Hong Kong, a city where East-meets-West and Traditional-meets-Modern, offers numerous photo and video opportunities to its visitors. Key landmarks including, the Peak, Victoria Harbour, Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, Tian Tan Buddha and the various Declared Monuments and Historical Buildings are popular photo spots.

Unfortunately, a bi-product of significant development and economic growth is pollutant and smog in the air. It would make the trip much more worthwhile if YOU come and capture Hong Kong at its most photogenic moments.

From our non-scientific observations, the best time time to visit Hong Kong is between mid-June to mid-July of each year.
During that period, Southern breeze carries all pollutant away from Hong Kong, offering everyone fresh air as well as a blue and clear sky for a three to four week period. In addition, the typhoon and rain season often begins in August, making June and July a good time to travel. However, please be prepared the extremely warm temperature as Hong Kong can reach some 30 degrees Celsius in July.
