      Hostel Is Okay, Chungking Mansions Building Is Terrible

      The City Guesthouse is an okay hostel. Rooms are small (around 5m2) yet we knew this beforehand. The price for a deluxe room is quite decent for the location and considering that Hong Kong is an expensive city to stay. Room had airco, and was generally clean but didn't have any windows.

      The hostel is located within Chungking Mansion, which is an inhospitable run-down building in which you do not want to stay. Before you get to the elevator for the hostel you need do walk past a kind of bazaar with lots of run-down shops and people. Elevators are slow (long waiting time) and mostly very crowded. Next to this, the building didn't have any good escape routes, and with all the unfinished electrical wiring it seems that such a route might very well come in handy. Last day we walked past the "mansions" and witnessed a firetruck stopping in front of the building and a team of fireman entering the building; adding to our worries.

      Would not visit again or recommend.

      ... and gardens. It was great. We did get a bit sick of shops though - they are everywhere, going on for miles and miles, everybody shopping all the time ?? who has all this money ? clearly not us. I think it may be the Chinese - they come here to shop from mainland China because of the low tax. Throughout it all we wandered for ages in Hong Kong Island itself, which is what we like to do in big cities. Rob took endless photos of buildings, footpaths, walls, corners and generally things ...

I believe that real estate values in China have been coming down, but there is still an enormous amount of growth happening. Growth is supposed to be slowing down, but for someone who hasn’t seen it before, there still seems to be a lot of things happening. There is a lot of building happening in Hong Kong too.

      ... got a selfie with Buddha and some landscape shots of the outlying islands to the south west of Hong Kong.

      We walked back down the steps, which was only marginally easier than walking up, and then set off along the Wisdom Path. I'm not sure we were any wiser on reaching the end of it but we did at least appreciate the shade. Plus, the path was lined with tea plants and so we could enjoy the pleasant scent of tea whilst we ambled. At the end of the path was ...

      ... as an outsider.

      One thing I've noticed about Hong Kong is the lack of crime. I haven't been anywhere in Hong Kong yet where I didn't feel safe. I think it's because the punishments for crimes are so harsh plus Hong Kong has such a professional atmosphere (even among the lower class) that it seems doing something wrong doesn't even cross their mind. For example, while I have been locking my dorm door, I have never really felt the need to. Nothing in my room ...

      ... Hong Kong Basic Law, its constitutional document, which stipulates that Hong Kong shall have a "high degree of autonomy" in all matters except foreign relations and military defence, governs its political system. Although it has a burgeoning multi-party system, a small-circle electorate controls half of its legislature. The head of the government, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, is chosen by an Election Committee of 400 to 1,200 members, a situation that will ...
