Best time to go

The best times to head to Hong Kong are between May and July and between October and December.

Things to do

Start with the shopping: it's one of the best things about holidaying in Hong Kong. The tailors here are top notch and they can put together amazing dresses and suits to meet your exacting requirements. Hong Kong is boom town – and you'll see plenty of modern influences in the dizzying skyscrapers and modern malls. If you want to see the more traditional, Chinese side to the city, take the ferry to Kowloon, where you'll find busy markets, art galleries and some of the most spectacular light shows on the planet. For fun filled days out, go to Ocean Park or Disneyland.

Food and drink

The food in Hong Kong is one of the city's main attractions. Because of the varied colonial history, you'll find food influences here from all over the globe. Dine in everything from gourmet restaurants to fast food joints. The signature cuisine here is Cantonese: don't miss dim sum breakfasts, delicious noodles and delicate dishes that look as good as they taste. Eat it in first class restaurants or from steamy street stalls.

In the evening

Eating out in Hong Kong is a real treat, but you'll also find plenty of places to dance, drink and be entertained. Orchestra, ballet, light shows, superstar DJs, cocktail bars, luxury lounges, huge clubs, English style pubs and waterfront haunts: Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan city with a nightlife scene to suit just about every taste.

Health and entry requirements

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct travel insurance and vaccinations and / or special medication for your destination. Please consult your GP for advice at least one month ahead of travel. It is essential that you meet the visa and passport requirements for your chosen destination. Visit the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (http://www.fco.gov.uk) website for up to date entry requirements listed by country.
