Those of you following me on twitter (@thepurplewindow) know I was in Hong Kong last weekend for my second wedding anniversary. The short trip made for a perfect getaway and even the non-stop rains didn't dampen my spirits.
Rain or no rain it didn't matter because I didn't feel like leaving my hotel room. I am usually the annoying, jumpy, over enthusiastic tourist walking around with a map but this time, I don't think my lonely plant encounter series book made it out of my bag.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Hong Kong is the highest hotel in the world, it starts from the 102nd floor of the International Commerce Centre and goes till the top of the building, all the way to the 118th floor. This skyscraper is a new addition to the Hong Kong skyline, located in West Kowloon it opened in 2011.
The experience begins with your arrival at the airport as a Chauffer receives you and hands you an iPad in the car to Facetime with the concierge to plan the rest of the day. Upon arrival you are whisked away to your sky-high ultra modern room with jaw-dropping views.
