Gifts prepared for you by editors based in Hong Kong

In recent years, Hong Kong has undergone many changes due to the impact of the epidemic and the economy. Some popular restaurants, shops, and some of the attractions you used to frequent have chosen to close during this time for different reasons. As a group of editors who have lived in Hong Kong for a long time, we sometimes meet tourists on the street who take some old travel notes from the Internet and plan some old itineraries to visit some "popular attractions" that no longer exist. We can all feel their sense of loss when their schedule is suddenly disrupted.

To be honest, we are actually a group of local Hong Kong editors who often travel to different countries around the world and like Hong Kong culture and Hong Kong food.

Q&A on the latest current situation in Hong Kong

In the past few years, due to the epidemic and various impacts, many people have not had the opportunity to come to Hong Kong in recent years. Maybe you would like to know the latest current situation in Hong Kong before setting off.

Q: Is Hong Kong safe now? Is it still worth visiting?
A: Although Hong Kong has experienced different social incidents in the past few years, the overall environment is actually still very safe. Especially for tourists like you who come to Hong Kong for sightseeing and stay for only a few days, it will not have any impact. To put it simply, there are still queues for restaurants that were very popular in the past, and Hong Kong people still walk very fast. The only difference is that prices in Hong Kong have increased a bit in all aspects, so you need to prepare a larger travel budget.

Q: Does Hong Kong still need to fill in the immigration health declaration?
A: Starting from around March 2023, you can basically enter the country normally without filling out a health declaration.

Q: Does Hong Kong still need to wear masks?
A: The mask order was lifted in early 2023, but many people still continue to wear masks for different reasons. It may be a habit, or it may be to prevent infection. In the actual environment, no one will care whether you wear a mask or not, so you can decide whether you need to use a mask according to your own preferences.

Q: What is the difference between Hong Kong now and Hong Kong in the past?
A: Hong Kong has undergone tremendous changes in the past few years. Some of the restaurants, shops, and even hotels that used to be in the main tourist areas have disappeared and are now replaced by shops that are close to daily life. If you haven’t been to Hong Kong for a long time, you must take the time to do more research before traveling to Hong Kong.

Understand Hong Kong’s geographical location

Hong Kong is located in Asia, a city to the west of Taiwan and south of Shenzhen, China. Flights to Hong Kong from most major Asian cities range from 60 minutes to 5 hours. At the same time, Hong Kong also has many flights connecting different Asian cities. Taking Taipei and Tokyo as examples, there are more than 20 flights to Hong Kong every day.

On the other hand, the entire area of Hong Kong is not very large. The distance from the southernmost point to the northernmost point and the easternmost point to the westernmost point of Hong Kong is only 50 kilometers – 60 kilometers. Basically, you only need to take about 90 minutes to take the subway and bus to get to the other end of Hong Kong from anywhere in Hong Kong.

In terms of tourist attraction selection, the most important tourist attractions in Hong Kong are located on both sides of Victoria Harbour. For example, Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Causeway Bay, Mong Kok, etc. are the most popular tourist attractions among tourists. In addition, there are also some scenic spots in the suburbs of Hong Kong that are worth visiting, such as Stanley, Sai Kung, Tai O, Disneyland, Ocean Park, or some country parks, hiking trails, etc., which are all very suitable for arranging day trips. .

The most special thing about Hong Kong is that it is a very small city, so it is possible for you to complete hiking trails, enjoy the scenery of Victoria Harbor, go to shopping malls, and go to theme parks in the same day.

Learn about weather changes in Hong Kong

Since Hong Kong is a coastal city, the weather is very different from other Asian cities. For example, the weather in Hong Kong does not have four distinct seasons like Tokyo, Japan. It will not be like Singapore and Bangkok, Thailand, where the temperature remains at 25 degrees – 30 degrees for most of the year. To put it simply, you can divide the weather in Hong Kong into two types of temperatures: summer and winter.

summer

Hong Kong has relatively hot months from May to October every year, with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees to 33 degrees throughout the day. If you will travel to Hong Kong during this period and plan a lot of outdoor activities, you must prepare some daily summer clothing and make adequate preparations for sun protection.

Although it is very hot outside in Hong Kong, based on our daily experience of living in Hong Kong, we are all accustomed to wearing an extra coat indoors. Since the indoor environment in Hong Kong is relatively cold, especially some restaurants and transportation are used to lowering the air-conditioning temperature below 23 degrees, you need to wear an extra coat to avoid catching cold easily. In addition, you must always have an umbrella with you when you go out during the summer, so that you can cope with sudden heavy showers.

winter

The period from November to April every year in Hong Kong is a relatively cool and cold season, and the daytime temperature can change rapidly from 5 degrees to 25 degrees. In addition, Hong Kong will face the coldest winter of the year in January every year, and then it will turn into warm and humid weather in March. If you are preparing to travel to Hong Kong for a while, we strongly recommend that you download the Hong Kong Observatory mobile APP in advance so that you can check the temperature changes in the next few days and prepare some suitable clothes.

In addition to preparing different clothing in different seasons, you should also note that Hong Kong has a season of frequent typhoons and heavy rains from June to October every year. If you are unfortunate enough to encounter these extreme weather conditions during your trip to Hong Kong, be sure to prepare several different backup itinerary plans.

Recommended month to travel to Hong Kong

If you put aside days with typhoons and some extreme weather, Hong Kong is actually suitable for traveling to Hong Kong at any time and in any month.

Because in any season or festival in Hong Kong, you will find different special activities and different festival experiences. What's more important is that most of Hong Kong's attractions will remain open at all times, with few breaks, and most of them are located indoors. So even in any season, whether it is hot summer or cold winter, it will not affect your pre-planned itinerary.

However, if you want to experience some Hong Kong special festivals, such as Halloween, Christmas, and Lunar New Year, and want to arrange to spend them in some high-end restaurants and high-end hotels, you must start booking months in advance for where you want to go. of high-end restaurants and high-end hotels. For example, take the English afternoon tea in the lobby cafe of the Peninsula Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui and the rooms at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel as examples. These are some very popular festival venues that even ordinary Hong Kong people have to book months in advance.

Learn about everyday language and culture shock while traveling in Hong Kong

What kind of language do Hong Kong people usually speak and what kind of writing do they usually write?

If you travel to Hong Kong this time, mainly to some popular tourist areas and large shopping malls, then there will basically be no problem whether you speak Mandarin, English, or Cantonese, and whether you write traditional Chinese characters, simplified Chinese characters, or English. Because most store clerks and hotel clerks working in tourist areas have received very complete training, almost everyone can speak several different languages at the same time and arrange the services you want.

But there is one thing worth paying attention to: some high-end hotels and high-end restaurants are accustomed to communicating with you in English first, rather than other languages, when they reply to emails, answer calls, or provide services to you. This is not discrimination against guests by individual hotels and restaurants, but because they often receive tourists from different countries. Using English to receive guests is a manifestation of professional service and a way of respecting guests.

But as long as you walk into some small restaurants and shops in residential areas, you will find that most Hong Kong people communicate in Cantonese, a mixture of Chinese and English, and write in traditional Chinese characters. Although most Hong Kong people have taken the time to learn Mandarin, there are actually many people who still cannot speak Mandarin, or who do not like to speak Mandarin.

If you plan to leave those popular tourist areas and go to some scenic spots in Hong Kong's residential areas, learning a few daily Cantonese phrases before departure will definitely be helpful to the entire trip. For example, some Cantonese expressions commonly used in Hong Kong-style restaurants, some Cantonese expressions commonly used during shopping, some Cantonese expressions commonly used in transportation, etc. When the other party does not understand any English sentence at all, you just You will discover the importance of knowing a few simple Cantonese expressions.

On the other hand, when shopping or dining in Hong Kong, you may have the opportunity to encounter some rude shop assistants. That's because the pace of life in Hong Kong is relatively fast, and stores are often understaffed, so sometimes store clerks are extremely busy and forget to manage their facial expressions. Of course, it may also be an issue with the attitude of individual clerks or the management of the restaurant. But... no matter how you say it, this is the most real side of Hong Kong people living in a hurry and busy life.

Currency exchange rate, payment system in Hong Kong

Hong Kong legal tender

The legal currency of Hong Kong is the Hong Kong dollar (HKD). Hong Kong dollars come in a variety of banknotes and coins of different denominations, which you can use when making purchases in any store in Hong Kong. If you want to know more about Hong Kong’s currency design before arriving in Hong Kong, you can go to the website of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority. They have the latest photos of Hong Kong’s legal tender for your reference.

More Hong Kong legal tender information: Hong Kong Monetary Authority website

Currency Exchange Rate

Hong Kong’s currency exchange rate is pegged to the U.S. dollar, and each U.S. dollar is guaranteed to be exchanged for HKD $7.75 – HKD $7.85. If you want to calculate how much Hong Kong dollars you need to exchange for this trip to Hong Kong, you can pre-calculate the budget required during the trip, and then calculate the final number of Hong Kong dollars needed based on the exchange rates between different currencies and the Hong Kong dollar.

More Hong Kong travel budget information: How much does it cost for three days and two nights and four days and three nights in Hong Kong? A summary of travel budget discount packages!

Since Hong Kong is still a cash-based city, we all recommend that you exchange some Hong Kong dollars in cash before traveling to Hong Kong. Generally, there are two ways to exchange Hong Kong dollar cash: one is to exchange it with your usual bank before arriving in Hong Kong, and the other method is to exchange it after arriving in Hong Kong. If you decide to exchange the cash you have into Hong Kong dollars after arriving in Hong Kong, you must compare the exchange rates of several money change shops, because some money change shops charge very high fees.

payment system

If you unfortunately run out of all Hong Kong dollar cash, you can try to pay with foreign currency instead of Hong Kong dollars, but there is no guarantee that the store will accept your payment with foreign currency instead of Hong Kong dollars, because they are not obliged to do so for you. Another solution is to pay with a credit card and reserve cash for use only when necessary. For example, some restaurants and chain stores located in large shopping malls will accept a variety of credit cards as one of the payment methods. In addition, you can also buy an Octopus card, which can be used to pay when taking any transportation, as well as in convenience stores and some restaurants.

Voltage, mobile phone charging equipment in Hong Kong

Any electrical appliance sold in Hong Kong and any electrical socket that appears on the wall basically uses 220V / 50Hz voltage and uses a British three-pin plug. If you need to use any electrical appliances during your trip to Hong Kong, be sure to bring the required extra transformers and socket adapters.

However, if you only need to charge your mobile phone, camera, and computer during your trip to Hong Kong, you only need to bring a suitable charging cable and a suitable adapter to charge in the hotel room. Of course, if you often travel to Hong Kong, we will recommend you to go to IKEA or Apple Store to buy a USB charging plug, so that you can fully charge your mobile phone anytime and anywhere.

We would recommend you to go to IKEA and Apple Store to buy USB charging plugs because these two companies have many branches in tourist areas. Moreover, the quality of the USB charging plugs they sell is guaranteed, and the price is not very high. They are safer than some unknown brands of USB charging plugs.

Mobile APPs commonly used during travel in Hong Kong

"Can I use Google Map while traveling in Hong Kong?" "Yes, of course you can use Google Map in Hong Kong."

Although Hong Kong is not a very large city, there are many side streets and narrow alleys in every area, basically like a maze with no exit at all. Even if we have lived in Hong Kong for many years, sometimes we need to check Google Maps to go to the restaurant we want to go to. Just like when we went to a party in Mong Kok, we had to open Google Maps to find the location of the restaurant. Therefore, Google Maps is a very important mobile APP when traveling in Hong Kong.

In addition to Google Maps, there are also the Hong Kong Observatory’s weather forecast mobile APP, traffic planning mobile APP, travel discount mobile APP, etc., which are all worth preparing in advance before departure. In this way, you can learn about the latest weather changes, typhoon forecasts, and Hong Kong's latest transportation arrangements in advance during your trip to Hong Kong.

In addition, because the weather in Hong Kong changes very quickly in summer, and there is a chance of very cold weather in winter, it is very important to download the Hong Kong Observatory’s mobile APP before departing for Hong Kong. In this way, you can check the latest weather changes and typhoon forecasts.

How many days should be planned for a trip to Hong Kong?

I believe that for many people, one of the most important things to consider before traveling to Hong Kong is how many days should be enough to arrange a trip to Hong Kong.

To be honest, there is no standard suitable length for traveling in Hong Kong. Even our editors who have lived in Hong Kong for a long time cannot just say how many days are enough to arrange a Hong Kong travel itinerary.

The main reason is: There are so many places to explore in Hong Kong. Whether it is in the city of Hong Kong or in the suburbs of Hong Kong, there are many attractions that are enough to arrange a whole day's itinerary. Of course, many people can visit many attractions in Hong Kong within three days and two nights. However, if you will include mountain climbing and theme parks during your trip to Hong Kong, you must prepare to spend a few extra days to visit these attractions.

So you can start planning from a "Hong Kong two days and one night itinerary", and then add different attractions and evolve it into a "Hong Kong three days and two nights itinerary", or a longer "Hong Kong four days and three nights itinerary". As for whether to arrange an itinerary for more than 5 days, it ultimately depends on what kind of experience you want to have in Hong Kong and which attractions you want to visit.

If you don’t have much time to plan this Hong Kong travel itinerary, you can refer to the following article related to itinerary planning. We have prepared a 2-day and 1-night itinerary and a 3-day and 2-night itinerary for your reference. You can visit every major attraction in Hong Kong according to your daily plan. However, we also believe that everyone will have the experience they want when they come to Hong Kong. So in addition to this itinerary plan, you can add more different attractions and form a unique Hong Kong travel itinerary.

Transportation planning during Hong Kong travel

Compared with other Asian cities, Hong Kong should be considered one of the cities with a relatively simple transportation system. Because you only need to take the MTR to reach most of the tourist attractions in Hong Kong. Of course, in addition to the subway, Hong Kong also has other types of transportation. For you who are traveling to Hong Kong for the first time, it may take a little more time to understand them.

Hong Kong's transportation network is mainly based on railways, with buses, minibuses, minibuses, and ferries as auxiliary means of transportation. Therefore, you can choose to take the railway during your trip to Hong Kong to quickly travel to different attractions in the shortest time. Or you can choose to take a bus or tram, so that you can enjoy the street scenery of Hong Kong during the ride.

If you are traveling to Hong Kong for the first time and plan to visit the scenic spots on both sides of Victoria Harbor, such as Central, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok, as well as Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong Ocean Park, you can just take the MTR It is very convenient to reach each of the above attractions.

However, if you want to experience the different special modes of transportation in Hong Kong, such as the Star Ferry, double-decker trams, double-decker buses, or even minibuses, which are famous for their speed, you must first understand each mode of transportation. Riding habits, payment methods, and driving directions. This way you won’t take another bus route that takes you to some unknown place.

Choice of Hong Kong Telephone Network Card

If I want to talk about one of the advantages of traveling in Hong Kong, it is that the Internet speed in Hong Kong is very fast and the charges are very cheap. Because free Wi-Fi services are provided in major tourist attractions, large shopping malls, and chain restaurants. Even if you want to buy an Internet SIM card suitable for traveling in Hong Kong, there are many very cheap options in Hong Kong.

For example, taking a Hong Kong travel itinerary of no more than 7 days as an example, you only need to spend about HKD $80 to purchase a phone card that is valid for 7 days and includes 7GB of network data. For general sightseeing in Hong Kong, this phone card allows you to share photos with relatives and friends during the trip, or use Skype or Line to make free calls home. What's more important: This Internet SIM card also includes local call usage, allowing you to call directly to make reservations at different restaurants, which is very convenient!

Of course, in addition to travel phone SIM cards, you can also book some WiFi sharers – unlimited data network plans. However, compared with inserting and using a phone SIM card, you have to spend more time to go through the return procedure of the WiFi sharer. If you plan to travel in Hong Kong for just a few days, you don’t necessarily need to book a WiFi sharer, because a phone card including 7GB of network data is definitely enough.

Food options in Hong Kong

As a densely populated city in Hong Kong, you can easily find more than 100 restaurants offering different dishes in basically every tourist area, and most of them are open from morning until late at night. But how do you choose one of the many restaurants that you think is worth trying? Will it be like others who refer to the restaurants often recommended in travel books and then spend an hour waiting in line?

Are popular restaurants recommended in general travel books still worth visiting?

If it is your first time to travel to Hong Kong, you may refer to some restaurants recommended in travel books in advance, and then spend an hour waiting in line outside the store. Of course, those restaurants that require long queues will mean that they are very popular in some aspects. It may be the quality of the food, the price may be cheap, or other different reasons, so everyone They are all willing to spend their limited travel time waiting in line.

However, there is a secret that most local Hong Kong people will not tell you: these very popular "famous restaurants" actually have several restaurants nearby that are offering the same dishes, and the prices are even cheaper. As long as you are willing to give up waiting in line for those "famous restaurants", you may get a better dining experience.

Take Kau Kee Beef Brisket in Central as an example. This is a restaurant that is often recommended by different travel books. Many people think that their beef brisket noodles are very authentic and they must go. But their beef brisket noodles are definitely not cheap. The most basic version costs more than HKD $50. If you add drinks and snacks, it is expected that the average consumption per person will exceed HKD$100.

However, with the same catering budget of HK$$100, you can find several other good-quality beef brisket noodle restaurants in Central and Wan Chai, and you don’t need to spend time waiting in line, and you don’t have to worry about eating too slowly. And was driven away by the store clerk.

Of course, you can treat waiting in line for different restaurants as a travel experience. In this case, you can choose to go to restaurants recommended by travel books. However, since there are so many attractions in Hong Kong that are worth visiting, and there are many cheap and good restaurants in every area, as well as high-end restaurants with great views, there is no need to go to designated restaurants and then spend money. Go wait in line for an hour.

So, how should you choose different restaurants during your trip to Hong Kong? In the following sections, we will share with you the usual process of choosing a restaurant. This allows you to follow this process to select a restaurant that suits your budget, and you will have the opportunity to go to some restaurants that only local Hong Kong people will go to.

Find a suitable restaurant from different areas

For many overseas travelers, the usual process of choosing a restaurant is based on the dishes they want to try, the reviews in different travel books, and the location of the hotel, and then choosing a restaurant that meets all the above conditions. So sometimes you will see some travelers leaving comments about certain restaurants such as "too expensive", "long queues", "expensive and not delicious".

To avoid having a restaurant ruin your travel mood, you must have a completely different way of choosing restaurants just like the local Hong Kong people.

For example, when choosing a restaurant, you must first consider the area where the restaurant is located, and then research whether the restaurant is a chain store or an independently operated restaurant. The next step is to try to find several restaurants that offer the same dish to compare, and finally judge whether it is worth trying based on the restaurant's charges.

To put it simply, if you want to drink tea and eat snacks, you can choose to go to some civilian teahouses located in residential areas, some teahouse chain stores located in tourist areas, and some teahouses located in high-end hotels. Before deciding which teahouse to go to, you should not only consider the distance between you and different teahouses, but more importantly, teahouses in different areas will represent different charges, different food quality, and different service quality.

Under normal circumstances, restaurants located in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui charge the highest prices. The same food may cost several times more than restaurants located in residential areas. But these restaurants use the best ingredients and provide the highest level of service. For those restaurants located in Mong Kok, Causeway Bay, and some chain-operated restaurants located in large shopping malls, their set meals will be cheaper, but they may not necessarily give you the best ingredients. As for those restaurants located in residential areas, such as those in the eastern part of Kowloon Peninsula, the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, and the southern part of Hong Kong, they usually use some fresh ingredients to make the cheapest set meals, but because the restaurants are often extremely busy , don’t have too high expectations for service attitude.

In other words, as long as you have enough budget, you can choose a high-end restaurant in Central or Tsim Sha Tsui that will satisfy you in all aspects. However, if you want to try more restaurants with different cuisines within a limited budget, you can also try to go to civilian restaurants located in residential areas, but you may have to make some compromises in aspects such as service level and restaurant hygiene.

Find a suitable restaurant based on the purpose of dining

Another way for local Hong Kong people to choose restaurants is to filter different restaurants according to the purpose of dining at that time. For example, if I want to book a restaurant where you can celebrate an important holiday, I will only choose one of the high-end restaurants in hotels in Central or Tsim Sha Tsui. But if I want to eat the most authentic Hong Kong-style food, such as barbecued pork rice, wonton noodles, Hong Kong-style tea houses, and Hong Kong-style tea restaurants, I will first start from "civilian restaurants" in Wan Chai, Sheung Wan, Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei and other areas. make a choice among them. The main reason is that there are more restaurants of this type in these areas, and the prices are cheaper than those in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui.

For example, it is the same Hong Kong-style tea restaurant, Hong Kong-style tea house, egg tart shop, barbecue rice shop, claypot rice shop, etc. It seems that apart from these restaurants, there is no restaurant worth visiting in Hong Kong.

However, in addition to these restaurants that are often recommended by travel journals, there are actually many different types of restaurants worth trying. For example, some dim sum restaurants, ice rooms, bars and restaurants, high-end Western restaurants, and even chain fast food restaurants, chain fast food restaurants, etc. You can choose different restaurants according to your own itinerary, instead of spending a lot of time waiting in line, just to eat some dishes that can be eaten in other areas.

Although these hotels cannot compare with those 5-star hotels in terms of room views, these hotels are very close to the subway station, and the service quality is close to the level of 5-star hotels. What's more important is that you only need half the price of a 5-star hotel, which is about HKD $1,000 - HKD $2,000 per night.

Choose a hotel from the best available rates

If your requirements for a hotel room are that the hotel is close to the subway station, the room is clean, and the room rate is not too high, you can consider some hotels with room rates of only HKD $500 – HKD1,000 per night. Usually these hotels are located near subway stations and require a 5-minute walk from the subway station. In addition, the rooms are smaller in size. However, compared with those 4-star hotels, hotels in this price range still retain complete hotel services and are not very simple hotels. You can absolutely rest assured in this aspect.

Choose a hotel from a very limited accommodation budget

If you want to keep your accommodation budget to a minimum, do not have high requirements for hotel room size, hotel service quality, etc., and hope to book a hotel room with a price of less than HKD $500 per night, you can consider it Some small hotels, youth hostels, and guesthouses located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei, and Causeway Bay.

However, before you decide to book these hotel rooms, you must be mentally prepared as follows:

  • Hotel rooms in this price range are all on the small side, with standard rooms usually only being 10 square meters.
  • The facilities in youth hostel-type rooms are relatively simple and most likely require shared bathrooms.
  • Lack of privacy, avoid booking this type of room if you need absolute tranquility.
  • Hotel-type rooms are rooms located in old residential buildings. The room equipment is very simple and the room service is almost non-existent. If you really plan to book a hotel-type room, you have to make more compromises in terms of room quality and accommodation experience.

Best hotel for sightseeing

In a city as small as Hong Kong, it seems that staying in a hotel in that area won't make a big difference. But in reality, is there really no difference at all?

If you will visit Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong Ocean Park, and attractions on both sides of Victoria Harbor this time, we will recommend you to book some hotels in the Central District. In this way, you can save more transportation time than booking hotels on the Kowloon Peninsula. Because you can quickly go to any of the above attractions from Central MTR Station, and you can also take the MTR directly to Hong Kong International Airport.

Of course, you can arrange your accommodation at a hotel in Hong Kong Disneyland or Hong Kong Ocean Park, so you can get a completely different accommodation experience.
