      Mirador Mansions
    by Willettsworld

Chungking Mansions, built in 1961, has been synonymous in Hong Kong for cheap accommodation, shops and curry restaurants for years. It's a 17-storey, five block, crumbling, ugly heap of a building that certainly won't win any awards for being aesthetically pleasing on the eye. But somehow it's because of all this that it endears you to visit and take a look to see just what it's like (I'll let you draw your own conclusions if you do decide to visit). It sits on near the southern end of the long Nathan Road in Kowloon, right in the heart of where everything happens in the area. Mirador Mansions, just along the road, is of a similar standard.
