    Luggage and bags: Suitcases are fine. We took a small rucksack to carry around our essential guide book, wallet and light umbrella.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable casual for the day and smart casual for the evening. We felt slightly underdressed when leaving and returning to the hotel (Mandarin Oriental) in our shorts and t-shirts because most visitors were business people or their rich wives! We decided we would still stay there and still wear the same clothes if we were a lot richer and so rose above it!!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Don't need a bikini really. The only beach we went to was Shek O and a relax in the bar overlooking the beach was more suitable.

    Miscellaneous: Climate

    Hong Kong is hot and monsoonal in the summer(June-Sept)with particularly heavy rains in June and July, temperatures around 86F and high humidity. Wear medium weight clothes and take a light coat. Other months call for lightweight clothes.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It never gets too cold, even between December to February it will only drop to approx. +10 degrees C.
    It usually gets very warm during summer time reaching 30-35 degrees C and it's VERY humid. Bring lots of light loose clothes for your shopping and exploration trips aroung HK, something more casual for partying.
    If you are there on business it is usual to wear a more formal suit.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Just bring plenty of water esp if you are heading into China. Also if you are heading into mainland China you will need your vaccinations, very important!

    Hongkong skyline

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: although the temperatures are fairly high year around, it is absolutely necessary to bring a sweater or something warm with you, since the airconditioned buildings are chilly!!!!
