HSBC Main Building, Hong Kong

#123 of 1,105 in Things to do in Hong Kong
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.

  • Hong Kong's major building is a landmark building with a high luminosity in the design, and a bottom is open, so special. Here must be with the outside two stone lion son photographed, in the money of the paper on the bank, printed on the Stone lion son. In the evening the big floor lights up and looks pretty.

  • A bank is a bank and nothing really special about HSBC Main Building. It was upgraded to the current building in the 1980's.  more »
  • Serviced in the Bank and therefore often visit this building. The main feature of the tower is that it can be quickly disassembled and take out.

  • 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!!!
  • Must see building for tourists , it is unique architecture as whole building is made of steel structure giving it its look , front has statues of lions and these have bullets marks from war. Truly historical
