Queen's Road Central

A street scene at Queen's Road in Central around 5 pm on a Friday, just before the crowds would take over every corner. Queen's Road is one of the oldest streets in the business and shopping center on HK island. Tips: to the left side of this photo (the direction which the pink shirt lady is going) is Lan Kwai Fong, perfect spot for a TGIF happy hour!

I prefer not so wide roads, in Lima, the capital city of Perú, the roads are so wide, with 6 lines of cars. A lot of stress.

Greetings from Perú

Really nice shot. Where were u standing exactly? When I think BA is super crowded, I guess I'll be shocked to land in HK, where it is even more crowded I suppose, just by the sight of this photo :)

Nice one, I like this kind of photos these they never put in tourist guides. I'd like to see the rush hour too ;-)

Irredento, there are wider road in HK, maybe not 6-lane in the city but since Queen's Road is an older one.

Karine, wait till you see Causeway Bay, the crowds there is incredible and for the really enthusiastic shoppers only. Mostly I prefer to stay around Central or Wanchai ;-)

For everybody, yes, very crowded in HK so if you are visiting, be prepared!

It's true that the white guy sticks out. Not in a bad way or anything, just an observation.
