Packing List for Hong Kong - Prepare to checklist!

With a whole array of excitement in store, from the bustling streets to the beautiful hiking trails, Hong Kong is an excellent place to discover with many experiences on offer. Here is a list to help you with packing so that you make sure you are ready for anything that comes your way here.


Travel Insurance

Before travelling to almost any place on earth, it is best to form a habit of checking for travel insurance. This will definitely save you both plenty of time, money and worry if you ever run into a tricky situation. An excellent travel insurance policy should cover things like medical care and the replacement of lost items that can be a daunting experience for anyone in a foreign country.



Hong Kong is a highly sought-after travel destination by people from all across the world. This makes it easy to find great flights almost anywhere on the internet. For the best offers makes sure you compare with multiple places and book as early as possible to bring the costs down



Make sure your passport is up to date and doesn't expire anytime soon. This is because the Hong Kong authorities require at least one month more in terms of its validity from the date of your expected departure from Hong Kong.



While citizens of most countries are allowed to enter Hong Kong visa-free or even have visa on arrival, it is best that you read up on the restrictions or requirements online that pertain to your country. The Hong Kong immigration website provides plenty of information on this topic.



Do not forget to pack whatever medication that you need to take, along with the prescription for it provided by your doctor. Pack those both into your luggage so that you do not run into any issues when you enter the country. If you're looking for a Sheung Wan hotel for accommodation in Hong Kong, there are many great choices to pick from, like Travelodge Central in Hollywood Road for example.


Debit and Credit Cards

With ATM's all across the country and cards being a widely accepted form of payment, it'll be easier to carry your Credit or Debit Cards with you, rather than a whole lot of cash. Make sure to notify your local bank of your travels to Hong Kong so that they can keep track and activate them for international use.


Document Scans

Another great thing to make note of is to keep scans or even photos of documents like your passport identity page, driver's license, visa or anything else important. Have them on your phone as well as on your email, should you need to quickly retrieve them.



The underground MRT in Hong Kong is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to get around the city. Getting the MRT app on your phone be it Android or iOS makes it so much easier to check train times so that you can plan your trips much faster and easier than before.
