Q: Where is the one and only uncrowded place in Hong Kong?
A: The stairs in the subway at rush hour.
Apparently I was the only one who decided to forgo the 15 person queue on both of the up escalators in the subway and take the 73 “stairs to health”, as the campaign lining the stairwell suggested. By the time I had reached the top of the stairs and turned to take my photo, I really expected to see at least one in-a-big-hurry Hong Konger who had wisely opted for the steps, but no. Not even one.
