Chungking Mansion: Budget Heaven or Third Layer of Hell?

 As the birthplace of Chinese and martial arts cinema, with cloud-scraping apartment rises and specialty streets selling rare and prosperous herbal concoctions, Hong Kong city is a city unlike like any other.

I never suspected it would be one of those few countries that would floor me.

What was so jaw-dropping about it?
