Hong Kong’s power buildings and gleaming harbour are made for the cinema. The city’s views have inspired the sci-fi classic Blade Runner and awed audiences in The Dark Knight. Luckily, unlike Batman, you don’t have to scale a 400-storey building for a glimpse of Hong Kong’s dramatic skyline. There are plenty of less life-threatening spots around town that afford equally stunning views. Remember, too, that it’s not just about Hong Kong from the top down. One of the city’s most famous views is of Victoria Harbour crisscrossed by boats, with architectural wonders lined up in the background. You can get a rush of energy (or acrophobia) taking in this futuristic megacity’s outline, but you’ll need perspective to do it properly. Getting as high as you can (we mean physically) is one good way to enjoy this simple thrill.
