There really is all to play for on a holiday to Hong Kong. Skim the surface with a fortnight flitting from one uber-chic skylounge to the next – with a stop in at a groundbreaking restaurant on route – and you’ll not feel even a momentary sense of FOMO. The richness of that experience alone should lure you here. Dig a little deeper though and there’s a rich seam of hidden secrets to chip away at. Secret codes and doors hide speakeasies – a leftover niche of bars from the prohibition days. Museums have logged every twist and turn in Hong Kong’s tumultuous past for safekeeping. And, though the bright and shiny lights of Disneyland may be far more appealing – a mix of the two makes for a far more rounded stay.

Explore further still and there’s an expanse of territories for you to conquer. Hiking in the hills, beachcombing on the shores, island hopping and some urban exploring too. Yes, the shiny skyscrapers are a little too businesslike for most tastes. Which is why you’ll be ambling around the far more relate-able Kowloon where all walks of life carry on around you. Night markets, neon-lit and moody streets, street food smells that will break all but the steeliest of will powers and a hint of Japanese kawaii-cuteness here and there. Hong Kong is yours for the taking.

High temps in Hong Kong...

As with all subtropical spots, summers can be sticky at best. So, while summer may be the best time to visit Hong Kong – expect humidity.

Winters are mild, compared to say, the UK. To catch Hong Kong between soaring heat and rising rainfall, visit in March. October’s a great weather bet, too.

Discover the real Hong Kong

Hong Kong is no ordinary place. Even getting around can be a novelty. And while we would suggest a wee go on the outdoor escalator system, Hong Kong really has so much more to offer. Wishing trees, a pirate cave and a hillside littered with abandoned statues rank among the quirkier options. And, we’ve not even got started on the ‘must sees’…

Abandon all of your Hong Kong plans, you’ll be too busy flitting from one food spot to the next to sightsee. In a destination glittering with Michelin stars it might seem odd to bypass those artfully decorated plates in favour of street food. Your best bet? Nibble your way through Hong Kong’s entire menu.
