Hong Kong is a very small place, only 825 square miles including Lantau, Kowloon, the Net Territories and its 260 outlying islands. And with only a quarter of that space developed, it’s a very very small place for all 7 million people to live.
It's also very orderly. At the train stations, someone takes the time to line up the trollies.
This is the view from my road.
The world's longest outdoor escalator. Aseries of outdoor escalators descend (or climb, depending on your perspective) 800 meters to carry tens of thousands of people to and from work each day. Believe me, escalators are necessary in this city. The hills here turn the whole place in to one big stairmaster.
My apartment at Shama Midlevels. It's tiny, not unlike living in a boat.
