Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong Island
How could anyone call this beautiful? But it is, in its own way – imagine all the stories of life behind all these window, each one a human being with its hopes and dreams. To the Western eye it looks crowded, to the Hong Kongers’ Eye it means home – though it comes at a price. 650 sqft for 22,800 $HK (2015) monthly rent is nothing out of the ordinary.
