The Practical Concerns of Hong Kong Travel
- Visas: Whilst passports and valid travel documents are a requirement on a trip to Hong Kong, visas typically aren’t for any stays of up to six months, depending on your nationality. Similarly, a Hong Kong Identity Card is only required if your stay is longer than 180 days.
- Vaccinations: Whilst Hong Kong authorities don’t require vaccinations, and you won’t need any if you plan to stay only a short while, if you’re relocating to the city for work purposes, it’s recommended that you invest in vaccinations against typhoid and hepatitis.
- Electrical Appliances: Will you be able to plug your laptop in and finish that crucial report before your big meeting? Yes, and you won’t need a converter, as most Hong Kong outlets take a three pronged UK style plug.
- Inter-City Travel: Hong Kong has a first rate inter-city travel network, ensuring that you’ll have no problem making sure you get to that pivotal meeting or essential networking event on time. Take shuttle buses from the airport, then the trains or the metro for fast, effective, inexpensive travel. Taxis will rob you blind in this city.
Enjoy Hong Kong
If you get some downtime, there’s plenty to do in Hong Kong. Attractions include the city’s version of Disneyland, the breathtaking Victoria Peak and the stunning ten thousand Buddha’s monastery. The cuisine is top notch, and if you want to sample authentic Hong Kong fare, why not try Island Tang in Central, famous for its classic take on traditional Cantonese, or Fook Lam Moon in Wan Chai, known for its mouth-watering take on dim sum.
