    Oh, my goodness. How terrible is that? It's sad to see people in such awful conditions.

    look. it's only "cage" style, cuz Hong Kong is crazy hot especially in the summer, so they use wires and not bug-chewable wood. HK government already builds thousands of huge apartments and sell them at almost base price.

    well they are in no way lucky but, it could be much worst, the landlord said it himself if they were not living in those cage homes they would be living out in the streets(at least a few of them have tv's for entertainment right)

    that's what happens when families have dozens of children all for the goal of having many sons: overpopulation, cramped living, and scarce jobs.

    Not all people in Hong Kong live like that since I've went to Hong Kong before and visit my dad friend there. This is a place where poor people live in Hong Kong and because the rent is low.

    continued: Would you say the same thing about NYC after seeing the homeless there? How about LA, of SF? Lisbon? I've seen the shanty towns of Lisbon first hand, but I would never say it's not so great and exciting.

    Hong Kong is like any big city out there, not enough room for the people that want to live there. To say Hong Kong is not all that great and exciting is very myopic.

    Japan is another city w/ space problem.. rent is just as bad if not worst.. except Japan is so much cleaner than most Asian cities.. but then again any big cities you face costly rental properties

    I have a relative there - family of 6.. they doing fairly well(financially).. but they share 450sq ft Flat... They seem ok w/ it.. I must have been so spoiled cos I couldnt even go to the restroom w/o hitting against walls trying to sit.

    and that's y you shoulda bought a small one person apartment then when you're done living in it resell it for a bit higher. even if it's higher people would still buy it.
