Interior of Sky100 observation deck
Sky100 is situated on the 100th floor of the ICC in West Kowloon.

sky100 (Chinese: 天際100) is a 360-degree indoor observation deck on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre,[1] in West Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox.[citation needed]

sky100 is located two floors below The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong in the same building.[1] Visitors reach the observation deck using high speed elevators, which travel from the 2/F entrance to the 100/F in 60 seconds.[2]

sky100's Advanced Telescope provides "sunny day setting" and pre-recorded views from bright days, and on-screen indicators point to landmarks. Other settings include night views and fireworks. Interactive touch screens dot the deck, offering facts, tips and an itinerary planner.[2]

The deck offers views of Hong Kong Island, full view of the Kowloon Peninsula and—weather permitting—the ridges that gave Kowloon its name and Tai Mo Shan in the background.[citation needed]

There is a café serving local snacks and refreshments as well as a restaurant serving international cuisines on the 101st floor.[2]
