If you are allergic to pollen, other attractions, such as Yu Garden, Wild Animal Park and Happy Valley are friendlier. People with allergy are advised to wear a mask and take anti-allergic medication before going out, and wash their hands on coming back. It is the month of interchanging seasons, a likely time for the flu, so be hygienic, get the habit of frequent hand washing. Carry your cold medicine. Always be weather conscious on planning a tour. Damp mornings and evenings make it inhospitable to watch peach blossoms. Do avoid such time.
