⚠️ Travel advice
High degree of caution
A protracted violent clash between protestors and police at Polytechnic University has spread into nearby areas in Kowloon (including TST, Yau Ma Tei, Hung Hom and Jordan), with extensive use of tear gas. Avoid demonstrations. If you come across protests, move away to a safe place. Across Hong Kong, the risk of violent protests continues. Expect road closures, disruption to transport and education services and heightened police action. We haven't changed our level of advice - 'exercise a high degree of caution' in Hong Kong.
