Hong Kong’s dark skies….

Dark clouds over Hong Kong

Without a doubt, right now is not the right time to visit Hong Kong. From May all the way to July/August you’ll experience the infamous subtropical “rain season”. That means, the thermostat is going up towards 30C and stays between 28C and 34C – day and night. Throw in a bit of humidity (80% to 99%) and you end up with a “real feel” temperature of more than 40C. The moment you leave your hotel you’ll start sweating. And you start freezing once you enter one of the hundreds of shopping malls here – they cool is down to what must be 18C….

However, the rain season allows you to take some staggering photos of Hong Kong. Last Saturday, after my Chinese class, I walked around Tsim Sha Tsui, the southern Tip of the Kownloon peninsula that allows stunning views on Hong Kong’s business districts – Central, Admiralty and Wanchai.

The clouds were spectacular. Unfortunately I only had my iPhone with me to take photos. Nevertheless, they turned out pretty good….
