I hate dealing with umbrellas- mainly because I never know what to do with them once I get inside somewhere. Well, in Hong Kong it's a pleasure. When you get inside a building, there's a little stand with plastic umbrella wraps. Dip your umbrella inside, and it will be covered. No dripping water everywhere. Then most businesses have umbrella stands for you to put your umbrella in while you do your business. Just don't forget to pick it up on your way out. I wish New York had this custom. Then there's the fact that most buildings in the business district connect. So if you're working in one building, you can leave your umbrella in the office, check out the multiple connecting buildings for a place for lunch, and head back to the office- all without getting soaked during one of their frequent storms.
here is a little tip about the climate change in hong kong.
Spring (March-April): it's humid here in Hong Kong, and you could feel sticky.
Summer(May-August) during summer time, it's the season of typhoon, and also a raining season. don't forget to take your umbrella with you or you could buy it on the street in case you need it. When the typhoon singal 8 or 9 is hoisted, some of the transpotation will stop its service around 1 or 2 hours after the announcement.
Autumn(September-October) it's dry and the weather is just nice, it is still hot here in Hong Kong during autumn, but it's not humid and it doesn't rain often. perfect for hiking and other outdoor activities.
Winter(Nov-Feb) it's cold here in Hong Kong, you couldn't tell from the temperate range here. It's windy here during winter, plus not many places have heater so, be sure that you have got enough coat with you, esp with wind-resistance function.
hope it helps and enjoy your stay in hong kong.

Hong Kong has a subtropical humid climate. January and February are the coolest months, with variable weather. During March and April the temperature and humidty began to rise. May through September is very hot and humid. From late July until mid-October there is a risk of typhoons which can cause structural damage and personal injury. The best months are October through December when humidity drops and sunny days are followed by cool nights
Climate : 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 averages 15C; at its warmest (late May to mid-September), it averages 27.7C. Humidity can get very high especially in summer and make you feel weary a lot quicker. Living there you find your 'whites' go yellow and your 'blacks' get mildewy.
When is the BEST TIME to visit Hongkong? Definitely NOT from June to August! The weather during these months is HOT... very HOT... and you'd perspire alot too. Yuks! In case you're wondering why I'm not heeding my own advice and was here in August.... Well, I came here for the SHOPPING. August is their SALE TIME, you see.
The BEST time to come is from October to December. Actually, December is the best period when the temperatures can dip to 10 degrees celcius or lower. You can then whip out all your lovely autumm wear and flaunt it. And they will love you for being soooo fashionable.
once a year, dun miss out!
it usually in march because of the weather is good for blossom flowers
