Chippy Hong Kong

One great culinary experience that both Beijing and Hong Kong share is a British-style fish and chip shop. Beijing's version is Fish Nation in the Nanluoguxiang hutong, Hong Kong has Chippy not far from the Soho district near Central on Hong Kong Island.

So if you are missing fish and chips, a full English breakfast or even a deep fried Mars bar or Apple Crumble, the Chippy can ease the ache.

July Weather in Beijing

July and August are the two months with the most rain in the city and the time when the temperature can get up to around 38 degrees Centigrade, especially in July, which is Beijing's hottest month.




Temperatures begin to lessen slightly in August, due to Beijing's northerly location.
