Sweeping views from highrise spots are top of mind in this week’s look at luxury real estate around the world. From the mountain scenery of Valais, Switzerland, to waterway views of Hong Kong’s southern district of Tai Tam, here’s a look at what about $3.75 million buys in three luxury housing markets around the world.

During the summer, the area is home to the annual Valais Drink Pure Alphorn Festival.
This rustic-chic apartment has a beautiful mountain view and ideal proximity to the main lift station to Four Valleys — the highest point of the ski area.
