Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China

Vibrant and densely populated, Hong Kong is a major port and global financial center famed for its tower-studded skyline. It’s also known for its lively food scene – from Cantonese dim sum to extravagant high tea – and its shopping, with options spanning chaotic Temple Street Night Market to the city’s innumerable bespoke tailors. The city is a mixture of Cantonese Chinese roots and colonial British connections, as seen in its arts and music scene and cultural attitudes.

Hong Kong is generally a safe city for women digital nomads, but as with all large cities, be careful of pickpockets in crowded areas.

The city is more popular with expats than digital nomads due to the high cost of living. However, Hong Kong is a good base to incorporate your business and open a bank account, plus the connection with Mainland China makes the city attractive for business owners who want to tap into the Chinese market.

The best time to visit Hong Kong is between October and December (Autumn - early Winter), when there are pleasant breezes, plenty of sunshine and averges 19-28°C. Summer (June - August) is hot, humid and sunny with occasional showers and thunderstorms. Weather can exceed 31°C but the high humidity levels can make it feel even hotter. Winter (December - February) is cool, dry and cloudy with occasional cold winds. Spring (March - May) starts getting hotter and more humid, with average temperature ranging from 17°C – 26°C. Typhoon season begins in May and ends in November. When a typhoon is approaching, warnings are broadcast on television and radio.
