Hong Kong In December!!

Hi My husband and I visited Hong Kong in March this year for 14 days and absolutely loved the place and can't wait to get back!!!

We are thinking of returning boxing day in December for 7 nights!

Is this a good time of year for a holiday in Hong Kong? What is the weather and humidity like that time of year!!

the humidity is low compared to the rest of the year, but the skies aren't the clearest. The last couple of Decembers have been in the main quite hazy interspersed with the odd clearer day. It's a lot cooler but don't expect great visibility in the main.

Why not stay for New Years and watch the harbour fireworks?

I go every December and it is a good time of year because it is not hot and humid. Usually no rain, but it can be a bit smoggy.

we were there january 9-17 this year.

It was so pleasant walking around & quite cool some days.

We had a few foggy days but also some beautiful clear ones.

Coming to Hk during November and December are the BEST months weather wise, and festivities wise. Sales also start in beginning of December all the way until Mid January.

It's also one of the MOST expensive to visit HK, but it's worth it in my opinion !

Glad to hear the sales will be on, we have booked to go to Hong Kong flying on 14 Dec for 2 weeks. We are taking our 7 (by then) year old to see his roots as my husband came to England from Hong Kong when he was 9. The last time we went was March 1997 so I expect we will see lots of changes.

I'm thrilled your all so positive about holidaying in December as this is going to be the only time off we'll get until July 09 and I can't wait that long.
