Is HK village life really that desolate as described in this forum?
I have been to taiwan and there are plenty of villages in the suburbia area.
However, those taiwanese villages are pretty modern. In fact, they can be considered to be self-contained mini suburbs. Although they do not have those mega-malls, they have at least mini grocery shops, quite a few clean eateries and internet cafes.
Taiwanese villages are nothing like those mainland villages found in rural china.
Now those mainland villages are real villages. They have no shops of any kind and each family maintains their own vegetable plots and coops of chickens. To make things worse, they are stranded in the middle of nowhere. Well, mainland China is pretty big.
My question is.. are HK villages anything like those taiwanese villages? Or are they as primitive/rural as those mainland villages?
