"Scaffolding - Chinese Style - it's Bamboo!" Hong Kong Things to Do Tip by easyoar
Hong Kong Things to Do: 2,749 reviews and 5,416 photos
If you don't look too closely, the scaffolding you see in Hong Kong may look identical to what you see back home (I'm assuming you live somewhere where you have metal rods bolted together!).
If you do look closely however you'll see it is pieces of Bamboo that are just tied together. In Hong Kong they like to build tall, and this scaffolding just goes up all the way. I must have seen it going up 20 stories at least. I guess they have to build quick or else it rots, so perhaps its an incentive to get the construction workers to work faster!
