A fly on the ointment, NO visibility information in the same page
However, there is one defect in this useful weather information webpage for visitors.
It does not show the visibility information of Hong Kong.
Although visitors can get Hong Kong’s visibility information in another page of Hong Kong Observatory, this actually brings inconvenience to visitors.
Visitors can enjoy the amazing Hong Kong skyline and nice Victoria Harbor view at the Victoria Peak and waterfront promenade easily when the visibility is high.
It is important for the visitors to know the latest visibility information.
This helps visitors to catch the opportune time to see the great view.
Frank the tour guide also checks the visibility information before his Hong Kong private tour service to make sure his clients see the good view.
Frank hopes Hong Kong Observatory can add visibility data to the Hong Kong weather information for tourists page in the future.
