Also known as simply KK100, Kingkey 100 is a giant skyscraper in Shenzhen, China. At 442 meters tall and with 100 floors, this was the tallest building in Shenzhen until 2015, when the Ping An Finance Center was built. It’s also within the top twenty tallest buildings in the world. This huge structure was designed by the architect firm, TFP Farrells and was completed in 2011.
On the top floor of the Kingkey 100 is a popular observation deck that offers one of the best views of Shenzhen. As well as spectacular views, there is a bar so that visitors can sit by the huge windows and enjoy a drink while marvelling at the sprawling citygate beyond.
The St. Regis is a luxury hotel arranged across floors 75 to 95 of the building. One of the highest hotels in the world, it has restaurants, lobbies, and gardens with some fantastic views. The KK Mall opened in 2010 and sits adjacent to the Kingkey 100 tower. Widely considered to be the best mall in the city, it features international luxury stores, restaurants, cafes, and Shenzhen's first IMAX theater.
Kingkey 100 can be reached by taking the Luobao Line or the Shekou Line on the metro to Grant Theater Station; it’s just a few minutes’ walk from here. Alternatively, plenty of buses serve the area.
A ticket is required to access the top floors of the building, which are reached via a high-speed elevator. The ticket can also be used to pay for food and drinks on the upper floors.
