When to visit?
Due to its subtropical nature, Hong Kong is accepting visitors all around the year. The summers, however, tend to be hot and humid and the winters cold and dry. The spring and autumn months will have you shudder with delight. The best times to visit this place is from March to April and from October to November. May to September welcomes typhoons and hence not tourists. December to February is too cold and try to experience Hong Kong at its absolute best.
Average cost per person
The prices of a Hong Kong trip aren’t too exuberant, but they can be higher than a lot of other cities. It will take you about 20-25,000 rupees for the return ticket flight. If booked earlier they can be lesser. Hotel costs do not go past 4,500 rupees. If you want to cut costs down, even more, trying looking into hostels. Food is cheap, and the quality of the cuisine is excellent at meager prices. It will not go beyond 4,000 rupees. Don’t miss out on Disneyland even if it is a little expensive. An experience like that does not come back again.
The process of Visa to get into Hong Kong for Indian citizens is a relatively free process. You can enter the for 14 days without an actual Visa. There is just an online process called the pre-arrival registration. This will be valid till 6 months from issue.

That is if you hold a travel pass or are frequent travelers.

Admiralty and Wan Chai:
These two can be confused with each other in the minds of visitors. They both lie close to Central but differ in their own ways. Wan Chai is the principal commercial area of Hong Kong. It has a lot more of a spacious feel about it. The Hong Kong Exhibition center and Convention center lie here. Admiralty is a more upmarket that Wan Chai.
Admiralty is home to the Bauhinia Square. This is where people come to watch the sunsets with gaping mouths.

This place known as Shun Kee is made of floating wooden boats in Causeway Bay. This is located in the protective area for these boats in the typhoons. Thousands of boat dwellers used to run this place once upon a time. But these restaurants were shut down due to hygiene problems. This is the only place that came back. The wok here is one of the best you will have.
The Happy Valley horse races are the most nerve-racking of spots in Hong Kong. The races take place from September to June in the evenings from 7-11.

Pork is a very integral part of life here in Hong Kong. This city on its own consumes about 10,000 pigs in a day. The best-barbequed pork called char siu is this tender, slow-cooked dish with a honey red glaze. Joy Hing is the best place for this dish. Layers and layers of briny roast pork are here to save your life. This is the best thing you will ever eat.
Anyone from an Asian place gets very impressed and is open to warmer conversations if you know as few phrases in their words. If you see anyone does greet them with “Jon sun” to begin with. You can also say “Nei hou ma? Sek jor faan mei?” which says how are you? Have you eaten rice yet?
Hong Kong never shuts off its air conditioning. It is literally always on. So, you will find yourself sweating like the infamous pig one minute and then shivering the next. Be sure to have your layers on or around you at a moment’s notice.
Tea is a big deal here. So, if you are refilling glasses, remember to fill them from the eldest to the youngest. They take this very seriously. Also, tap your pointer and middle finger as a thank you on the table. This is useful when your mouth is full, and you don’t want to interrupt.
This place has some of the best public transportation in all over the world. It is incredibly cheap to get around. There are so many options to get to, and they will get you around quick and efficiently. The subway system (MTR) is excellent.
