Hong Kong weather experiences


I stayed in HK during the whole month of January 2024. Overall, the weather was quite comfortable with many sunny days and often a temperature during the day between 20 and 23 degrees C. During the night the temperature could be a little bit chilly, but at least it is not humid. If you have no heating inside the bedroom, an extra blanket or a jug with warm water is necessary.
