With a mid-range budget of 785-1,215 HKD (£80-£123) daily, you can enjoy stays in modest hotels, bus travel, convenient fast food, and a few extra adventures.

For those looking to indulge in luxury, 2,650 HKD (£269) a day will cover upscale hotels, private drivers or rideshares, guided tours, and dining out for every meal.

Is Hong Kong an expensive city?

You can’t use Hong Kong dollars in mainland China. The official currency in mainland China is the Yuan (also called Renminbi, RMB).

  • Comfortable temperatures perfect for city exploration.
  • Sunny days are ideal for outdoor activities, like hiking Dragon’s Back or visiting Disneyland.
  • The chance to experience festivals like the Mid-Autumn Festival with its beautiful lantern displays.

March to April is another good pick, providing:

  • Mild weather for leisurely walks through markets and parks.
  • Fewer tourists, making it easier to enjoy attractions like the Peak Tram and Victoria Harbor without the crowds.

Summer is hot and humid, with possible typhoons, so aiming for autumn or spring lets you enjoy Hong Kong’s best activities under pleasant weather conditions.

Hong Kong’s famous dish is dim sum. It’s a collection of small, flavourful dishes like steamed buns, dumplings, and rice noodle rolls. People often enjoy dim sum during yum cha, a traditional tea time.
