This article originally appeared on www.hotelclub.com/blog. which is now part of hotels.com

Hong Kong is a modern metropolis overflowing with things to do and see. This economic hotspot and cultural hub is a magnet for travellers, holiday-goers, entrepreneurs, technophiles, and business people from every corner of the world. If you had a dozen lifetimes to spend here, you still couldn’t uncover all the secrets and excitement of her streets. So it should come as no surprise that Hong Kong’s annual events calendar is nearly as eclectic as her population and that each month brings with it a fresh new wave of innovations and attractions.

Yet with so much happening throughout the city, many visitors are overwhelmed with the task of planning what to see in their limited time here. To make things even more complicated, Hong Kong’s dynamic landscape seems to constantly transform with the seasons—not only in terms of temperature and weather, but also in the sights, events, and experiences Hong Kong offers those who flock here. So to take the guesswork out of navigating Hong Kong, we’ve brought together a group of experts to set the record straight—for 2015, anyway.

We’ve assembled a one-of-a-kind comprehensive calendar of events and attractions you won’t want to miss. The “Experience Hong Kong Calendar” gives a definitive month-by-month guide to everything from weather to crowds to seasonal sales and annual celebrations. This interactive online resource trumps even popular guidebooks by providing essential links to the resources you’ll need to plan your trip, including embedded Google Maps, links to the HK Tourism Board, websites where you can book tickets, and even price comparisons for nearby hotels.

Just click through the months to see what the average temperature is at various times of year and get a full browsable list of the city’s most interesting events. We’ve also included a set of helpful seasonal tips to help you find the best deals during peak shopping months, know what crowds to expect for the year’s biggest festivals, and fully immerse yourself in the traditions and customs of the Cantonese people.

Take November, for example, when the average temperature hovers around 20 degrees C and the city’s humidity lifts with the onset of Autumn. From the 5th-7th, wine aficionados should make their way to the Convention and Exposition Centre for the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair, which brings together more than 1000 exhibitors from around the globe. Later in the month, culture-seekers won’t want to miss the excitement of Cantonese Opera Day, when the Hong Kong Cultural Centre comes alive with theatre, dance, and costumes that have remained unchanged since the 13th century. Or if edgy and contemporary is more your speed, then head down to the Freespace Festival at the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade for what is explained as an artistically rich collection of “literary gatherings, mobile galleries dedicated to the visual arts, an organic farmers’ market, a silent disco and some of the hottest Asian and international music talent” Hong Kong has to offer.
