Extreme Accommodations

I heard that some suites at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong cost more than HK$40,000 a day. I was also told that the larger swimming pool to the left on the roof top is shared by the hotel’s guests. But the two smaller ones to the right are private, each being attached to a penthouse suite. I wonder whether these are the $40,000 ones.

On the other hand, there are still plenty of places in Hong Kong where people don’t even have private kitchens or toilets, such as this one at the ShekKipMei Estate where the woman does the cutting and cooking outside. Actually this building has been cleared out and is being torn down, and I have no idea where this woman is living now. But there are plenty who are living in even more cramped conditions.
