Springtime in Hong Kong

By on Sunday, April 28, 2013

At the Hong Kong Flower Show last March
I love/hate springtime in Hong Kong. I love it because it's finally not too cold for outdoor activities, but I hate it because it could be rainy one day, then foggy or too sunny the next day. I am also prone to hay fever during this season, which runs from March to May. But I love the start of it because that's the time when the leaves grow back again and the flowers begin to bloom. It can be pleasant during sunny but cool days.

This year, it had been raining every weekend, which left us no choice but to stay indoors on Saturdays and Sundays. What a shame! Spring could have been the perfect season for hiking in the many trails of Hong Kong, if it's not raining. Good thing, there are still a few activities to enjoy in Hong Kong during rainy days, which does not involve the most clichéd shopping. If you can't go park-tripping, why not go food-tripping!

Here is a list of some of our favourite food places around Hong Kong:

If food is not your trip, maybe art is – yes? It is usually in spring when the Hong Kong International Film Festival is held. Last month, we saw the Filipino indie film Bwakaw during the film fest, and even met its lead actor, Eddie Garcia. Also, Hong Kong's numerous museums feature interesting exhibits every season. Admission is only for a minimal fee of HKD20 but on Wednesdays, entrance to most of these museums' resident exhibits is free. :)
