Situated on the South-East coast of China, Hong Kong is fast becoming a city that people are choosing to holiday in. It has made it on many short lists to be one of the most cosmopolitan and thriving cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why. Once being part of the British Colony, it has become a force to be reckoned with and is commonly known as a huge manufacturing hub in the East. However, there is much more to Hong Kong than meets the eye, so I thought it would be worth sharing with you some information about this city, and what you could do if you decided to visit some day soon. Perhaps it will make it onto your bucket list of destinations.
What’s the weather like
Did you know that Hong Kong has a subtropical climate? Which means that you can differentiate between every season. However, this is only one significant thing when it comes to weather that could impact your stay and holiday, and that is typhoons. A typhoon is a tropical storm that could include severe conditions such as tornados and hurricanes. They develop out to see and can have a huge impact when they reach land. Typhoon season is from May to November. Thankfully, there are responsive warnings in place, and you will find that you have plenty of warning is a typhoon is approaching, should you choose to travel within this period. Some people would regard the Autumn season as the best time to go, so don’t let the typhoon season put you off too much. With blue skies, warm temperatures and lovely breezes you won’t be disappointed.
Is it easy to get to?
Hong Kong is definitely an easy city to gain access to as the airport is literally so close to the city itself. Although it would still be wise to consider a Hong Kong airport transfer. It is often seen as a stop along the way for further to reach destinations such as Australia. But if you find yourself stopping by in this city, why not add a few nights to your trip so you can experience everything it has to offer?
What to do when you are there
If you want to enjoy everything this city has to offer then a walk around the harbour will not disappoint. However, there are plenty of sightseeing opportunities so make sure you plan the time you do have in the city. Things to consider would be The Peak, where you can experience some of the most breathtaking views of the sky-rise city. Or take a trip to the iconic Disneyland In Hong Kong itself.
Let’s talk about the food
If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie, then there are some dishes to try in Hong Kong that should be experienced when you go. From stuffed roast suckling pig to snake soup, you are bound to find something to excite those taste buds of yours.
Where to go from here
Of course, Hong Kong is a faraway destination so you may want to consider tagging it onto a holiday to destinations like the South Pacific Islands, New Zealand or Australia. The choice is yours.
