We visited Hongkong last November 2019 with the kids. Everyone was telling us not to go since there were protests happening around the area. We did our research and reached out to all of our friends who went to HK and stay in HK. They mentioned a couple of things like not to wear black, see where the protests are scheduled (usually on weekends), and go home early since protesters are out after work.
We were able to go around with the kids. We ate in really yummy restaurants and even visited the new mall by the bay K-11. It’s always a blast traveling with the kids. We even took them to Disneyland :)
