Where old meets new

Summer in Hong Kong lasts from June through to August. These months see soaring temperatures and high humidity. Thankfully for visitors (and locals), most places will benefit from air-conditioning making these months still a good option for visiting. If you are looking for more comfortable temperatures and less rainfall, October to April are the best months to visit Hong Kong. The winter months (November to February) are the coolest and are great if you are happy to wrap up and explore the city.
British citizens don't need a visa for Hong Kong.
It’s common for hotels and restaurants to add a 10% service charge to the bill.
The official language of Hong Kong is Chinese. English is widely spoken too.
Hepatitis A, polio, and typhoid immunisations, plus malaria tablets, are recommended. Please speak to your GP for more information.
