Top Things To Do in Hong Kong
With Kids This Summer

Mickey and Minnie on a rainy summer day

Summers in Hong Kong are hot and humid, rain is more the rule than the exception, so perhaps not the best time to visit but in the midst of the scorching heat there are some fabulous events going on that will have kids splashing their way through the coolest summer ever...

Summer time might not be as convenient but on the other hand, you are more likely to find better deals on hotels and accomodations.

What to pack for summer? Pack very light, cotton, breathable clothing, sandals, hat, etc. and also a light sweater for the air-conditioning which will be running full blast at shopping centres, restaurants and the hotel lobby.

Umbrella is essential, rain jacket not so. It gets so hot, wearing a rain jacket is very uncomfortable.

And remember, amusement parks are fun rain or shine, you are even expected to get wet at some rides. On the other hand, if it is raining too hard, some of the rides might be closed, so something to be aware of.

The wettest hottest months are June through August. Although not optimal, all is not lost, there is still much fun to be had and here are some fabulous events just to get you and the kids started!

Here are some fantastic Hong Kong events to enjoy with the kids for the coolest summer ever:
