The Hong Kong skyline is one of the impressive features that attracts the attention of many. One of the noteworthy points in the skyline is the Hopewell Centre. You can’t easily miss this spike in the skyline. The 64 storey building offers panoramic views over Wan Chai, Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong Peak. The tall structure is the home to the only revolving restaurant in Hong Kong famously known as R66. Most travellers staying at Wan Chai hotels Hong Kong has to offer make it a point to get up here to enjoy the vistas. One such option is Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong.
The picturesque views that the Hopewell Centre offers makes it outstanding amongst the rest of the structures in the skyline. The lifts moving up and down behind glasses lay out the vistas of this vibrant city right in front of you. The lifts start at the 3rd floor and go up until the 52nd floor. The lift is also situated outside the building to offer views that take your breath away. However if altitude gives you the chills, this may not be the best option. As the lifts progress upwards the streets below gradually disappear.
The restaurant which is known as R66 is somehow located on the 62nd floor. Quite a pricey affair, however, most patrons make their way here not for the food but for the panoramic view this revolving restaurant has to offer. The full turn at this restaurant takes sixty minutes, which means you are guaranteed to see the whole 360-degree view during the course of one meal.
The viewing platform that is used by most visitors is on the 52nd floor rather than at the top of the building. To be on this unofficial viewing platform one has to register on the ground floor with the security.
