hkvibes : Shops density

Shops density

One thing that fascinates me in Hong Kong streets is the way shops are glued one to another, with extremely little space left for walls or staircases. The picture above was taken in Sheung Wan and illustrates this proximity (only 10cm between the two shops). Hong Kong is not that big and every inch of land is definitely worth a lot. Though less visually attractive than endless lines of buses or neon lights, this proximity between shops highly contributes to the overall impression of non-stop activity Hong Kong is known for.
