History and museums
Sky100 (Chinese: 天際100) is a 360-degree indoor observation deck on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre, in West Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox.
Sky100 is located two floors below the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Hotel in the same building. Visitors reach the observation deck using high speed elevators, which travel from the 2/F entrance to the 100/F in 60 seconds.
Sky100's Advanced Telescope provides "sunny day setting" and pre-recorded views from bright days, and on-screen indicators point to landmarks. Other settings include night views and fireworks. Interactive touch screens dot the deck, offering facts, tips and an itinerary planner.
The deck offers views of Hong Kong Island, full view of the Kowloon Peninsula and—weather permitting—the ridges that gave Kowloon its name and Tai Mo Shan in the background.
There is a café serving local snacks and refreshments as well as a restaurant serving international cuisines on the 101st floor.
Since 2012, Sky100 has also served as the finish point for the annual "Race to ICC-100 - SHKP Vertical Run for the Chest", organised by Sun Hung Kai Properties (Developer of the International Commerce Centre) and The Community Chest of Hong Kong. The race begins at Level 8 and winds its way up the building's staircases to Sky100. The event is normally held in early December.
