After months of playing tourist in our own cities (with a mask on at all times), Singapore's Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung announced the developing agreement of a travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong. This would mean that travellers under this arrangement do not have to be quarantined when they arrive in their destination city – but must test negative for Covid-19 prior to the flight. There will also be restrictions on flights – transit passengers cannot board the same plane as travellers going between the two cities.
When in Hong Kong, there will be no restrictions to travellers' itineraries or on the purpose of their travel but you will have to follow rules and regulations when it comes to wearing a mask at all times and safe-distancing in shops, restaurants and public places of course.
The situation is still work in progress and no date has been officially announced for when this will happen – but we're hoping for the best outcome. And the possibility of some much-deserved travelling for the end-year holidays.
To get you inspired for the end of the year, we’ve asked our friends from Time Out Hong Kong to put together an insider’s tip on the best things to do, eat, drink and see in the city.
