One of the great contributions to the richness of Hong Kong’s urban scene were without doubt the caged balconies that lined the elevations not only of the Walled City, but also of many of the city’s other older tenement buildings. Sadly now but a distant memory, since they were classified as illegal structures in the late 1990s and torn down, these practical and otherwise very necessary additions to life in a tiny apartment were a source of constant delight.

春秧街,不過就是一個尋常的露天市集罷了。偏偏,當叮…叮…叮的聲音響起,途人跟電車司機均默契地你閃我避,早就習以為常。這場面,成就了春秧街不一樣的生活氣息。很多人說,它跟曼谷郊外的美功鐵路市場(Maeklong Railway Market)很相似,只是,春秧街沒有險象環生的驚嚇景象,反而來得優雅多了,電車總是從容不迫,人潮也是悠然自得。人走得越慢,車就走得更慢了。在這個越益稠密的城市,已沒有別的地方能夠享受如此大搖大擺在馬路上散步的感覺了。
