This railway that runs between Tsim Sha Tsui East in Kowloon and what used to be called Canton (now Guangzhou) is still referred to as "the KCR" (Kowloon-Canton Railway) by locals, even though since 2007 it has been operated by MTR, owners of the metro system in Hong Kong. In my opinion, the Hong Kong public transit system is the best in the world. It's extensive, efficient, safe, clean and relatively inexpensive. Who can beat all that?
On our last visit to Hong Kong, we stayed with friends who live - by Hong Kong standards - out in the boonies; that is, far from the din of heavy traffic and claustrophobic skyscrapers. To get to their house, we must get off the main road and cross this footbridge.

I readily concede that aesthetically there is nothing in these photos to marvel about, but what IS remarkable is how even in a remote place like this the footbridge is clean (note: NO graffiti) and safe, with reflector mirrors to alert pedestrians and bikers to each other and plenty of light for nighttime security.
