Tens of thousands of people, mostly students, have occupied key locations in downtown Hong Kong over the past two weeks in order to demand democratic reform.
But surrounding the protest camps are some of the city’s most famous landmarks. Around the Central Government Complex in Admiralty thousands of yellow ribbons, banners and posters have been plastered all over the streets and buildings. Families, tourists and workers in their spare time are flocking to the protest site to soak up the creative atmosphere.
While the protest areas are currently safe, please be aware that the situation can change rapidly. Follow the travel advisories of your home government and pay attention to the news if you are planning to visit.
