  1. This vid is so stereotypical. I was born and raised in HK but I've never seen kung fu and Chinese opera here. And those kids who wear traditional clothes are not very common. What you see in the video are so touristy, rather than the daily lives of HKers.

  2. Wow, didn't expect that kind of perspective on Hong Kong, but it was made amazingly well! Of course, these are just glimpses into what Hong Kong is like, which is a lot of things not shown here :)

  5. hk is a very interesting place. Most people are millionaires here due to their once-cheap property gaining huge capital gain and market valuation. Most poor people in hk are recent immigrants from mainland china who also wanna grab a piece of hk benefits. I live in hk and even when i go to the poor side of hk, you will never see poor communities like in south america, africa or middle east. Just like any wealthy countries like canada, there r always lower income families, and in hk, the poor very often, may surprise u how much asset they actually have. Again, most poor people and families are recent immigrants from china.

  19. After the invasion of the communist china, HK is considered a dead city, nonhumans city. Poor people get abused by the rich people. Incompetent communist gangs government with corruption, bribery gangs chief and officers. This city is getting worst.

  29. An average property price is bout 600k+ and that'll just buy you a place a size of your living room, most graduates would never afford it and the government is disconnected from reality
