    Depending on where you are in hong kong there could be an issue with the hotel and the demonstrations. I just hope that the demonstrations remain peaceful.

    At the moment the protests are concentrated around Central and Admiralty. Yes, I hope they remain peaceful and democracy shall prevail, that's something China has promised and I hope they will keep to their word.

    From what I understand they weren't all that peaceful. Our office in the area is in crisis mode and the situation is considered as "denial of access"

    I believe @marcwint55 had quite the adventure getting into the Conrad out there.

    HK is certainly not anything like Thailand

    after living there for several years, I applaud any sort of political action or protest that does not involve the typical daily life of shopping, eating Cantonese food or chasing some business deal :eek:

    Have award travel booked in late November for Hong Kong (and staying at the MO). Keeping a watchful eye.

    And here I thought Bangkok was going to be the problem city on the itinerary.

    Other than a little inconvenience, we had no real problems in Hong Kong. i actually joined the protesters for a bit as I sympathize with their cause. They were all quite pleasant and the police had greatly over-reacted earlier when using tear gas. The protests with quite peaceful and the police eventually backed off.
