Hong Kong Tours | Hong Kong buildings up close and personal

For some reason many buildings in Hong Kong do NOT have central airconditioning which means there is always an ugly patchwork of individual units, still it makes for interesting images!  I do like this one


 This building is next to the Wing On Department Store in Sheung Wan

Jardine House in Central is one of most celebrated and famous buildings, finished in 1973 it still looks good (mainly due to newish external cladding) - it is always interesting to look in and see all those bankers and lawyers hard at work as night falls! 

 Jardine House also known locally as the building of a 1,000 as.holes! (really)

Public Housing Estates offer up plenty of interesting images.. this is Lok Fu Public Housing Estate one of the older estates in Hong Kong

 It maybe old but Lok Fu Public Housing Estate is clean and graffiti free for the most part

Going upmarket a little, this is Bellagio a large Private Housing Estate in Sham Tseng, I know people who live on the 66th Floor in one of these blocks! apartment sizes range from 800sqft to 1,200sqft

 Fancy living in fancy apartments (relatively speaking) in the New Territories

An older apartment block on one of our more famous roads in Kowloon, Waterloo Road is full of interesting older buildings.

The Mira Hotel and Shopping Arcade on Nathan Road in Kowloon is a prime example of a fairly standard curtain wall building.

 The Mira Hotel & Shopping Mall replaced the old and famous Mirimar Hotel

There are still some classic 1970's buildings in TST, Kowloon, this one is at the junction of Peking Road and Hankow Road, it is probably worth a small fortune now

 I imaging this building will be torn down and replaced by a 50 floor shiny building in a few years

The Upper House Hotel shares the building housing the J W Marriott Hotel and quite a splendid building it is. 

 The Upper House is considered by Tripadvisor to be the best Hotel in Hong Kong
