Visiting Hong Kong in November: Important Travel Tips and Popular Tours
November is in the peak season.
November is a peak travel month due to the fine weather. The attractions are crowded. The prices of hotels and flights are much more expensive than the ones during the low season.
We recommend that you book in advance. We can help obtain your tickets so that you avoid wasting time at crowded attractions by waiting in ticket lines.
The good news is that you don’t need to worry too much about what to prepare as rainwear and sun protection are not that useful. If you have forgotten to pack something, just buy it in Hong Kong.
A good choice is to get up early in the morning and arrive at the attraction sites before other people. Your guide will get ready and wait for you no matter how early you plan to depart.
