As the final chapter of his “80 Stays Around the World” tour, Ratcliff will traverse Southeast Asia and China, staying at Ritz-Carlton hotels along the way and documenting his experience on social media. Ratcliff, an internationally known photographer, artist, writer and adventurer, will also engage with local and international social influencers, partnering with them to co-create content and share #RCMemories that will inspire travelers around the world.

From early March through May, Ratcliff will tour some of the most beautiful cities in Southeast Asia and China, with Hong Kong being the first stop. During his five-day stopover in Hong Kong from March 12 to 16, 2018, Ratcliff will immerse himself in an intimate photo walk and city excursion with local social influencers, Harimao Lee (@harimaolee) and Kelvin Yuen (@kelvin_yuen_), who will serve as guides and an ideal resource for Ratcliff, providing insider destination tips and a local lens on art and photography in Hong Kong.
