Hong Kong: Lunch Date at Ritz Carlton CAFE 101

I shared with recently my visual diary of my visit to Hong Kong, from exploring Kowloon and Hong Kong Island as well as experiencing Hong Kong’s famous Symphony of Lights on Victoria Harbor. I also managed to squeeze in a day trip from Hong Kong to visit Big Buddha on Lantau Island, this is where you will find Big Buddha perched on a mountain. I was in the city to see a friend of mine get married but while I was there I took the time to explore as I was flying solo on this trip. A few days after the wedding I caught up with the bride and groom for afternoon tea in the beautiful Ritz Carlton Hotel.

Stepping out of the car at the hotel you are immediately drenched in stunning views of the Victoria Harbor. Tittering quickly out of the humidity of the city to seek refuge in the hoteair-conditionedoned surroundings. Beautiful and elegantly decorated, Cafe 103, sits on the 103rd floor of the Ritz Carlton. 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.

Views To Get Lost In Conversation…

After getting lost in conversation it was crunch time. Mouth-watering and tantalizing 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 to the Ritz Carlton for High Tea. An exquisite array of choice of food, after tiring of savoring 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…

    That looks absolutely incredible and so luxurious! I was actually meant to visit Hong Kong in August, but unfortunately it didn't work out. Strangely enough, your fantastic post is making me feel better about it rather than worse 🙂

      Shame, but you can still head over there and get your friends to come so you have a local guide 🙂

    I've never been to Hong Kong, I hope to visit one day. I love the Ritz. We've stayed in a few, and the food and accommodations are fantastic.

    Wow – what a view! Plus, the macarons look good too.

    That plate of the berries, macarons and desserts is spectacular. What a great combination of excellent food and views. I would probably overstay my welcome by a couple of hours just for the scenery.
