Weather on Victoria peak

The subtropical climate of Hong Kong means it is hot and humid in summer and cool and dry in winter.

In Spring, from Feb to Apr, it is still cool from winter.  Rain starts but normally not heavy.

In summer, the temperature ranges from 30 – 33 C every day and during the hottest month August, it may reach 34C!  Rainy season also falls in summer so it’s hot and wet.  Certainly not the best time to visit Hong Kong.

Autumn is very short in HK, Oct is still hot, maximum 30C.  By Nov, it starts to be more comfortable with temperature ranging 25-28C and dry.

By Dec, winter arrives and temperature drops to around 18-20C on average and below 15C occasionally.

Temperatures on Victoria Peak are often one or two degrees C lower than those at sea level, this is of course historically why Europeans chose to build houses on the peak.

During the cloudy and rainy times of the year low clouds can shroud the Peak Tower and prevent any interesting views from being seen, hence it is best to schedule your visit in the summer, autumn or winter periods to make the most of your day on Victoria Peak.


While often visited for the view the visitor should not forget that The Peak encompasses a wide range of dining options, from the casual to the sophisticated.  Within The Peak area are examples of many of Hong Kong's most authentic and distinctive styles, as well as international choices to fit all palates and budgets.
