Where does the sun rise in Hong Kong?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Hong Kong is Sai Kung in the region of New Territories. There, the sun rises at 6:24 am and sets at 6:35 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Tai O (New Territories) at 18:37.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Hong Kong lies on the 22nd degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, in Hong Kong, this period averages 26 minutes. In June, it's about 27 minutes in Hong Kong, while in December it's 26 minutes.
