Best times to visit

Spring Season

Spring is a lovely time to explore Hong Kong. The weather from March to May is warm, humid, and often overcast. May is the hottest month of spring, with showers marking the start of the May to September monsoon. 

Summer Season

June to August sees soaring temperatures and humidity levels that will make you thankful for air-conditioning. Meanwhile, frequent thunderstorms and showers bring around 80 percent of Hong Kong’s annual rainfall. Both factors make summer the best value for money. 

Autumn Season

Autumns are short in Hong Kong, lasting from September to October. Temperatures are still warm without getting too hot, humidity drops to more comfortable levels, and rainfall is significantly reduced compared to the summer months, although showers do occur.   

Winter Season

November to February is the coolest and driest time of year. Days are mild and evenings can be chilly, so it’s a good idea to pack some warmer clothing. Many people consider winter the best season to visit Hong Kong.
