Cheap Flights to Hong Kong

Hong Kong, a frenetic city full of life and lights, has long been an outpost for transit, business and pleasure. It is where the East meets the West, modernity meets traditionalism, and where skyscrapers fight for space amongst tree-covered mountains.

See the city of Hong Kong

Something-for-everyone is a phrase often used for holiday destinations, but here in Hong Kong, the phrase rings true. Culture vultures can take the 120 year old funicular railway from Garden Road to the top of Victoria Peak, where the natural beauty of the forested mountain stands in stark contrast to the glass-faceted skyline of contemporary Hong Kong. You can also learn about the city’s past by stopping at the Museum of History, or get a feel for Hong Kong’s creative culture at the Museum of Art.

Shopaholics can indulge in a good dose of retail therapy from the cheap and cheerful Temple Street Night Market in Kowloon, to the kitsch bazaar of Tsim Sha Tsui, and then head to the shopping nerve centre of the city; Causeway Bay, where you will find towering and glamorous malls like Pacific Place and IFC.

Families can find more than enough entertainment at Disneyland Hong Kong, or take to the sea and tour the Sha Chau and Lung Kwu Chau Marine Park for a chance to spot the endangered ‘pink’ dolphins.

Foodies can pick up cheap eats and local delicacies from street vendors in Mong Kok, near the Ladies’ Market. Eat dim sum in a traditional Hong Kong tea house, like Lin Heung, or try the spicy Sichuan cuisine in the Chinese eateries. If you don’t want to end the night at dinner, you will find entertainment in the form of chic rooftop bars or hip clubbing venues in Lan Kwai Fong.

Island hop in Hong Kong

Though the big city is what most people think of when they imagine Hong Kong, the municipality is actually made up of hundreds of little islands that all have their own personality. See Lantau Island and the traditional Tai-O fishing village, or soak in the sun on Hung Shing Yeh beach on Lamma Island, both of which are only short boat trip away from the city.

When should you go?

A lot of Hong Kong’s attractions are indoors, so depending on what type of holiday you’re after, you can visit anytime. However, if you plan to spend a decent amount of time exploring the outdoor features of the archipelago, then visiting in the months between October and December is the most temperate time of year to visit. You will find June through September the weather becomes humid, and sits around 32-33°C with high chances of storms and rain.
