    In

    Do I need the "in" in the following sentence? I guess I might need it but am not too sure. Thanks for your help.

    - My brother will be in Hong Kong (in) early part of December.

    The "in" is optional, but you need "the" before "early" in either case.

    Re: In

    or you can say 'in early December' and forget about 'the part'
