I've had a read through the forum and know that a similar question has been asked before but wanted some more information specific to my situation- thanks in advance!
I've been offered a job that sounds good and am a single late 20s woman who will be moving with my cat/no other dependants. I don't speak any language other than English (nor apparently do many of my would-be colleagues) but am up for an adventure, to work hard, learn lots and experience more of the world. I am a UK citizen currently living in australia and in fairness am happy here- its not a 'need to leave' situation just a new opportunity.
Is HK a safe place to be? Friends have expressed concern about moving somewhere with so much political volatility. I accept there are risks but don't want to be reckless, or in a situation where I can't go out/make friends due to security concerns.
I have no intention of becoming politically active but also don't want to end up accidentally hindering the pro-democracy movement by my inaction/getting in their way. Would it be better for HK for people like me to stay away?
thanks very much for your thoughts
