It is always a good idea to plan your holiday so you optimise your travel budget and don’t miss out on any of the must-do things in Hong Kong.  

Here is our handy travel guide to assist you in chalking out a plan and doing the required prep. So you can simply go ahead and have a super fun time once you arrive in Hong Kong.

Best Time To Go

You should plan your trip to Hong Kong during March to June or from September to November. That’s when the weather is most pleasant. If you happen to be there around May-June you’ll get to see the Dragon Boat Festival, one of Hong Kong’s most lively and fun events.

Flights & Airfare

Cathay Pacific, Air India, SpiceJet and IndiGo operate non-stop flights from major cities in India such as Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru to Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok International Airport. Book your flights well in advance for the best deals.

How To Get Your Hong Kong Visa

As per the new eVisa rules, Indian nationals seeking to visit Hong Kong as tourists just need to pre-register their arrival. Once you’ve completed this online registration, you can enjoy a visa-free stay in Hong Kong for up to 14 days. 

Where To Stay

There are numerous good hotel options both in Hong Kong and Kowloon that will fit into your budget. Although Hong Kong is very well connected by a good public transport network, you should choose a hotel that is centrally located to a metro station and the main attractions.

Local Transport

Hong Kong is actually made up of three different islands – Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. As you’ll be moving around quite a bit, taking individual trips can be costly. For a more economical option, purchase the Octupus day travel pass that works on all public transport – metro trains, trams, light rail and buses. Public transportation system in Hong Kong is super reliable, clean and affordable. By the way taxis if you need them are also easily available. To move between Hong Kong and Kowloon islands there’s the Star Ferry service. 

Must See And Do

Spend the day at Hong Kong Disneyland, Ocean Park, browse around Temple Street night market, ride the Ngong Ping cable car, hike to ‘The Peak or ride the Peak Tram, take a Star Ferry ride, visit the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery. These are just some of the amazing things you can do in Hong Kong.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

Buying a travel insurance policy for Hong Kong will protect you in emergency situations such as loss of your passport, luggage or even your trip getting cancelled. Travel insurance also covers any medical expenses just in case the need arises, so that your carefully planned trip and vacation savings are well safeguarded.
