Hong Kong: Skyline

The Hong Kong has at least 7,792 high-rise buildings, with no fewer than 1,268 skyscrapers standing taller than 100 m  and at least 308 buildings over 150 m  in height. The tallest of these skyscrapers is the 118-storey International Commerce Centre, completed in 2010, which stands 484 m and is the ninth tallest building in the world. The skyline of Hong Kong is considered one of the best in the world, with the surrounding mountains and Victoria Harbour complementing the skyscrapers. Each evening, at least 44 skyscrapers and buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour light up in a synchronised show called A Symphony of Lights, named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest permanent light and sound festival in the world.

Thanks to Crissy. Nice Postmark "Post early for Christmas" used.
