I've had two good friends go and move to Hong Kong for work and got to go and visit. I was always told by both that if I did not come before May, not to come then again by October, because it is just too darn hot & humid. There may be savings to be had on air/hotels on account of the weather but for me, well, I wouldn't survive that kind of heat (my friend had to keep a de-humidifier in her apartment running at all times) as I am not very tolerant physically of that kind of heat. But that's just me. Some people do very well and get along just fine; I'm just a fainting daisy!! But May, June, July, Sept are indeed, very hot & humid in Hong Kong.
I was in Hong Kong last July 2008 to have a short vacation and at the same time, to shop for good buys. I was so lucky I guess because I was able to find some good finds at bargain prices. I might go back there on August to shop again but I think it will be a rainy month.
Hong Kong is an all-year-round destination. The most popular time to visit is from the middle of September to the end of February, when the weather is cooler. At its coolest (mid-December to February), the temperature may fall to 10oC (50oF); at its warmest (late May to mid-September), it averages 28oC (82oF) but may reach 33oC (91oF).
Hong Kong is located in the subtropical region and as such the place witness hot and humid summers.The most popular time to visit is from the middle of September to the end of February, when the weather is cooler.So,it is good that you get your flight and hotel reservations done in advance if you're planning a trip to Hong Kong.
