Weather: The weather is very pleasant with clear skies, constant warmth and more sunshine hours than September. The average low and high temperatures are 23 °C (73 °F) and 28 °C (82 °F).

Things to Do

The Mid-Autumn Festival: The annual holiday is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September, but occasionally the public holiday is in early October.

The sunny, warm, and dry weather of fall is ideal for being outdoors. The country parks, hiking trails, shopping streets, and city parks are great places to go.

Experience Lamma Island: We recommend this small island for its beautiful ambling scenic walks and seafood restaurants. You'll see hilly landscapes and large clean white sand beaches you probably wouldn't expect to find in Hong Kong.
  • 9-kilometer (6-mile) Family Walk walking path — a 2.5-hour stroll
  • One giant wind turbine (71 meters tall), two great public beaches, and beautiful natural scenery
  • Notable, large Chinese seafood restaurants

See the sights at Hong Kong Park: This city park is the best in Hong Kong. The Museum of Tea Ware houses fine ancient Chinese antiques displayed in a pleasant way. The collection is truly remarkable. It will pique your interest in China's tea culture.

The paths wind around gardens, elegant English colonial buildings, and goes up a hill to overlook the large aviary. You can watch the birds fly around inside and hear their calls.

  • The Edward Youde Aviary is Hong Kong's biggest aviary and one of the biggest walk-through aviaries in the world.
  • Forsgate Conservatory houses plants from different climate regions.
  • Museum of Tea Ware (free entry)
  • Fine Chinese tea shop and tea drinking cultural experience
  • The big and stately 19th century colonial British buildings are among the best in Hong Kong.

Travel: October is a busy travel month, especially if the Mid-Autumn Festival falls in it. October is one of the main conference months in Hong Kong, when hotels get filled up quickly and rates rise. It is recommended to book hotels as early as possible. Both airline tickets and hotel rooms may be difficult to get during the China National Day or Mid-Autumn Festival holiday.
