The Monster Building: a go-to spot for Instagrammers in Hong Kong

The Monster Building isn’t actually a single building, but an E-shaped complex composed of five connecting structures: Oceanic Mansion, Fook Cheong Building, Montane Mansion, Yick Cheong Building, and Yick Fat Building. They were built during a population boom in the 1960s to offer government-subsidized housing for low-income residents.

The Yick Fat Building is the most famous block as it was featured in Hollywood movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction”. You may have also seen this complex in the movie “Ghost in the Shell” as well.

The Monster Building is a go-to spot for Instagrammers in Hong Kong, so be prepared for a queue to get the best spot to take a picture. It is actually a residential community and local people literally live in the middle of the tourist attraction (not without complaining, so please think about residents and don’t be noisy).

Pretty iconic place! Isn’t it?
