Things to Do

During the summer months, the fine white beaches and the natural parks are wide open for your enjoyment. During rainy weather during the typhoon season, you can take refuge in the malls or one of the fine local museums.

Shopping: Though discounts and sales are available in Hong Kong all year round, the months of July, August, and December are the hottest months for shopping in Hong Kong.

Tung Wan Beach: This beach on Ma Wan Island is a great beach for tourists. It is one of about 30 of Hong Kong's well-managed public beaches that you can choose from. They have lifeguards, clean bathrooms, and shark nets.

But it is unique in Hong Kong for its combination of beautiful and interesting scenery, nearby attractions, and good restaurants and cafes. The safe, clean swimming beach and the facilities makes it especially good for families with children.

Hong Kong Global Geopark: Some small islands off the coast have amazing rock formations. These islands are unique and notable and are listed by UNESCO as a Geopark. To see these, contact us to book a boat tour. It is a chance to do some cruising in the sea and see beautiful scenery.

  • Great scenic views
  • Good beach restaurants
  • Part of Ma Wan Park
  • Next to Noah's Ark and Tsing Ma Bridge
  • One of the world's longest suspension bridges passes over it.

Hong Kong Space Museum: During summer's inclement weather, you can take refuge in the Space Museum on the Avenue of Stars along Victoria Harbor. The Space Shuttle's front end and the OMNIMAX projection dome are two interesting parts of the museum.

Travel: August isn't a busy travel month. Storms during the typhoon season occasionally disrupt travel though. Let us help you book flights.

Planning to visit hongkong by the end of august (25th to 30th) with 2 children age 7 and 11 and 1 infant, mainly interested in disney land, ocean theme park and victoria peak is it advisable to postpone the trip ( by end of december) because of heavy rains in august. Or go ahead with the current dates. Thankyou for your time
Dear Hussain, I checked the information from weather forecast bureau, it will rain in 7 days, but not details about the end of Aug.. In the end of December, it will be 15-20℃.It is not very cold, you could take some thick coat. I suggest you check the weather later to get the exact information before leaving for Hong Kong.

Hi, we plan to travel to Hongkong from the 10th to the 17th August. we have a child of 8yrs. Should we expect alot of rainfall this week as we plan to go both Ocean park at the start and Disneyland for the last 2 days. Also can you advise what kind of clothing to carry for all of us espcially for my daughter. Will it be hot enough to just be in shorts & T''s or leggings /jeans are better suited. Thanks
Dear Fabian Baptista, Based on the information from weather forecast bureau, it will be 28℃-30℃, it is hot and it will rain. You could take T-shirts and shorts. An umbrella is needed. You also could take jeans, in the shopping mall it wil be cool because of the air-conditioner. Lussie Lu replied on 2012-08-06

Dear Tracy, As you said, there will be a heavy train this week, but it won't last long time. I searched on line, it will be sunny in about 4 days. The most of attractions are out of doors, eccapt the museums. You could realize the details about the main attractions in Hong Kong on our website.
