March 31, 2008City of life
Hong Kong well deserves to be dubbed as the “City of Life”. One reason for that may be the ongoing traffic along the main roads and corridors throughout the city. On Kowloon side, most of the traffic is located on Nathan Road, on which buses draw a continuous line between Tsim Sha Tsui and Prince Edwards at least. Concerning the island, the main streets link Sheung Wan to Causeway Bay and beyond, such as Queen’s Road Central, Hennessy Road or Gloucester Road. The picture above is taken from a thin bridge over Gloucester Road, almost in front of Central Plaza, and looking towards the East and Causeway Bay. The picture below is a similar view taken by day. Speed, lights and pollution are probably the most visible signs of this non stop activity Hong Kong is famous for.
