HSBC Main Building, Hong Kong
(3.8/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Hong Kong holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the HSBC Main Building and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 於1865年成立的滙豐銀行,位於中環第四代的滙豐總行大廈在1986年4月啟用,今年剛啟用三十年。共52層(46層樓面及4層地庫)約180米高、內部並無任何支撐結構玻璃幕牆的獨特設計特色,充分善用天然光,這座52億港元建造全世界最貴重大廈可說是香港地標之一。參觀滙豐總行大廈同時,要留意在大廈外從1935年守護銀行大門的兩隻銅獅子:提芬(Stephen)和施迪(Stitt)。 
  • 位於中環皇后像廣場對面,地鐵站出口即可看到這棟雖不是最高,但醒目的一對銅獅子坐鎮在門口的匯豐總行大廈。聽說這是一棟可以拆開重新建構的大樓,是香港的代表性建築之一。 
  • You can see the interesting spectacle of picnic state here the maids on weekends. (Laughs) there, very large buildings. Made while crossing escalators, is cool. Will never pass and walk to the peak from the central station it is building.

  • Very different architecture. A lot of history in this building. At the ground floor, there is a big digital screen which shares the history of HSBC
  • I've always been passionate about architecture, and growing up in HongKong, i never had a proper chance to enter the building. It's magnificently designed and it's glass reflects off the traditional heritage of Hong Kong. The iconic lion is also a joy to watch.
  • Modern Building in Financial Services. Suggest to come in night for stunning slight
  • Make sure you have a close-up look at the stunning headquarters of what is now HSBC (formerly the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank) headquarters, designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster in 1985. The building is a masterpiece of precision, sophistication and innovation. And so it should be. On completion in 1985 it was the world’s most expensive building (it cost upward of US$1 billion). The building reflects architect Sir Norman’s wish to create areas of public and private space and to break the mould of previous bank architecture. The ground floor is public space, which people can traverse without entering the building; from there, escalators rise to the main banking hall. The building is inviting to enter – it’s not guarded or off limits. Hong Kong Chinese, irreverent as always, call the 52-storey glass and aluminium structure the ‘Robot Building’.
  • Architectural marvel... The building comes to life in the night
