InterContinental Hong Kong Afternoon Tea

One of the things that you must do when in Hong Kong is to have afternoon tea at InterContinental Hong Kong’s Lobby Lounge. It offers the complete package: Panoramic view of Hong Kong’s skyline, live band playing soothing love ballads, and an elegant space where you can savour premium sandwiches, warm scones and exquisite desserts while sipping fragrant tea.

When travelling for leisure, most people would want to check out the best eating places in that city – dining in a hotel restaurant is usually not the priority.

That is not surprising, given that the general perception of hotel food is crappy buffet food and lousy restaurants serving tasteless and expensive food. However, this is definitely not the case at InterContinental Hong Kong. I know I was just recently praising another InterContinental property, but I have good reason.

During my stay at InterContinental Hong Kong, I was impressed by their dining offerings. Not only is it home to  contemporary French cuisine at 2 Michelin Star SPOON by Alan Ducasse, it also has other fantastic restaurants such as Nobu – one of the most famous Japanese restaurants in the world – which serves innovative modern Japanese cuisine, and Yan Toh Heen - 1 Michelin Star Chinese restaurant that is known for its Cantonese specialities. The restaurants at InterContinental Hong Kong will please even the harshest critics.

I am a firm believer that staying in a good hotel completes the travel experience. Of course, quality comes at a price and many people would baulk at paying so much for a room. But when you get to enjoy the hotel’s amenities and have a good night’s rest, you will understand that the money is well-spent.

For me, one of the places to stay in Hong Kong has to be Intercontinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong. The location of the 5-star hotel makes it a favourite among businessmen and leisure travellers. It is positioned on the fringe of Tsim Sha Tsui and is within walking distance – just a 10 minutes walk to East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station – to the shopping, business and entertainment districts. Furthermore, the hotel offers breathtaking views of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour.
