Weather: September is the best summer month to visit Hong Kong. It is generally hot and humid with an average of about 15 days of rain. The typhoon season continues and it is the month with the most tropical cyclones. The average low and high temperatures are 26 °C (79 °F) and 30 °C (86 °F).
Clothing: Bring summer clothes, but also a thin sweater or a cardigan in case of cooler temperatures during tropical storms.
If you travel with us, we carry umbrellas for you, for if it rains. We also offer ice water for you to drink if you like.
Pollen allergy sufferers, be aware many flowers bloom in September in Hong Kong: rain tree, pride of Barbados, tall bottle-brush, winged cassia, dwarf ixora, etc. If needed, use a dust mask or take some medicine.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September. Temple Street is a good place to go during the festival. You can enjoy snacking and dining on hot Chinese food at the many outdoor restaurants while you watch the acrobatic lion dances or other performers.
If you want to get far away from the bustling city, you can go to Lamma Island. It is famous 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.
September starts to be busy, especially if the Mid-Autumn Festival falls in it. Both airline tickets and hotel rooms may be difficult to get during the major holiday. We could help conveniently arrange your hotel rooms and your flight tickets using our experience in the area.
Our tours are flexible. If you have any requirements, please contact us for a tailor-made tour.
