"National Day Holidays." Hong Kong Local Custom Tip by John6868

Hong Kong Local Customs: 288 reviews and 393 photos

In Hong Kong we only get 1 day off which is the 1st October. On the mainland they get between 7 and 10 days but there has been talk recently of stopping this holiday as it is very disruptive. Many mainland tourists will visit HK during that period. It is also made busy by the fact that it is Fair season. You have a big Electronics fair and the Canton fair around late September to mid October which will make finding accomodation more difficult. On the plus side the weather is great then with little chance of rain and warm sunny weather.
If you can get a deal which includes accomadation then come. If you want to find a hotel yourself then expect to pay between 60 and 80% more than the months either side.
