Flights to Hong Kong
A city long considered to be the cosmopolitan capital of the Far East, Hong Kong is a thrilling, bustling place to visit. From its neon signage in both Cantonese and English to its endless shopping and big-city nightlife, it’s a city that can sometimes overwhelm but which will always reward those willing to step outside their comfort zone.
Thanks to increasing competition from other cities in the region, Hong Kong is more affordable than you might assume – although those looking for luxury and shopping will find plenty of places to spend their money. Causeway Bay is a shopper’s haven with its own Times Square – a massive mall – at its heart, whilst Lan Kwai Fong and Soho are places to go if you’re after some culinary delights.
Away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of the busy city streets, visitors can escape on a harbour cruise, recuperate in the peaceful Hong Kong Park or take a tram or escalator to Victoria Peak for a sublime view of both the metropolis and the sea. It’s also worth visiting some of the 200 outlying islands. The biggest of them all, Lantau is home to the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and even a Disneyland – so families can keep the kids happy too.
With its sub-tropical climate, Hong Kong can get very hot and humid, especially in the summer months when acclimatising can be particularly difficult. When searching for flights to Hong Kong, many look to go during early spring or late autumn, when the days are still warm but fresher and the air a little clearer.
