Hong Kong Border to Re-Open for Macau and Guangdong Travel Bubble

So many are waiting for Hong Kong’s borders to reopen and there is hope on the horizon with reports of plans for a Hong Kong, Macau, and Guangdong Travel Bubble.

As reported by RTHK, the plan would allow for people to move freely without quarantine depending upon a health code system to help indicate a person’s Coronavirus risk level. It may expand to even include other nations with Thailand mentioned.
