HSBC Main Building, Hong Kong

3.7
Admire the historical details of HSBC Main Building, designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster and the most expensive building in the world at the time of its completion in 1985. As you approach, you'll see two bronze lions, Stephen and Stitt, which guard the entrance to the bank. Preserved from an earlier version of this building, they still bear shrapnel holes from the Japanese attack on British Hong Kong in World War II and even feature on the Hong Kong dollar banknotes. Enter the building, which is open to the public, to admire its precise and modern design, Feng Shui-influenced style, and the natural sunlight filtering through the glass windows.

  • Beautiful building. Normal banking services on the first floor. Premier on the second floor. It is quicker to go to first floor if your a premier customer. The business banking facilities have the ability to make time travel in reverse.
  • A great piece of architecture! See photos I took.
  • Pretty amazing building with a modular design so its an architectural breakthrough at that time. There are all you can eat lunch buffet offered at 28/F but food choices are limited. Basement is good for breakfast and its very affordable.
  • hsbc payme rubbish apps, can not use!!!
  • Nice building, pioneer in having environmental friendly design back in the old days.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
