Weather in Hong Kong in May is far from ideal, but it’s by no means the worst time to pencil in a visit to the city. The average temperature for May in Hong Kong is a hot under the collar, although not unpleasant 25C (77F).
The temperature may seem like outdoor weather, but unfortunately May in Hong Kong is when the city’s humidity really starts to crank up and, while it’s ideal beach weather, the humidity can be tough on those who want to do a lot of walking on the city streets.
Rain can also be a major problem in May. Precipitation averages 292mm and, with an average of 13 days of wet weather, up to half the month can be damp. May also marks the start of the Typhoon season, and although typhoons don’t usually show up until later in the summer, a May typhoon can play havoc with your holiday.
