm visiting HK in August and besides taking lots of pictures of skyscrapers and other interesting architecture from the outside I was wondering if there are any buildings you can go inside and get a nice view from?
Or are they all closed for the public?

Also, is there an overview somewhere over which architecture in HK is worth seeing? The buildings seen from the harbour are obvious, but I'm sure there are lots of other places which you have to know about first, before you actually seek out the place....

Oh... I almost forgot: Macau as well -I understand this is a day-trip from HK, so are there any cool buildings there?

There are some buildings you can go inside, but I'll let the others inform you on that because I'm not too well informed on that.

For an overview - THE PEAK!

Also, don't forget to check out some of Hong Kong's older or colonial styled buildings such as the LEGCO and Murray House (there are more).

Most commerical buildings are open to the public. You might not be able to go up, but you should be able to go inside.

Last Nov, when I went inside Bank Of China, I think the skylobby was closed.
