On our recent trip to Hong Kong, I learned about the precarious housing situation that is harsh reality for a few hundred thousand people there. The so-called subdivided units are a special form of housing in Hong Kong nobody likes to speak about. Once regular apartments, they were divided into multiple units, mostly in an illegal manner. Some provide as little as ~4 square meters (40 square feet) of space for people to live.
In the following pictures, each A/C unit seen from the outside represents one apartment (and some have none), where sometimes multiple people live:
Since these flats obviously lack sanitary spaces, their inhabitants are forced to use public sanitary spaces such as this public sport center:
The following buildings do not host subdivided units, but they don't look much more inviting either:
Wise words from the Dog of Wisdom: If your ball is too big for your mouth, it's not yours.
I'm here to learn and progress. Honest feedback and criticism on my images is warmly appreciated!
