30 Days to the Olympics

By Butterboom Writers  /  July 8, 2008

Ready or not, like it or not, here it comes.


Time sure flies by, it seemed like only last week the Torch Relay was happening, and now the official countdown clock tells us the Beijing 2008 Olympics is only 30 days away.

Butterboom has questions: Will the streets be rife with tourists? How come we haven’t seen any crazy Olympics stuff in the city and only at the Hong Kong Airport? Will there be more security in public spaces? Will tourists be ripped off on their shopping? We’ll be following how this event affects the Hong Kong shopping scene as we head towards what will probably be a more crazy time than the 1997 handover for the people of our fair city!
