Q: Is It OK To Travel In Hong Kong? PDF Print E-mail

Our local seniors group plans a trip to the Chinese city in the next several months, but I keep reading about the daily demonstrations. I use a cane and in OK physical shape for my advanced years, but fearful. I may be out on the city streets when an out-of-control mob and cop confrontation gets to me. Suggestions? MPL, Houston TX

A: Considering the ongoing Hong Kong troubles, reconsider joining the trip. So far, the demonstrations have been mostly non-violent, but growing and louder numbers nightly are causing more serious police actions. Unfortunately, the confrontations may get dangerously violent.

Maybe try to convince your group to choose a more peaceful Pacific destination, such as Singapore, Seoul, Manila, Honolulu or Shanghai.
