From 26 September 2022, inbound travellers from overseas places or Taiwan arriving at Hong Kong International Airport will no longer be required to undergo compulsory hotel quarantine; instead, the new ‘0+3’ boarding and medical surveillance arrangements will apply. Please refer to the Government's official press releases and our concise guide for more information.
As a global financial centre, Hong Kong has a high paced work rhythm. As such, rush hour in the city can be crowded and intense. Rush hour is typically around 7:30am to 9:30am, and 5:30pm to 7:30pm Mondays to Fridays, while office lunch hours takes place from around 12:30pm to 2pm.
Be smart with your planning and try to avoid travel during those times. You don’t want to be caught in the crowds.
Hong Kong is known for orderliness, which is embodied in locals’ respect for the queue. Not just for public transport, Hong Kong people queue up for ticketing counters, bathrooms, restaurants, the latest products, store openings, giveaways and more. If others are on the same mission as you – join the queue.
