Top Things to Do and See in Hong Kong
If you only have time to do one thing in Hong Kong, hop on-board the Star Ferry. It's an iconic attraction that only costs a few Hong Kong Dollars to ride - perfect for budget travellers buying cheap flights to Hong Kong. For an unforgettable experience, time your ferry ride to coincide with the A Symphony of Lights show. You'll have the best seat in the house to take in the impressive spectacle of laser beams.
Buying flights to Hong Kong doesn't mean your entire holiday will be spent in an urban jungle. One of the top sights is Victoria Peak, a hill that will give you panoramic views over the city. Visitors can spend a day here, exploring nature trails, lookout points, or grabbing a quick meal from one of the restaurants.
Located on Lantau Island, the Big Buddha statue in Hong Kong sits at an impressive 34-metres high. It's one of the largest Buddha statues in the world and is something that all travellers buying flights to Hong Kong should see at least once. The best way to reach the statue is to take the scenic Ngong Ping cable bar. You'll glide over a lush forest canopy and get to visit the small Ngong Ping Village - a great spot to pick up a few souvenirs.
Hong Kong Disneyland
Unleash your inner child with a day out at Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island. The park is divided up into seven sections: Adventureland, Fantasyland, Toy Story Land, Tomorrowland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point and Main Street, USA. It's the perfect way to spend an afternoon with the whole family or as an opportunity to reconnect with your younger self. Travellers buying tickets to Hong Kong can easily reach the amusement park with the MTR Disneyland, or you can select a ticket that includes a hotel pick up and drop-off service.
The Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Hong Kong depends on your budget and interests. If you want to avoid the hot summer months, book your return flights to Hong Kong for travel between October and December. However, you'll want to plan your trip around the first week of October. It's National Day and the city is popular with tourists from mainland China. As a result, prices for flights to Hong Kong and accommodation may be higher.
From January to March, the temperatures are cool, and you'll need to pack warm layers. Some of the top events that you can plan your flights to Hong Kong around are the Hong Kong Arts Festival in February and the Hong Kong International Film Festival in March. You can also attend Chinese New Year, although keep in mind this can be one of the busiest times for tourists in the city and the rate of your return flights to Hong Kong may be at a premium. April to May are the perfect months to book tickets to Hong Kong if you're not a fan of cold climates or humidity.
Holidaymakers on a budget may also have an easier time finding cheap flights to Hong Kong. From June to September, the weather in Hong Kong is hot and typhoons are common. That said, it may be one of the best times to find deals on airfare to Hong Kong if you don't mind frequent rains and high humidity levels.
Tips for First-Time Travellers to Hong Kong
Accommodation Tips for Hong Kong
Budget travellers should book hotels and flights together for trips to Hong Kong. You’ll get a better deal on prices. If you've booked flights to Hong Kong that include a hotel, keep in mind that some places might ask for a refundable security deposit when you check-in.
Transport from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG)
The quickest way to get from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to your hotel is with the Airport Express. It takes 24 minutes to reach Kowloon, and a single ticket costs $13 HKG ($2.56 NZD). The train leaves every 12 minutes from 5.50am to midnight every day. Other transportation options include metered taxis and shuttle buses.
Purchase the Octopus Card
Whether you're buying return flights to Hong Kong for a week or a month, the Octopus Card will save you money while you’re away. It's the city's transportation card for the MTR system. You'll get a discount on fares, and you can use it to make purchases at supermarkets, coffee shops and movie theatres.
Use the Hong Kong Taxi Cards app
Not all taxi drivers in Hong Kong are fluent in English. To get around the language barrier, download the Hong Kong Taxi Cards app. It will translate where you are going into Cantonese. Travellers buying cheap flights to Hong Kong should also be aware that most drivers only accept cash, unless you're using a ride-sharing service such as Uber.
