The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL) opened on September 23, 2018, connecting Hong Kong to China’s 25,000-kilometer trans-national high-speed rail network. This vast network offers direct trains to 44 destinations across the mainland, including six short-haul destinations in Guangdong Province, and 38 long-haul destinations such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Changsha.

Located just a 10 minutes’ walk from XRL’s Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, and only two stops from Hong Kong International Airport via the Airport Express Link, sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck (sky100) is the natural first stop for both inbound and transit visitors. Situated directly above Kowloon Station, sky100’s accessibility makes it a good choice for kick-starting a Hong Kong adventure or as the final stop before continuing a multi-destination rail journey across China.

Upon arriving at sky100, visitors ride the fastest double-deck elevator in Hong Kong, reaching the 100th floor of Hong Kong’s tallest building, ICC, in just 60 seconds. From a height of 393 meters, sky100 offers panoramic 360-degree views of Hong Kong. To bring this world-renowned skyline to life, sky100 has newly launched “sky100’s Tales of Hong Kong”, a 28-meter-long interactive story wall showcasing 100 fascinating stories with text, videos, and various exhibits, enabling visitors to enjoy Hong Kong’s skyline while also learning more about local tales, traditional craftsmanship, and special customs. After visiting sky100, visitors can walk to Jordan to experience the authentic local culture, or take the train to Central and explore the artistic neighborhoods in Mid-levels. All this and much more is within 15 to 30 minutes of sky100, so visitors can make the most of their time in Hong Kong.

What’s more, until December 30, 2018, take advantage of the Turn Your High-Speed Rail Ticket into Cash” promotion to celebrate the commencement of the XRL.
