Hong Kong


It's quite common to have buses fully covered with advertisements.

Not any longer here (NL). The blocked view disorientates passengers and turns them slightly sick.

Not just that even those minature die-cast bus models have wrap around advertisements as well.

Honestly, they look more attractive compared to the ordinary ones.

Copenhagen's are a bit discreet compared to those - the are ussually on the side and back of the busses with a few inside aswell..

I never like commercials on buses and trains. I just like 'em in their pure form

The trend here seems to be that advertising is decreasing. Plenty of vehicles now just remain in their operators' corporate colours mixed with brown because it is currently illegal to wash body panels using tap water. That could also be a factor that's preventing extra advertising from appearing too.

I know that feeling. They make them semi-transparent, but if you try to look out through the window, everything's a blur and you get dizzy :/

I remember there were TVs on the upper level of City Buses in Hong Kong when I went there in 2005.

I love these sharks.
Especially the second one. It's fun to see people entering the bus.
Very interesting bus advertising.

That's pretty creative stuff for SG bus ad. Too bad we don't do that in HK

I haven't seen such advertising for double decker buses in SG. Since HK's mostly double decker, I guess thats why.
