Industrious, vibrant and culturally diverse
Hong Kong can be sampled or feasted upon depending on your length of stay. If you do nothing else in this city, be sure to catch the tram up to The Peak. Admiring the view from the highest point on Hong Kong Island is one experience you won't want to miss. For many a visit to Hong Kong is an excuse to indulge in a shopping holiday with eclectic markets boasting colour, bargains and luxury. Trading here is a perfected art. Antiques, silk, porcelain, handicrafts, electronics and fashion may be found amid a Hong Kong haul.
Foodies will also be licking their lips at a holiday in Hong Kong. The city offers thousands of tasty morsels, frequently consumed as dim sum – steamed, fried or baked parcels. There are about 2,000 items in the full range; more than enough to whet the largest appetite! A visit to Hong Kong needn't be all about the city either. Try heading to Lantau Island to visit the Po Lin Monastery and 'big Buddha,' laze on Silver Mine Bay Beach or hike 2 hours to Lantau Peak. Back in the city, Hong Kong Island's Victoria Park can give you some 'green time' too. If you're there early enough there are free tai chi classes.
Hong Kong has a handy check-in service available at Kowloon and Central Airport Express train stations. The free service is ideal if you are on a stopover, allowing you to check-in for your flight with your luggage and continue on enjoying your time in Hong Kong before heading to the airport.
When to go
As a tropical destination, Hong Kong enjoys relatively warm temperatures all year round. June to September is the hottest time when the city experiences humidity and tropical storms, while November to February is dryer and slightly cooler. With much of the city’s experiences taking place in air-conditioned comfort though, Hong Kong can really be enjoyed year round. Instead, consider timing your holiday in Hong Kong around one of the city’s events such as the lantern festival in September, dragon boat festival in June or Hong Kong Sevens in March.
