Packing tips

If you are travelling in the springtime or the autumn remember it can get chilly, especially in the evening. T-shirts and short sleeves can be fine but a coat or jacket will be more suitable for later in the day.

In the summer the average temperatures sits at close to 30°C, it gets very humid and there can be a substantial amount of rain. Therefore, pack some lightweight linen clothes that allow you and your skin to breathe and do not forget to invest in some waterproof clothing to protect you from the tropical rainfall.

Mosquitoes can be a problem in summer, especially in the greener spaces such as Hong Kong Park, so make sure you pack some insect repellent.

Winter travellers should pack for colder temperatures so think long sleeved and probably leave the shorts at home. Shopaholics should think about bringing an extra bag as Hong Kong is the shopping capital of Asia and bargains are to be found at every turn.
