The Ritz-Carton Hong Kong opens up as the world’s highest hotel

Being a country which is house to a large number for five star properties, why does the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong garner so many eye-balls? Well for starters, it lies 500 meters above ground level, making it the world’s highest hotel. Offering the best panoramic views of Hong Kong, the Ritz-Carlton sits pretty on top of the 488 meter tall International Commerce Centre. While the hotel boasts of the Italian restaurant Tosca, the highlight of the restaurant is the Chocolate Library, which is a cacao-themed lounge which serves a chocolate high tea.
