As the longstanding financial capital of Asia, Hong Kong is decidedly more formal than other cities in the region. Even in the city’s warm climate, conservative business attire is expected.
- A well-tailored dark blue suit is the standard coat of arms for businessmen in Hong Kong, and even outside of the boardroom, most restaurants and clubs require a jacket and tie.
- A dark skirt and heels are the norm for women's wear, even in the summer.
- Make sure you have a plentiful supply of business cards — failing to offer one may suggest you don't want to make the person's acquaintance.
