Take precautions against mosquito bites, as there is a slight risk of Dengue fever. Outbreaks of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease are reported annually. Hong Kong's health facilities are first class, but expect to pay cash. High quality medical care is widely available but comprehensive medical insurance is recommended to cover expenses.
