Sit on one of the little tables on the street and watch the world bustle by as you choose from Thai, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Japanese street stalls.

Here you can sip fine wines and cocktails, as you watch the ships and yachts dock, and take in the bright lights of the cityscapes below.

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.
