“See the best view in Hong Kong by going up on the famous glass elevator on the 17th floor all the way to the top. There is really nothing quite like it. If you are scared of heights then you might be in for a mild surprise! Take bus 28 from Leighton Road and get off at Baguio Villa five stops later. ”
