November is the time to get outdoors and enjoy the pleasant temperatures and clear days without the overwhelming humidity of the summer months.
A light jacket and dressing in layers is probably best as there will be some warm days with temperatures dropping a bit at night.
November is Hong Kong's Wine and Dine Month and the festival is back this year, both in person and online, allowing a broader reach to people all over the world. The Hong Kong Literary Festival will also go ahead this year as a hybrid festival of live and online events. While Clockenflap has not been confirmed for 2022, the fabulous Symphony Under the Stars with the Hong Kong Philharmonic will go ahead, this is a FREE outdoor concert but you must register!
Two major sports events that normally take place in the spring have been rescheduled to November due to the pandemic, we are hoping for the return of the Hong Kong Marathon and Hong Kong Sevens!!!
For motor racing enthusiasts, the Macau Grand Prix is taking place next door this month!
And for our nature lovers, with cooler temperatures approaching, migratory birds start to flock to the marshes and our wetlands and reserves will be teeming with wildlife soon. Enjoy!
