23 August 2019
Large-scale protests have been taking place across Hong Kong since June 2019 which have become increasingly unpredictable. These protests can take place with little or no notice and could turn violent. Protests could take place this upcoming weekend at the following locations: (i) Kwun Tong (Tsun Yip Street Playground to Kwun Tong Swimming Pool) starting from 1330 hrs on 24 August; and (ii) Tsuen Wan and Kwai Tsing (Kwai Fong South Bus Terminus to Tsuen Wan Park) starting from 1500hrs on 25 August. There are also reports of protests starting from the morning of 24 August that could affect public transportation services and road access to and from Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). Traffic and public transport disruptions in these areas, including around HKIA, are to be expected. Singaporeans are advised to defer non-essential travel to Hong Kong, given current developments.
