Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China is a city state on the south coast of China on the South China Sea.

There are so many facets to Hong Kong, with its world-famous harbour, world-class hotels, the excitement of its restaurants, and nightlife, that travellers are sometimes surprised to learn the depth of its history, culture, and its geographical wonders.

Hong Kong Island or Kowloon
Whether you stay on Hong Kong Island or in Kowloon, on the mainland, enjoy the famous, and all-too-short, cruise across the harbour on the “Star Ferry”…an event in itself! In Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, you’ll find some of Asia’s, and perhaps the world’s, best shopping, and dining against the backdrop of beautiful Victoria Harbour and the Island…even more unforgettable, after sunset.

High Tea, Macao and Victoria Peak
You won’t want to miss high tea at the famous old-world “Peninsula Hotel”, or the roof-top restaurant & lounge at the Shangri-La. From Hong Kong Island, take a day trip to Portuguese Macao, or Lantau Island for some beach time, or browse through the Museum of History. Above all, keep a day reserved for the fabled tram ride up Victoria Peak and a breath-taking panorama of the harbour and the distant hills towards China.

There is No Risk of Malaria in Hong Kong

There is No Risk of Yellow Fever in Hong Kong

Advice for Travellers to all Destinations

The Vaccinations and Medications that are needed for travel vary from person-to-person. Everyone should have a personal risk assessment with a travel health professional to take into account a range of factors such as itinerary, medical condition, occupational and lifestyle risk factors and previous vaccination history.

All Travellers

All Travellers should ensure that they are up-to-date with Routine Vaccinations including Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

Most Travellers

Most travellers will also need to consider a course or booster of Hepatitis A and Typhoid as there is a risk of these diseases across most parts of the world.

Some Travellers

Some Travellers may also be advised additional vaccinations such as Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis and Hepatitis B based on their individual risk assessment.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Hong Kong

Whilst wrapped up in the excitement of planning for your journey, you will want to ensure that some of the less pleasant aspects of travel to Asia do not threaten to spoil your trip. To be absolutely sure you are safe and have the necessary vaccinations for Hong Kong, please contact us for an appointment at least two weeks prior to your departure.

Generally food and drink is of a high quality in Hong Kong. The quality and reputation of most establishments on the Island and in Kowloon, in particular, is unquestionable. Certainly in the major hotels, shopping areas, and malls such as Ocean City, for example, travellers should be at ease in enjoying their meals, and experimenting with local specialties.

That said, it is always a good idea to get the opinion of your hotel concierge, for example, or to check local publications before trying out an unknown restaurant. There are certain floating restaurants, called barges in places like “Aberdeen” which serve fresh-caught seafood and certain of them are excellent, but again, it is always advisable to use caution.

No matter where you are, unless you are in a 4-star Hotel, such as Hyatt, Shangri-La, Hilton, etc., and you know the water has been boiled, it is always best to use bottled water to avoid any intestinal difficulties during your trip, and afterwards.

Hong Kong benefits from one of the most efficient public transportation systems anywhere. Busses, trains, and the ever-present Star Ferry can take you anywhere you wish to go at very reasonable rates. The Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour is still considered the cheapest ride in the world. Taxis are plentiful, and the drivers, most of whom speak passable English, are courteous and knowledgeable.

In the event that you require medical attention, clinics and hospitals are plentiful and well-managed. However, it’s important to ensure that your health insurance is up-to-date before departure.
