Flights to Hong Kong
All Hong Kong flights are routed through Hong Kong International Airport, located on Chek Lap Kok Island. Although the airport has only been open for commercial use since 1998, it has already received renown for its 24-hour service and passenger terminal building. The building contains 120 shops, as well as a Plaza Lounge that features such upscale amenities as nap rooms, beauty salons, showers, and massage stations. Those traveling with children on flights to Hong Kong will appreciate the Children’s Play Area and Television Lounge. When Hong Kong flights land, visitors can choose from ground transportation options including buses, high speed ferries, taxis, and trains. Hong Kong International Airport is a hub for Dragonair and Cathay Pacific.
Hong Kong Weather
When planning flights to Hong Kong, travelers should remember that Hong Kong weather can be unpredictable, changing instantly from tempest rain to glorious sunshine. Although Hong Kong’s climate is sub-tropic, the city boasts four distinct seasons. While summers and springs in Hong Kong can be hot and humid, with heavy rain and typhoons, fall and winter months are mild and pleasant. The ideal time to visit Hong Kong is in the fall, when temperatures cool to an average of 75°F and rainfall is unlikely. Winter temperatures average 60°F, with no chance of snow.
Getting Around Hong Kong
After their flights to Hong Kong, travelers can take cars, taxis, or buses across the Tsing Ma Bridge, which links the airport to mainland Kowloon and is one of the largest suspension bridges in the world. Because Hong Kong is densely populated, streets are often congested. Fortunately for those arriving on Hong Kong flights, the city’s public transportation network is one of the world’s best. Visitors should consider purchasing the Octopus Card, an electronic card accepted by most public transports. Hong Kong’s bus lines take travelers nearly everywhere, but for faster and more scenic travel the Star Ferry is a better option. Light Rail Transit and Mass Transit Railway are the fastest and most comfortable options, but they cost slightly more.
Hong Kong Attractions
Flights to Hong Kong transport travelers into a world where innovation collides with culture. The city’s metallic skyline glimmers against a mountain backdrop, and whether visitors are searching for timeless beauty or budding cosmopolitan energy, there is something for everyone. Popular attractions include:
- Victoria Peak, the best spot for a panoramic city view, made more magical at night as skyscrapers’ lights appear like stars against the dimming sun
- Nan Lian Garden, the perfect place to escape the city and appreciate the natural beauty of koi ponds, ornamental trees, and timber structures
- Dragon’s Back, a scenic hiking trail with stunning views of the bay area
- Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, a religious site featuring a traditional temple and housing over 12,000 Buddhas
- Sai Kung, a tiny fishing village with peaceful beaches and excellent seafood
Hong Kong When to Go
Although Hong Kong is subtropical, it has four distinct seasons. Fall—September through November—is the best time to visit, when temperatures are typically in the 70s, and days are sunny and bright. Look for shoulder season deals in late September. China’s National Day in October brings an influx of tourists from the mainland, as well as a spike in hotel occupancy and rates.
Winter—December through February—also provides a pleasant environment, with cooler temperatures in the 60s and little chance of heavy rain. It can get quite chilly, though, so pack a sweater and light jacket for those gloomier days. Chinese New Year, which falls in January or February, is a huge celebration in Hong Kong. It’s a marvelous spectacle, but you’ll pay a high price to enjoy it.
The spring months of March to May are unpredictable, and temperatures begin to rise from the 60s to the 80s with frequent rains. Nevertheless, shoulder-season deals can be had in March, and events are plentiful. The Hong Kong Rugby Sevens in late March attracts fans from around Asia and Europe, making it hard to find reasonably priced accommodation on these dates. Late March/early April features the high-profile Hong Kong International Film Festival. Those after a more local experience will enjoy the Cheung Chau Bun Festival, which takes place in April or May. A procession featuring costumed children on stilts makes its way through the streets, and towers built of buns stand in front of the local temple.
Summer—June through August—can be miserable, with temperatures in the 80s and humidity to match. Summer showers are frequent but don’t last long. Typhoons can hit Hong Kong at any time during spring or summer, bringing torrential rains.
