In The News

Thee Royal Thai Consulate General in Hong Kong has posted updated information about the protests in Hong Kong on its Facebook page, advising that protesters this morning attempted to disrupt MTR metro operations on various lines and block road traffic, shutting down public bus stations at Kowloon Bay and Lai Chi Kok stations, and shutting down the Hong Kong – Kowloon tunnel.

The consulate general was also informed that protesters would escalate the protest from 1 p.m. local time today by staging strikes and rallies in seven key areas, namely Admiralty, Mong Kok, Wong Tai Sin, Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Tuen Mun, and Tai Po.

In the Facebook post, the Royal Thai Consulate General advises Thai people in Hong Kong to consider avoiding travelling to or through protest sites and neighboring areas, as well as allowing extra travel time for all modes of transportation, including travel to the airport, due to widespread road blockages and public transit disruptions.

Hong Kong International Airport has declared special operational circumstances as airline staff staged strikes today, resulting in flight cancellations. Passengers who are scheduled to travel to and from Hong Kong International Airport today should verify their flight status with the airline before travelling to the airport.
