One of the things that is a must do when visiting Hong Kong is afternoon tea. With some many hotels/restaurants/pastry shops all offering their each individual take on afternoon tea, it is a tough decision to make. During Cindy & Wenting’s (my childhood buddies) visit, I suggested that we try out the afternoon tea at The Ritz-Carlton ICC for the view. It is an excellent alternative to paying the 150HKD($20 USD) per person for the SKY 100 observation deck on top of the ICC.
The entrance to The Lounge & Bar of The Ritz-Carlton was thoroughly modern and very flashy.
Located on the 102nd floor, it offered a bird’s-eye view of Hong Kong. If you want to sit by the window, reservations need to be made a month in advance. Or you could just walk up to the window and admire the view as we did.
Beautiful presentation. But sadly mediocre in taste. You are paying for the atmosphere and the view after all.
The Ritz-Carlton is a good place to take your out of town guests. But I would skip ordering the the afternoon set and go for some drinks and appetizers instead.
