Scones, cakes, and cookies are best taken with an afternoon tea. You lounge back in your high chair and tell yourself you're living like royalty. But why not live those dreams to these places? True that you can set up a little space in your home, but afternoon teas in these restaurants, hotels, and cafés topped that dream.

Raffles Singapore. Delight yourself in some English afternoon tea at Raffles Hotel in their Tiffin Room. Other than your little scones, sandwiches, and pastries, they also offer dim sums, sausages and curry pies all splayed with their tasty jams and fillings. The Raffles Hotel offers an array of international dishes with a touch of Asian cuisine. Catch their afternoon tea at 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended to be here.

Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa. Afternoon tea? Try an all-day tea serving at Mount Nelson. Cakes and creams added with Africa's milk tart called "melktert" will surely add that great local flavor South Africa has to offer. Enjoy your drink in their lounge, garden fountain or terrace! You can also order a plate of smoked salmon, roast beef, or tomato tarts.

Ashford Castle, Cong, Ireland. Get to drink tea like a real royalty at Ashford Castle. They've been doing tea rituals for almost 150 years, which means they've mastered the art of high teas in the afternoon. Scones and cakes lashed with cream, and homemade jam made tea drinking even more delightful. The tea place, Connaught Room, has even the original silver tea set of Lord and Lady Ardilaun during their 25th anniversary. According to 10 Best, you can even get to see the head pastry chef hand-pick flowers from the gardens to decorate the cakes you ordered.

The Ritz, London, UK. The famed restaurant has been serving high teas for more than a century. There are nearly 20 loose-leaf teas to choose from at the Palm Court amid the silver wares and elegant interiors. A music ensemble will also delight you as you take a sip and enjoy pastries to your pleasure. You can opt for the traditional high tea dining or the champagne tea afternoon experience. But whatever it is, The Ritz London will surely bring the royalty in you.

Erawan Tea Room, Bangkok, Thailand. Want something more than just scones and cream cakes? The Erawan Tea Room offers something more cultural and local inclined dishes like its SomTam spicy Papaya salad, sticky rice, and a couple of satays. Of course, the traditional British desserts are served, and one has an exceptional choice of international and locally produced tea leaves. According to Skyscanner, "it's the perfect spot to escape the chaos, refuel and experience the Thai take on a British classic."
