The best time to visit Hong Kong, SAR is from October to late February. During this period the humidity will be at the lowest and temperatures are mild i.e ranging from 20°C to 27°C. Moreso, the Spring Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations are famous visitors and they take place during the months of January to February.  To foreigners, Hong Kong can raise a great deal of questions: “Is it part of China or not?” “Is it one island or two?” “Do they speak English or Mandarin? Or then again both?” And outsiders have a valid justification to ask them. This city, made of different islands, got back to China’s possession in 1997 after more than 100 years of British occupation. Upon its reunification with China, Hong Kong added certain stipulations that give a one of a kind level of autonomy. Thus, English and Chinese are the official languages.

Hong Kong separates itself from its Chinese counterparts like Shanghai and Beijing with its vibrant, multifaceted culture and shocking cityscape. This British-Chinese half breed astounds visitors with its striking juxtaposition of thick skyscrapers and rich landscapes. From sandy beaches to rugby pitches, there’s more natural air than most travelers suspect. And, obviously, as a-list city, Hong Kong boasts various urban diversions, for example, culinary problem areas and galleries. After visiting Hong Kong, the only question you may be asking is: “Why didn’t I arrive sooner?”



Hong Kong will have recently recuperated from a long, hot summer and maybe even a typhoon. But, don’t stress yourself: The city’s pace never eases back down. And from October to December, you’ll appreciate daytime temps in the 70s with average room rates. In any case, avoid the primary seven day stretch of October, when many mainland Chinese vacationers flood the city during this national holiday.

Key Events:

  • National Day (October 1) 
  • Hong Kong WinterFest (November-January)


While cool temperatures will discourage a few travelers, others (particularly Chinese sightseers) will run to Hong Kong for the holidays. It’s important to realize the hotel will knock up the rates around the two New Years celebrations. Temps usually stay in the 60s and low 70s during the day. In any case, note that your photos from Victoria Peak may not come out perfectly as fog clears over the harbor the most, during March.

Key Events:

  • Chinese New Year (February)
  • Hong Kong Arts Festival (February-March)
  • Hong Kong International Film Festival (March-April)


For travelers wishing to avoid both winter’s climate and summer’s mugginess, spring is an exceptional time to visit, however the probability of fog waits around till the end of April. Throughout the spring, room rates are manageable, except if you hit the tourist wave that accompanies the national holidays.

Key Events:

  • Hong Kong International Film Festival (March-April)
  • Hong Kong Cultural Celebrations (April-May)


In the summer, Hong Kong is hot, moist and typhoon-prone. The summer weather doesn’t dissuade travelers and push down lodging rates like it once did. So on the off chance that you are searching for a bargain (or some dry weather), look somewhere else.

Key Events:

  • Dragon Boat Festival (June)
  • Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong (July)
  • Mid-Autumn Festival (September)
