Best time to visit

Hong Kong is a place with multiple personalities due to being both Cantonese Chinese and having been under British colonization. Hong Kong meaning Fragrant Harbor in Cantonese is a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People’s Republic of China. Today, the former British colony is a leading tourism destination for China’s increasingly affluent mainland population. It is an important hub in East Asia with global connections to many of the world’s cities. It is a unique destination that has absorbed people and cultural influences from places as diverse as Vietnam and Vancouver and proudly proclaims itself to be Asia’s World City.

Climate

Hong Kong has a sub-tropical climate but is cooled in winter by sea breezes. Summer (June to September) is long, humid and hot with temperatures often exceeding 32°C (90°F) and with nighttime temperatures that do not drop below 25°C (77°F). Typhoons usually occur between June and September and can bring a halt to local business activities for a day or less (see natural disaster section).

Winters are generally very mild, with daytime temperatures of 18-22°C (64–72°F) but with nights dipping into ten °C (50°F) and below sometimes, especially in the countryside. Christmas in Hong Kong is considered warm compared with many other Northern Hemisphere countries. Chinese New Year is notorious for cold (10°C/50°F), wet weather; this is because winter in Hong Kong tends to start mild and dry and then turn a bit cool and wet later, though the cool weather is brief.

Spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November/December) have an average temperature between 21-24°C (70-5°F). Autumn is probably a more comfortable season as spring tends to be more humid and rainy.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Hong Kong for great weather is autumn (September to mid-December). You’ll have the pleasure of getting the best weather conditions. Humidity is at its lowest during these months. Temperatures are still warm from the summer, around 21°C in the evening and 27°C during the day.
