Hong Kong Weather in May

Averages By Month

May Overview


The rainy days are now significantly more frequent with an average of around 16 in May, which is why it is now recommended to prepare for rain in any case, as in all summer months! The sea temperatures with an average of 79°F (26°C) are now also quite warm as well as the weather which now has an average of 75°F (24°C) to 83°F (28°C).

It is a good idea at this time to take one of the Star Ferry passenger ferries that cross Victoria Harbor between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula. This gives you the opportunity to get a very special view of the city in any weather.

Best Time to Visit Hong Kong

For pleasant, cool and sunny weather, the best time to visit Hong Kong is in the fall to early winter, roughly from October to late December. The weather is then somewhat drier and pleasantly cool, perfect for tourist activities. In the period from October to May there is also less risk of heavy storms and typhoons.


If you are particularly into festivals and crowds, you should pick the months of January and February. In this time the Chinese New Year Festival and the Lantern Festival take place and there is a lot to discover!
