    during the summer season

    Dear all,

    Do you say ,"during the summer season"?

    e.g. I'm going to vist Hong Kong during the summer season.

    If you do, is that different from saying "during the summer"?

    Thank you!

    Re: during the summer season

    If you're referring to some event/activity that has various seasons, then use "the summer season"; otherwise, just use "the summer."

    For example, there might be two seasons for horse racing in Hong Kong (one in the summer and one in the winter). In that case, you could use "during the summer season" meaning "during the summer horse-racing season."

    Speaking as a HongKonger, there is only one.

    For simplicity, I wouldn't use "to visit", "during" or "season". I'd say "I'm going to Hong Kong over the summer".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
