We arrived in Hong Kong yesterday. The biggest concern was around the ongoing Hong Kong protests which have been going on since this summer.Despite our worries, the city of Hong Kong looks calm. It may be because we are staying only weekdays and they more often have protests during weekends. However, when we walked through the subway in Tsim Sha Tsui district, which is one of the most popular areas for tourists, we saw lots of torn posters on the wall — my photo is not very focused, though.
It was reported that an explosion happened on the day before yesterday in Mong Kok which is not very far from our hotel.https://www.hongkongfp.com/2019/10/14/suspected-improvised-explosive-device-discovered-hong-kong-protest/
***Last night we joined the evening cruise in Victoria Harbour. We got on the boat at 7:55 from Tsim Sha Tsui ferry pier. The symphony of lights–lights and sound show–stared at 8. It was raining when we arrived at Hong Kong airport, but it stopped raining before the evening so we could enjoyed the beautiful illuminated buildings and the lights show from the boat.
I think the night cruise must be one of the highlights of any Hong Kong trip for tourists, but there were not many passengers yesterday.
