You can really see all kinds on public transport in Hong Kong. So why not tear your eyes away from your phone and engage in a little people-watching on your next ride on the Hong Kong MTR? You might just spot one of these fellow train riders.
There’s always that one person in every train carriage who seems to think the hand-rail is there specifically for them to lean on. And no amount of prodding them with your knuckles will get them to budge. The Hong Kong MTR experience isn’t complete without encountering one of these greedy hogs.
You can tell by how deeply they’re bonding over Candy Crush.
The Hong Kong MTR is fast, but don’t they realize that trying to run through a dense crowd won’t get you anywhere any faster?
Can’t that important phone call wait until you’re actually at the office?
Admit it. You’ve totally laughed at that one friend who didn’t quite make it on the train before the doors closed and stared after the rest of their friend group like this.
You’ve never felt true fear until you’ve experienced a fellow commuter about to faceplant right onto your shoulder due to being too deeply asleep.
