Unless you’re filthy rich, Hong Kong isn’t the city for you (10 Photos) » small-apartments-Hong-Kong-9

These startling images highlight the oppressive living conditions of many Hong Kong families. The urban slums are home to the poor and elderly and homes are sometimes no bigger than the average toilet cubicle.

Rental in the city is around $11.60 per square foot per month which is why people are forced to live in such small spaces.
