Autumn is on the horizon, and with it, comes the natural beauty of the autumn leaves. Here, we list the best places in Hong Kong to see them

There are plenty of scenic places to visit in Hong Kong during autumn––from sunrise spots, to hiking trails and picnic areas. But nothing conjures the spirit of autumn more than the autumn leaves. Our neighbours, Japan and South Korea might be the postcard image of the autumn foliage, but with travel still off the cards, a visit there can wait.

Instead, you’ll be surprised to know that we have plenty of places in the city where you can also see the seasonal leaves. Pack your picnic baskets and wear your cosiest sweaters––we’re listing the best places in Hong Kong where you can enjoy a day out frolicking amidst the autumn leaves.

Editor’s note: The best time to see the autumn leaves is typically between November to January. However, since this is a natural phenomenon, the colours may change depending on the weather and climate and may vary each year.
