As fitting of a tourist, I went up to the top of the Peak Tram to check out one of the city’s best views. Leaving from about mid-peak level, the surprisingly steep tram is an easy 10 minute ride up to the summit of the peak. Its not the actual top – that’s the view you have to shell out for – where all the uber wealthy in HK dwell.

The next pic details one of the biggest takeaways from the city – the competition for height. Among the sea of skinny skyscrapers, two waldos stand out; The IFC where the Four Seasons and a whole host of fancy label shops live and the not-yet-finished ICC. Located right across the water in west Kowloon, the 116-floor ICC promises to be the tallest building in Hong Kong at 1587.9 feet.
