With some of the best hotels on the planet, Hong Kong has an amazing mix of both colonial and Asian heritage. A Special Administrative Zone of the PRC (Peoples Republic of China), the former British colony is a major tourism destination for the increasing numbers of Chinese middle class.
With a sub-tropical climate, Hong Kong’s summer is long, hot, and humid, with one of the best times to visit being Autumn.
For travellers that feel the cold, take note that many public buildings aren’t heated, but the opposite is true that in Summer, many buildings are air conditioned.
