Hopewell Center on 183 Queen Road East in Wanchai offers a great view of the scary urban Hong Kong Island. On the 62th floor there is a relatively up-market revolving restaurant, oddly named Revolving 66, but on the way – going from the 17th floor to the 56th – there is a nice scenic transparent elevator looking towards the north, with terrific views.
Here’s a video so you can enjoy the ride up and down:
To get there : MTR Wan Chai Station exit A3, walk south 5-10 minutes through the Wan Chai market and take a right to the west at Queen’s Road East. It should be in front of you :
And, yeah, the elevators are free.
