Top ways to experience Central Plaza and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.

Central Plaza is a 78 floor skyscraper situated between the Exhibition Centre and Admiralty MTR Stations. It is also quite near the Wanchai MTR Station as well. When constructed, this was the tallest building in Asia and held that distinction from 1992-96. Today, it remains the third tallest building in the city and a landmark in the Wanchai area of the city.

Probably the most interesting thing about Central Plaza for tourists is the 46th floor Sky Lobby which you can freely visit to enjoy 360 degree views of HK Island, Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula. Access to the 46th floor is by way of the ground level escalator to the lobby and lift bays. Walk to the south side of that floor where you see lifts for floors 46-75. Enter any of the lifts and just press up. All lifts go to floor 46 where everyone exits into the Sky Lobby. Office workers will proceed around to the other side of the 46th floor where they take another series of lifts accessing floors 47-75.

If you are just visiting, you can walk around the 46th floor and enjoy landscape views of the city which are really nice when air quality and sky conditions are favourable. You can see many landmark buildings on both HK Island and the Kowloon Peninsula across the harbour. 10-20 minutes to enjoy the views will do. Then, just return the same way you came, back down the lift to the ground levels where you can continue onward with other intended sightseeing in the area.

Great free viewing spot on Level 46. As other reviewers have posted. Central Plaza is not a shopping mall, mainly offices and judging by the flags out front about a dozen different consulates are here. The reason you might come is simply to wander the massive Level 46 viewing floor. I’m guessing this was built as a transfer floor as it’s a huge area with no retail or anything here. Just massive double height windows in all directions. If they allowed a coffee shop to set up business here it would be one of the most impressive in HK! Anyhow if your a tourist or new to HK and looking for an observation deck of the city in a spot where you won’t be bothered by crowds… this is the place to come. You need to come up the escalators from the walkway level to the mezzanine floor where there is a Pacific Coffee place. Find the bank of lifts that take you to levels 46-75. The lifts are super high speed you’ll go from M to 46 in about 28 seconds. Then you’re there. In this massive space. The only other folk around you will be office workers moving between the transfer lifts. The rest of the floor space is yours to enjoy the views from.

No problem I’m getting in the lift after lunch hours. 46th floor and you’ve got some good photos of all of HK, be it the peak, Victoria Harbour, the spinning restaurant of the Hopewell Centre, IFC, ICC and all the others. A night visit would be good!

Great (free) 360 degree view of the city. Worth a visit if you are on the way to Wan Chai mrt from the Wan Chai jetty. Else it's not worth the detour.

It probably gives great views up top but so too do most other buildings I Hong Kong. It is a pleasant neat and classy office building and although not a tourist attraction, and hence something to be reviewed you will find the ground floor is used as a transit for people walking through
