If you are planning a tour to Hong Kong, you should not miss out a few travel tips. Let’s take a look at those tips which are minor but would be good for you to know.
With the average temperature ranging from 18 to 27℃, the weather is very good for tour in spring. There will be no problem with thin clothes. But as it sometimes showers, you had better take umbrella at all times.
With the average temperature ranging from 26 to 33℃, it is hot and humid with the occasional showers. If you put on the shorts, you may face some difficulties as some restaurants prevent the wearer of shorts. So, make sure to prepare the pants.
The fall is the time when the rainy season ends and the drying season starts. Its average temperature ranges from 18 to 28℃. It is the best weather for enjoying the walking on the street. But as there is a big difference in temperature between night and day, it is good way to prepare the thin outer.
It is rare for the temperature to go down below 10℃ even in winter. The trees and the flower do not wither but continue to bloom. As a thick outer may sometimes be troublesome, be careful.
Moving from airport
Limousine bus is a transportation means which is easily accessible with reasonable price compared with taxi. You can just buy the tickets at the travel agency located between Arrival Halls A and B. If you have a group of 3 or more, taxi is better. The basic fare would be about HK$250 including expressway toll from the airport to Tsim Sha Tsui or HK$300 from the airport to Central.
from Hong Kong to Macau
When people visit Hong Kong, they often visit Macau. They usually use ferries to go to Macau. There are Skypier at International Airport Terminal and Kowloon Terminal. Recently, the procedure going between Hong Kong and Macau was simplified without need to prepare an immigration report and get the passport stamp. So, people can easily take advantage of it.
World food in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a place where many people around the world visit as a tourist site. It is also famous for a variety of foods. Especially, the chicken food using the chicken meat is the Korea’s representative healing food which caught people’s attention around the world with its taste. Any gourmet would know this menu. If you are not accustomed to the chicken, how about the oven grilled chicken rather than the fried chicken. Korea’s No. 1 oven grilled chicken brand “Goobne Chicken” has its branches in Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Tseung Kwan O and Causeway Bay. Their signature menus include sweet Goobne Honey Curry Basasak Chicken, spicy Hot Pepper Basasak Chicken and sweet Soy Garlic Chicken. As the chicken menus are not stimulating but are a little addictive, they are favored by not only local residents but also by the tourists. Even Hollywood stars often visit there.
