Don’t Block The Left Side
Be familiar with the walking etiquette to stand on the right and walk on the left. This common rule is applicable to sidewalks and even more so to moving walkways and escalators. If you’re not in a hurry and prefer to just stand, remember to stay on the right side and let people pass you on the left. Again, Hong Kongese are in a rush to get to their place of business or office, and they will get annoyed with you if you block the left side of walkways and escalators, preventing them to hurry past you. Yes, it’s an obvious sign you’re a tourist when you stand in the way, but know and apply travel etiquette, and walk or stand on the right side. Don’t be difficult or rude just because you are a tourist. Avoid making it awkward, uncomfortable, or frustrating for everyone by following this simple rule and letting people get to their destinations sooner. Show respect, courtesy, and consideration by standing or walking on the right side.
