I've been to Hong Kong about 11 times and I don't remember any mosquitoes in the cities but yes when hiking the many trails in the parks.  And I mean wilderness parks; not city parks.  I guess it depends on where you are going exactly.

If you are in Central (Business Area) or Kowloon  you will not find them, if you go to the New Territories  in the woods and the freshwater wetlands you can find them. Overall not a problem in Hong Kong.

I lived in Sek Kong many decades ago when I was a nipper. I remember that we had mosquito nets over our beds and across the windows.

But Sek Kong is in the New Territories - back then very rural, now semi-rural.

 

We've been back twice since, in Kowloon & on the island, both times in January - no mosquitos :classic_smile:
