Owing to a subtropical climate, Hong Kong’s humid summer months are sauna-like. Prime timing for a trip falls around mid-October to late December, when temperatures are still mild and Chinese tourists swarming in for the week-long national holiday have left.
Wherever you look in the city, there is a story to be told that will take you back centuries: whether it’s in the traditional Chinese festivals, cultural arts, or family-run restaurants.
Hong Kong is one of the most talked-about dining destinations in the world: it’s where celebrity chefs from across the globe compete to showcase their talent and where diners come in droves to be the first to tuck in. But as densely packed as this city is with Michelin-starred restaurants and venues you’ll queue all night for, it also excels in something you’ll struggle to find anywhere else in the world—rich, local gems steeped in tradition, and humble, neighborhood family favourites.
For a country that is famed for its skyscrapers, Hong Kong often suprises holidaymakers with its hidden natural beauty. Venture beyond downtown and discover rugged mountains, bijou islands and indented coastline. Escape from it all right in the heart of the city.
Hong Kong is up there in the premier league when it comes to shopping, rubbing shoulders with London as one of the world's premier destinations for people with spending power. Home to celebrated designer malls, packed street markets, and a wealth of independent boutiques, Hong Kong offers the quintessential shopping experience.
