Have a vacation to Hong Kong booked for mid-Dec. We’re intrepid travelers, but the news has me wondering if we should be worried about needing to cancel. Any thoughts on safety given the news?

If you speak mandarin you might need to cancel but if you are Caucasian, it’s good for you to go there right now

I’d avoid the metro one of my friends visiting got hit with some sort of bamboo stick at a station by the police. He posted pictures on Facebook and the cuts looked painful.

Just be aware of your surroundings and you’ll be fine. Most of the protests are in Sunday’s, so just keep that in mind.

Protests are daily but in specific parts of HK. Just be aware, and you’ll be okay.

don't wear all white or all black either if you're Asian

Thanks, all - I wasn’t too stressed but some people got me second-guessing. I’m white American and we’ll be in the usual tourist areas on weekdays so sounds like with a few doses of common sense we’ll be ok

I have expat mates that live there. Hasn't impacted their lives much. If in doubt, get a cab

Short of the chicoms rolling over protesters with tanks, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to calm down there soon.
