Many travelers are drawn to Hong Kong, with its astounding skyline, fascinating colonial history, and Buddhist culture. It is also famous for its cuisine and fast-paced night life. Before you plan your trip to the southern reaches of China, be sure to plan your itinerary carefully.
According to US News & World Report, the best time to visit Hong Kong is between October and December. During this time, the city will still be active but the daytime temperatures will have settled into the 70s and accommodation prices will have dropped. Travelers should be wary of visiting during the first week of October, which is a popular time for mainland Chinese tourists. January through March offers temperatures in the 60s and a great deal of fog, which can make photographing the sights less fruitful. April to May is still a foggy period but the temperatures are manageable and the room rates reasonable. June through September is the most challenging time to visit, with hot, muggy temperatures and typhoons always a possibility.
