Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong

If Hong Kong is the city of skyscrapers, no other building embodies this journey skywards more than the Bank of China Tower. An icon of the city and seemingly everybody's favourite Hong Kong high-rise, the Bank of China Tower has had almost twenty-five years in which to cement its place as Hong Kong's most recognisable building.

It may look like the space rocket from 1980s cartoon Button Moon, but Central Plaza is perhaps the most elegant of all the Hong Kong skyscrapers. Completed in 1992 and standing 374 m tall, Central Plaza is 78 storeys of high-rise chunkiness that dominates the Wan Chai skyline and maybe even that of Hong Kong Island itself.
