Hong Kong’s skyscrapers

Dubbed the “City of Life” by Hong Kong’s marketers, it truly lives up to its name. Hong Kong is one of the most incredible cities on this planet, and taken everything into account, it has just a few rivals. While the construction of skyscrapers has moved to China where they are sprouting into the upper atmosphere like mushrooms on steroids, Hong Kong is taking new construction a little more cautious.  It is the city in the world with the most beautiful skyline. Its only rival, New York, got demoted in 2001.
