In the winter months of January through March, Chinese tourists flock to Hong Kong to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Hotel and flight prices usually spike during this time. Spring welcomes warmer temperatures without the humidity. Plan your trip before the national holidays if you want to avoid crowds and higher-priced flights and hotels.

Things to do
Things to do in Hong Kong
There are plenty of outdoor attractions to fill your days with during your trip to Hong Kong. Victoria Peak is the highest mountain in Hong Kong Island. If you’re not up to making the trek up this 552-metre ascent, you can grab a taxi or wait for a cable car to take you to the summit. Once you reach the top, you’ll be treated to a view across all of greater Hong Kong. Thrill-seekers can check out Hong Kong Disneyland or Ocean Park. Both of these theme parks promise excitement and entertainment for travellers of all ages. Diehard shoppers should make a beeline for Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, where you can find a plethora of shopping opportunities and vibrant nightlife. Or those wanting to connect with their spirituality should make a point to visit Lantau Island. Here, you can pay reverence at the Po Lin Monastery, which is the home of the bronze Tian Tan Buddha. You’ll have to climb a long stairway to get close to this 34-metre-tall statue, but it is worth every step.
