Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear I went to Hong Kong in May, being cold in New Zealand when i left i worn jeans, good plan (Not), arriving in Hong Kong at night was fine not too hot nor too cold. In the morning woke up at 6am and got into my jeans. By about 10am after walking around Hong Kong the jeans were ready to come off big time the humidity rose to about 110% (well it felt that). Make sure you take warm clothes for out and about at night, and summery clothes for the day time. It can get hot!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Generally other than a few weeks over Christmas/New year, Hong Kong is hot and humid! Light clothing, good walking shoes are essential. However in those winter months over Christmas it can get cold, bring long pants and a jacket.
Luggage and bags Travel light, you can buy clothes there. I like the Chinese Arts and Crafts store in Tsim Shat Sui-the short sleve shirts are wonderful. See also the silk under shirts.
It is a mild climate in spring, fall and winter. You will see the Chinese wearing scarves and winter coats while you are either in shirt sleves or a light jacket. Very hot and muggy in the summer. But, don't forget a swim suit because Hong Kong has some great beaches.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Great place for walking so bring walking shoes. They are exxpensive to buy here so bring yours. Treat yourself to a pair of handmade shoes at Vogue Shoes in Tsim Shat Shu.
Luggage and bags A resonable backpack
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear When visiting Hong Kong in the Summer, bring lots of sunscreen!!! The weather there is so HOT! HOT! HOT while we were there. Some cotton T-shirts, sleveless blouse, skirts and most important of all, good pair of walking shoes. You will walk alot in Hong Kong
Luggage and bags One with wheels and leave room for your purchases
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Dont pack any nice evening clothes if your a shopper Hong Kongs seven malls will entice you to purchase new clothes for your night on the town!
Three seasons in Hong Kong Hot, Hotter and Hottest but dont wear shorts when dining in fine Restaurants
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.
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.
'THE WILL TO WIN STARTS WITH THE VERY YOUNG'
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!
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!!!!
