After months of playing tourists in our own cities (with a mask on at all times), Singapore and Hong Kong will launch the much-awaited air travel bubble between the two cities on May 26. Borders will open for both cities, and there are no restrictions on the purpose of travel for visitors as long as they prove they have tested negative for the coronavirus. Travellers from Hong Kong will also have to be fully vaccinated before departing on flights to Singapore. Some exceptions are made for children and those not suitable for vaccination on medical grounds.
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 the rules and regulations when it comes to wearing a mask at all times and safe-distancing in shops, restaurants, and public places of course.
To get you inspired to travel, 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.
