Shoppers' paradise, renters' hell?

You are looking at the street with the shop ranking No. 3 in the world's most expensive retail property . The junction of Hennessy Road and Yee Woo Street, Causeway Bay is the major shopping centre on the Hong Kong island and it is so crowded on Sundays and holidays that locals tend to avoid going there.

So there you are! Among the sea of lightboxes and billboards is the Addidas advertisement with David Beckham in the most expensive spot of all.

We get the impression that Beckham is quite a popular figure in the east. Why is that, do you think?


Blogger Lisi said ... (February 15, 2006 9:28 PM) : 

probably because he is a football/soccer hero plus of course, he's good looking so he gets both the guys and the gals!

Hi lisi,

I can see David Beckham but where are the people?

I was on the top deck of a bus and the buses in front were blocking the view down...if you look close you'll see people under the trees in the centre...I'll take one to show you the crowds

Great! It's fun taking pictures from buses. Sometimes they give really unexpected results.

God !! What a huge billboard! Nice advertising. Thanks to Bob's comment I really had to get close to the screen to notice the people in the bottom of the board. What a display!

Another interesting photo! I'm fascinated by Hong Kong, so this is great (though I've never been there). I right clicked on the photo of the rooftop, which gave me more detail.

ps I have just started a daily photo site from Los Angeles, if you would like to put my link on your site. I have put yours on mine.
