Are you planning a trip to Hong Kong but are scared of the protests?

 

However, Raymond Chan, Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) Regional Director for Southeast Asia, assured Filipino travelers that Hong Kong is safe to travel in the urban hub in spite of the ongoing protests.

 

“Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the world. Given the current situation, the tourism attractions in my opinion are not impacted, and transportation is still operating as it should,” Chan said.

 

Chan guaranteed that “Hong Kong is an ideal getaway for lots of Filipinos” and one can still go there “anytime of the year.”

 

However, he advised that it is better to visit Hong Kong during winter or “Ber” months.

 

“To me, I would definitely advise Filipino travelers to try to visit Hong Kong during winter because… in just 90 minutes, Filipinos can experience to really get away from the corporate heat and experience cool weather and second thing, Christmas is a big thing for people in the Philippines and in Hong Kong as well and it’s really festive in Hong Kong,” Chan added.
