WITH A NAME LIKE 'THREE ON CANTON' MOST WOULD ASSUME THE JOINT IS IN CANTON, CHINA, UP THE PEARL RIVER NOT TOO FAR FROM HONG KONG AS THE HONG KONGESE SPEAK CANTONESE ANYWAY.
But Three on Canton is on Canton Road, across Victoria Harbour on Kowloon side facing Hong Kong island aka Central.
Three on Canton is the third floor (hence the name) of the newly revamped Gateway Hotel on Canton Road which houses all the best designer boutiques the way Central across the Fragrant Harbour does.
