Theodore “Ted” Catino is a successful entrepreneur. The cofounder and former co-CEO of Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation (SNAAC), he serves as a transition and interview coach for individuals hoping to find meaning in retirement or new career positions. In his free time, Ted Catino is an avid traveler who has visited such places as Hong Kong.
In the past, summertime saw cheaper hotel rates and fewer crowds, but that is not the case anymore. Despite the Hong Kong’s humid, hot summer weather, hotel prices and crowds are high between the months of June and September. Average temperatures during summer hover in the 80s, and precipitation is often about 13 inches.
Winter is also a busy time. The weather is cooler with averages in the 60s and 70s, but many travelers go to Hong Kong for the holidays.
Between April and May, Hong Kong prices and crowds ease somewhat. Spring weather is more temperate than summer weather, but there is often fog during the day until the end of April. Many national holidays occur in the spring, and they draw in huge crowds and cause prices to climb.
Visiting during fall is perhaps the best option. From October to December, room rates are average, and temperatures during the daytime stay in the 70s. The main holiday during the fall is National Day, which is celebrated on October 1.
