You may want to go to Hong Kong Wetland Parks at Tin Shui Wai

May to November is typhoon season.
Going to Hk at that time is heng-suai.
But luckily when I went to HK in end Sept and early Oct, it was rainy for a few days. But luckily it turned sunny for HK Disneyland.

Use the 5 day weather report as a guide. Fairly accurate.
dont worry just bring a raincoat and you will be fine

And wear Crocs. Was a real life saver. No need to be worried or distressed by wet shoes.

Depends on what kind of weekdays you are going on.
PH that falls on a weekday = long queue
Weekdays leading up to a major PH = long queue

Went on Friday before X-mas = 1hr 15min queue.
Can ask for "kay peu" (standing tickets) = stand all the way during cable car ride but can jump queue. Note: no discount for this.

You might want to try it for the novelty but I didn't enjoy NP360 and the NP village all that much. View is okay but not breath taking. If happen to be rainy or foggy -> can't see anything at all.
Can skip if you are short of time.

However, if you do go, try Cafe Rendezous (follow the overhead bridge from Citigate to a neighbouring building). Cafe food that beats Crytal Jade in Singapore at 2/3 the price.

The ferry service is still there, however u have to walk all the way to the outer islands pier to board the ferry (just outside IFC towers). Pier 7 i think.
