Hong Kong Travel Guide


Hong Kong Tour PackagesWelcome to HongKong - Foon Ying (Cantonese)

HongKong, officially the HongKong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is a territory located on China's south coast, 60 km (37 mi) east of Macau on the opposite side of the Pearl River Delta. It is surrounded by the South China Sea on the east, south, and west, and borders the city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province to the north over the Sham Chun River.

HongKong is divided into a number of contrasting districts. The territory's 1,104 km2 (426 sq mi) land area consists primarily of Hong Kong Island, Lantau Island, Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories as well as some 260 other islands.

HongKong Island was the site of the original British settlement.
Kowloon is the peninsula jutting south towards Hong Kong Island. It is the most populous area in Hong Kong and at one time it was the most densely populated place in the world.
The New Territories, named by the British officials when leased from the Chinese government in 1898, are a curious mix of farms, abandoned villages, industrial installations, mountainous country parks and new towns that have populations the size of small cities.
The Outlying Islands are the 260 other islands in the territory ranging from Lantau  (twice the size of Hong Kong Island) to rocks poking out of the sea.

Factoid: "Kowloon literally means nine dragons and refers to the eight hills that were once visible before the skyscrapers took the view away. Legend has it that the ninth dragon was the boy emperor who counted the hills." Read More Facts about Singapore

Name: The English-language name "HongKong" is an approximate phonetic rendering of the Hakka or Cantonese name , meaning "fragrant harbour" or "incense harbour".

The original "fragrant harbour" was a small inlet between the island of Ap Lei Chau and the south side of Hong Kong Island, now known as Aberdeen Harbour in English, but still called "Heung Gong Tsai" (Little Hong Kong) in Cantonese. The fragrance came from incense grown to the north of Kowloon that was stored around Aberdeen Harbour for export, before the development of Victoria Harbour.

When to Go

Hong Kong is an all-year-round destination. It enjoys a mild climate from the middle of September to the end of February, while the weather from May to mid-September is rather warm and humid. Eighty per cent of Hong Kong's precipitation occurs between May and September, with August registering the highest rainfall. For a detailed weather forecast.

Best time to visit HongKong: October, November and most of December are the best months to visit Hong Kong; the skies are clear and the sun shines. The June to August heat/rain combo might push your endurance but there's a lot of sunshine and, after all, it's summer. Hotels tend to offer substantial discounts outside the high seasons of March-April and October-November. Travel can be difficult during Chinese New Year in late January/early February.

What to Pack while travelling to Singapore

What to Pack

HongKong's subtropical climate means you won't be needing the winter woollies for most of the year. Loose-fitting cotton clothing generally fits the bill. The exception is from mid-December to February, when the mercury might fall to a mild 10oC (50oF). But even in the summer, it pays to bring along a light sweater - air-conditioning in some restaurants and cinemas is often turned up high. Rain showers are possible during the rainy season (around May to September), so also be sure to pack a light waterproof jacket.

  • Sunscreen with high SPF (Sun Protection Factor)

  • Stout shoes for pounding the sightseeing

  • Sunglasses / Hat or Cap for shade from the sun

  • Light cotton clothing

  • Insect Repellent

  • Bathing Suits

  • Credit Card (Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Diners Club, and Eurocard are accepted)
