Peak season

There is no bad time to book flight tickets to Hong Kong but be aware the peak season runs from October to December. This is when many people book cheap flights to Hong Kong as the weather is milder with temps hovering around the mid-20s and there is very little rain. The Lunar New Year (late January or early February) is also a busy period, so expect the price of flights to Hong Kong to be more expensive. Book accommodation well in advance for this period. Hong Kong’s subtropical climate is at its most pleasant during the shoulder seasons of autumn (October to November) and spring (March to May) and are a good time to search for cheap flight deals.

Off Season

Summer (May to September) is uncomfortably hot with temps in the 30s, high humidity and heavy rain. Since air conditioning in shops and hotels is turned up to the max, it’s recommended you bring a few extra layers you can easily put on and remove. Winters can be colder than expected, so a coat and warm clothing might be necessary in the rural areas. Typhoon season (May to November), whilst producing cheap flights to Hong Kong, can make the weather unpredictable.

When is the best time to book a flight to Hong Kong?

The city’s traditional Chinese culture is at its most vibrant during the various colourful festivals that take place throughout the year and these are a good reason to book cheap flights to Hong Kong. The Lunar New Year features an impressive fireworks display over the harbour, while the religious festival Tin Hau (May/June) honours various deities. The Lantern Festival is held in September/October, the Dragon Boat Carnival in June/July and the Bun festival on Cheung Chau island in May. Book flight tickets well in advance if you are visiting for these festivals.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Hong Kong?

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) is situated on the island of Chek Lap Kok and a busy gateway for mainland China.

Train services: the city centre (Hong Kong station) is easily reached by the public transport system MTR in just 24 minutes; a single journey ticket costs HKD$100 (AUD$17). The MTR operates the Airport Express and Light Rail networks and trains run every 12 minutes from early morning to late at night.

Taxi: Colour coded taxis (urban ones are red) and limousines are also available from outside the arrivals hall.

What is good to know if travelling to Hong Kong?

  • The “musts”: a ride on the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, a tram ride to The Peak, a visit to the Jade Market (a trap but a hugely entertaining excursion), a drink in the Captain’s Bar of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
  • Ocean Park on Hong Kong Island leaves Disneyland in the shade, in our opinion. The marine theme park has exciting rides – such as the cable-car ride that travels between the Lowland Gardens and Marine Land – but the stars of Ocean Park are the Asian animals. The Giant Panda Adventure is where you’ll see the cute red pandas, and in the HKJC Giant Panda Habitat An An and Jia Jia, the giant pandas, live. 
  • For a short beach break relax on Cheung Sha Beach, on the south coast of Lantau. To get there, take Ferry No 6 from Central to Mui Wo. It’s a 25-minute journey, and the taxi ride to the beach will add just 10 minutes to that. 
  • Wan Chai is not the sleazy part of town it once was. Now it’s one of Hong Kong’s edgiest quarters. You’ll find some great value if you’re prepared to rifle through the piles of clothes in the export shops. It’s a good place to take the pulse of “local” HK. Spring Garden Lane and Wanchai Road are where locals shop for fruit and vegetables. 
  • The Tian Tan Buddha sits 34 metres high at Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. It’s the largest, seated, outdoor Buddha in the world. 
  • Tap Mun Chau, off the coast of Sai Kung, is a tiny island, home to just 100 or so people these days. The decline in the fishing industry forced many residents to leave the island and seek a living elsewhere. Today, there are a few little eateries dotted about the island. The top of the hill is a popular place to set up camp. The sunsets and night skies are beautiful.
  • From kau kee beef brisket to curry fish balls, it’s no secret how plentiful and popular the food delicacy is. For all you foodies, here’s how to eat your way around Hong Kong like a local.
  • With Asia Pacific being a popular destination choice for tourists, we understand the importance of finding cheap flights and affordable deals, so here they are – the most affordable destinations in Asia Pacific revealed.
