You might want to keep it that way if you think the outside is bad, the inside is usualy much worse!!

Generally it is the oposite.

anywhere that's cold and in the middle of nowhere

i don't like the look of commieblocks but i would rather live in them than on a farm or in suburbia. i think most people would agree considering that this is an urban enthuisiast forum.

Actually those housing blocks are quite pleasant I'm sure. If you don't want to live there, that's fine. I'll gladly take your flat and enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the world. Considering Hong Kong has the highest GDP per capita in Asia and the world's second longest life expectancy, and is amongst the top ranked OECD countries in education.... this certainly isn't depicted in those pictures. These pictures depict tenements which probably cost more than the house many of you live in. They are not even close to a slum... rather they show images from one of the world's true skyscraper cities where a highrise building is not just a showcase item but an facet of daily life. Inside is totally better than outside. Also compared to the sprawling single house suburbs these tenements offer much better amenities such as joined ground level retail, parks and excellent transit connections. How would you know if it would be a horrible place to live in by looking at pictures?

This has been posted a few times... and those photos are photoshopped and cropped to maximize the look of density.

Would you say that it's the worst place to live in... if you knew that within the same city there exists pristine nature where you can regularly see scenes like this?

Those pics at the start are cool. I'd love to live there, and have that view from my balcony. I hope they'd be better than most apartments in HK though, I'd want more than a room with a toilet, and nothing else. Throw in a kitchen and a separate bedroom, then I'd love it.

I recognize the first batch of photos. They've been discussed in these forums before and the conclusion is a lot of them are Photoshopped and are not real.
