View from the 101st Floor!

I received a lot of e-mails about my last post, mainly around how high is 101 stories in a skyscraper? Well it is approx 1/2 a kilometer tall (500meters). And what does that feel like? Well the best way to visualise what that means is to look at the view from a window......

And to make the foodies among readers envious, have a good look at the following menu. The food was superb and we shared these magnificent dishes and fantastic Murdoch James wines with a full house. The service was superb also, making this a very successful evening. Recommend the restaurant and the experience to anyone visit Hong Kong and looking for a wonderful place to dine.

Some more facts on the building itself. It is actually 118 stories tall, a five star hotel occupies floors 102 to 118. The world's highest swimming pool and bar (OZONE) can be found on the top 118th floor. The express elevators take you from ground level to floor 101 in less than 50 seconds - that's fast! Try not to think about the big hole under the lift floor though!

  3. How is it that just anybody can write a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything incredibly impressive –more like youve painted a pretty picture over an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not really say anything?
