October and November are the best months to visit this fascinating destination.


Upon arrival in Hong Kong, automatic sensors will take your temperature and if it is high, you will be required to have a quick health check. Vaccination certificates are usually not required. Check with your local carriers because requirements may change.

Tap water is soft in character and conforms to the guidelines for drinking-water quality recommended by the World Health Organization. However, most people prefer to drink bottled water. Mineral water including major imported brands is readily available from supermarkets and convenience stores.

Littering and spitting

Littering and spitting are illegal in Hong Kong and will incur on the spot fines. In Hong Kong the concept of 'face' is very important; avoid causing someone to 'lose face' by publicly insulting them or contradicting them in front of others as this is a general 'no no'. The Chinese have great respect for hierarchical relationships.

Electrical current is 220 volts, 50Hz. The UK-style 3-pin plugs are standard.


 A 10% service charge is usually added to restaurant bills, but waiters will still expect some loose change in addition to this. If no service charge is included, a 10% tip is expected. Taxi fares are rounded up to the nearest dollar (usually automatically by the driver).


City has strict laws to maintain environmental hygiene, including fixed penalty fines of HK$1,500 for littering or spitting.


It is a remarkably safe city by day or night. Friendly police officers patrol frequently. To ensure that your stay is pleasant and hassle free, please pay attention to the following points:
Keep your money, valuables and travel documents in a safe place, like the hotel room safe.

Attend to your belongings especially when you are in a crowded place.

Beware of people making dubious offers and those who may try to distract you and take away your belongings.

Be wary of people offering gambling or investment opportunities
