IFC Mall

Seated at the base of the huge International Finance Center II and beside Exchange Square the IFC Mall should be full of finance types, and indeed you'll see a lot of suit-wearing types at lunch crowding the Pret sandwich shop, but this is really a mixed mall with some very basic and some very high end shops.

Located as it is near the waterfront and beside the public piers it has a lot of through traffic from people living on the outlying islands who take their daily commute via the mall walkways and on to the MTR beneath IFC and the bus terminus underneath Exchange Square.

Crowded with high end shops and some with the pricy "CitySuper" supermarket also located in the mall you'll find that the lower-income traveler will just be walking through on the way somewhere else.

As a tourist the most interesting part is the open decks on the upper levels.  With some simple sculpture, plenty of seating and a few cafes this offers great views over the harbour to TST and also views of the city center.

It is one of the few places in the city center where you can eat outside in comfort away from the car fumes and crowds.  Note that all the square brown wicker chairs are actually public and for anybody to share even though they get dominated in the evenings by the cafes.  You could take your picnic there if you wanted.

Nearby is the Four Seasons Hotel but this is a high-end business hotel and not the place for the casual tourist, or indeed for the local.


It is a short walk on the overhead walkway to Western Market
