With over 7.4 million inhabitants within its city limits, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. What was once a region of fishing villages and farming, it has now grown to become one of the world's most significant financial hub and commercial ports. Its urban regions are also unexceptional and with the city's smooth transport system, you should enjoy wandering in ancient villages, island hiking or kayaking among volcanic sea arches.
The best time to visit Hong Kong is from October to early December as the temperature during this time is sunny but cool and pleasant. But if you wish to experience Hong Kong's colourful festivals, you should travel between January and February when the Spring Festival and Lantern Festival are celebrated.
