Updated: 7 July 2016
The IFC at Central Waterfront is one of the city’s leading business and leisure destinations, which houses a number of offices, high-end shopping outlets and entertainment services for travelers and locals alike. With more than 200 stores, it’s an ideal location for those wanting to shop (luxuriously) as well as sightsee.

The IFC is actually made up of two buildings: Tower One and Tower Two. Tower One is made up of 39 storeys and four trading floors. Tower Two is a well-known landmark in Hong Kong, being the second tallest building on the island. It opened in December 1998, and its first tenants included: ING Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp, Fidelity International, and the Financial Times and more.

Both IFC towers have been featured in various Hollywood films, including; Lara Croft and The Dark Knight, where both protagonists leapt from IFC 2 and IFC 1 respectively.

This is where you will also find the IFC Mall — a popular shopping location for those wanting to splurge on luxury products and retail brands, as well as a number of indulgent restaurants.
