    November will be getting cold and a bit too late for those autumn leafs. Perhaps you should wait for the spring which probably coming in Feb Mar

    Read e-news today, there will be fireworks in HK on 1/10 (China's National Day) for about 23 minutes! Cathay is having a ticket promo at S$398 for 2 pax, must travel by end of Oct though.

    erm, NOV in HK shd be ok. been there in dec and could still walk around with T-shirt.(but dunno y the locals wrap themselves like ba-zhang)

    panos of the view from victoria's peak is a must, also the harbour front.(something like one fullerton)

    the night life is pretty vibrant and u can get some good shots i guess

    try the dim sum, the roasted pig etc, wanton noodles, beef balls...

    the food not so great lah, spore better!

    erm, and check out the night markets!!!

    if free can visit shenzhen(though must be careful of con men there!!!)

    dunno i can stand the cold weather when i just go back from singapore for 2 weeks after that i will start to feel cold also ...... around the same temperture

    actually i feel the view from victoria's peak is not the best
    was behind all those building
    bo ma shan( 寶馬山 ) is better but you will need to walk up instead of taking tram
    take around 15 min to walk up from the nearest bus stop

    There are no autumn leaves in HK, try further north like Japan. My last trip to HK back in 1989 was wearing T shirt and singlet.

    How weather changes.

    Victoria Peak ain't too bad, you just have to know where to walk. See this link to know what I mean. Nov is an excellent time to travel to Hong Kong, just make sure that you bring along a jacket or something that you can easily remove. Shopping for new or used photography stuff is a must, but you will need to know where to get them from. See this link.
