Proudly independent, with an inspired Chinese heritage, Hong Kong is so densely packed with things to see and do that you’ll want to come back to visit again and again. Our Experts can help you make the most of a brief stopover or plan a more in-depth holiday.

Getting Around Hong Kong

Getting around Hong Kong is a breeze with an excellent public transport system, but our recommendation is to explore on foot as you will discover a lot more that way.

When to Go to Hong Kong

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 drier and slightly cooler. With much of the city’s experiences taking place in air-conditioned comfort though, Hong Kong can really be enjoyed in every season. Instead, consider timing your holiday in Hong Kong around one of the city’s events such as the Chinese Lantern Festival in September, Dragon Boat Festival in June, or Hong Kong Sevens in March. For more inspiring ideas, ask your Flight Centre Travel Expert.
