This is also one of the homes of the most famous themed park in the world, the Disneyland.

If you are planning to have your vacation in Hong Kong, do not go there on the months of July and August. It is too hot during July and you cannot step out of your air-conditioned hotel room. If you do, you will start sweating and so it is not advisable to have a tour during this month. You will not enjoy the beautiful sceneries on a very hot weather; especially the temperature and humidity remain high in August. What makes it worst is the occasional showers, thunderstorms and typhoons. August is the wettest month, so you need to bring an umbrella whenever you want to go out.

If you plan to go shopping, do not focus on Malls because Hong Kong is popular for its luxury malls where you can find high end branded products like bags and shoes. They offer popular brand that are dearly expensive. If you have millions to spend, then Harbour City Mall and IFC Mall are the right places for you. How about for those who do not have that enough money to spend for shopping?

Do not worry, as you can still find great items at a low price. City Hate Outlets Mall is popular for bargains on branded products. You can also find affordable items at Mong Kok. For high quality products, there are boutiques such as 45R and Kapok in the Star Street area. PMQ in Central has myriad locally designed apparel, home products, and jewelry boutiques.

Do not forget to bargain and learn to haggle.  If you go to the local markets, never accept the first price they offer you. As for half price, then again and start there. Some vendors won’t accept it but eventually, you will find someone who can accept your offer. If you can act that you lack interest in buying anything, there is a big chance that the vendor will offer you good price. However, remember you cannot do this inside the supermarkets and department stores.

It is important that you know at least a little of their language. Do not forget to learn Cantonese before you visit Hong Kong. Take note, Cantonese and not Mandarin. Though some people also speak in English, most taxi drivers speak this language the least. So imagine how hard it would be for you to talk to the driver to bring you on your destination. They would appreciate if you could learn the simple greetings like Hello – lei ho, thank you – Ng Goi and Bye – bai baai.

While in Hong Kong, do not miss out the chance to ride their ferries. Instead of taking the subway or taxi, you can try a ferry. They provide tourists wonderful scenery and a memorable experience. The fare is quite inexpensive so you do not have to worry. The Star Ferry gives photographers good angles of the harbor and this is perfect for picture taking.

If this is your first time in Hong Kong and you are scared of taking the ferries, then you can also try riding the buses. It is more advisable to ride them instead of MTR for short distance travels. They are cheaper and quicker than taking taxis.

Remember not to smoke on public transportation because they prohibit this in Hong Kong. You can get fine for almost HK $5,000 if you do this. Spitting in public places is also not possible in Hong Kong, so do not spit or you’ll spend HK $5,000. Due to the SARS virus in 2003, the city became very strict when it comes to spitting and now they totally prohibit this action.

Your stay in Hong Kong will surely be wonderful if you follow these simple advices. Enjoy your vacation!
