It is chilly in February in Kongkong. The general temperature ranges from 13 degree to 20 degree Celsius. It is warm during the day, so airy base layer - shorts, short-sleeve shirts are just ok. But it’s better to bring a thin jacket in case of the cooler temperature in early morning and evening.

Dear Sir/Madam, thanks for your inquiry. Here I’d like to answer your question. Hong Kong is located in southern China and it is the subtropical monsoon climate, the average temperature is 13?. If you will be Hong Kong at March, you’d better take some light coat with you to keep warm. Hope this can be helpful.
