The Infamous Chungking Mansions From The Rooftop

On my final day in Hong Kong 香港 I returned to Chungking Mansions 重慶大廈 for the third time to elucidate more of its secrets. Much to my surprise I found a rooftop access point unlocked and, with trepidation, stepped across the threshold onto the top of Tsim Sha Tsui 尖沙嘴. The view all around was incredible with buildings towering overhead but I was most fascinated by the global village beneath my feet. Chungking Mansions is organized into six towers—and here I was able to peer into the very heart of the complex, to put my finger on the pulse of this worldly microcosm.
