Crowd InformationHong Kong gets very busy during its two major festivals, Chinese New Year (falling in late January to mid-February) and Golden Weeks in May and October. Chinese New Year is a major holiday for the city and many people come to celebrate. The Golden Weeks attract mostly local travelers, and hotels are usually around 80 percent full.
Closure InformationMost hotels, shops, and attractions remain open throughout the year. However, many establishments close for Chinese New Year and the following two days, as many families take time off to celebrate together.
When to SaveThe most expensive time to visit is during the Chinese New Year and Golden Weeks. Visitors can save money from late November through January, especially during the Hong Kong WinterFest when many shopping and dining promotions are available.
