What to Pack

Hong Kong's subtropical climate means you won't be needing the winter woollies for most of the year. Loose-fitting cotton clothing generally fits the bill. The exception is from mid-December to February, when the mercury might fall to a mild 10oC (50oF). But even in the summer, it pays to bring along a light sweater - air-conditioning in some restaurants and cinemas is often turned up high. Rain showers are possible during the rainy season (around May to September), so also be sure to pack a light waterproof jacket.

Of course, what you need to pack depends on what you plan to do in Hong Kong. Swimwear for the beaches, stout shoes for pounding the sightseeing beat and smart casual wear for dinner are suggested. Formal suits are the norm for those visiting on business. Those planning on trawling the designer shopping malls and colourful night markets are advised to leave plenty of room in the suitcase - Hong Kong is a shopper's paradise.
