My solo tour around Hong Kong for a few days were cut short as I finally got to see the newly weddings a few days after the nuptials; the main reason for my trip to Hong Kong was to attend the wedding of one of my close friends. Days after the wedding, I met the happy couple at the Ritz Carlton for lunch to discuss all things wedding as well as how my visit in the city is going.
Stepping out of the car at the hotel you are immediately drenched in stunning views of the Victoria Harbour. Tittering quickly out of the humid to seek refuge in the hotels air conditioned surroundings. Beautiful and elegantly decorated, Cafe 103, sits on the 103rd floor of the Ritz as its name implies. Ritz Carlton is in the International Commerce Centre(ICC) tower and occupies floors 102 to 118. Arriving early I was shown to the table. At this point I am now 490 meters above sea leave with truly phenomenal views of the city and coastline of Hong Kong and beyond.
After getting lost in conversation it was crunch time. Mouth-watering and tantalising culinary delights of pure craftsmanship that it was almost sinful to devour. If you happen to find yourself in Kowloon and after eating your way through the food district do not forget to extend that eating tour to the Ritz. An exquisite array of choice of food, after tiring of savouring the luxurious selection it was time to tuck in! Hong Kong was fastly turning into a memorable trip. Lunching to views of a bustling Hong Kong in the ICC tower, the world's 7th tallest building and one known for the largest light and sound show on a single building. My sea-view room at the Marriott sat almost directly across Hong Kong Island so I was in full view of the ICC light show that happened every evening. I could stay and marvel at the views forever but it was time to do more exploring...
