This might be interesting to people. This is what it looks like to walk around parts of Hong Kong at night...this is the Wanchai area...which is on Hong Kong Island...

My mother spent her adolescent years in Wan Chai. She grew up during the days of traffic wardens, open air bazaars, street stall restaurants (the once ubiquitous "dai pai dohng"), and even the notorious Lockhart Road and its seedy topless bars and x-rated cinemas where foreign soldiers and sailors used to frequent (though she lived on the other side of Wan Chai). Boy have times changed!

Judging by the video, it looks like winter because everyone is wearing sweaters, jackets, or long sleeve shirts. The last time I visited Wan Chai, it was sweltering hot even at night and I could smell the sewers and the traffic congestion. Yet like many other parts of HK, it remains absolutely vibrant to the senses.
