The former British colony has a distinctive character influenced by its long history as a cultural crossroads and its large population of expats, truly living up to its moniker as Asia's World City.
Hong Kong is a welcoming destination, though it’s not uncommon for first-time visitors to feel overwhelmed by its crowded streets, monumental skyscrapers, and exotic fragrances that emanate from restaurants and street stalls. This sensation though is quickly replaced by awed appreciation of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. They are the picture of a modern metropolis – organised, safe and immaculate – and looking beyond the city to its lush surrounds presents a different side of Hong Kong that more travellers should take the time to explore.
Even with all these experiences, it's the people that make Hong Kong holidays truly unforgettable; from the serene sight of locals practising tai chi in the park to the raucous chatter you’ll no doubt take part in at the markets.
When to go
Hong Kong's mild winters make it a popular escape over the Christmas and New Year period, especially with so many establishments getting into the spirit of the season. The humid summer that lasts from June to September is less popular, especially as the hot days are often accompanied by monsoons.
Spring (from March to May) and autumn (from October to December) offer the most comfortable climates and are when when most major cultural events descend on the city. Hong Kong is at its busiest over Chinese New Year, when prices increase and most businesses shut down for several days, so this occasion is best avoided unless you're eager to see the festivities first hand.

Best time to fly
Most international travellers head to Hong Kong in spring and autumn, when temperatures are less stifling and the monsoons have passed. Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year are generally the busiest and most expensive times to travel, but they also offer the chance to see the city come alive in celebration.
