Exhibition craziness in Wanchai- Hong Kong Book Fair & Sports and Leisure Fair

Wan Chai MTR station has been super crowded since last Thursday. It’s the annual Hong Kong Book Fair and Sports & Leisure Fair. It feels like all of Hong Kong’s residents decided to come. 


Crazy crowded isn’t it. Literally walking shoulder to shoulder, the bridge must be at almost maximum loading. It was very slow moving, there was no way to overtake people and there were choke points where people were trying to “change lanes” to get to the other side of the foot bridge (separated by steel barricades) or decide which exit to take.


With the typhoon gone, it was a hot, steamy afternoon. I guess the organisers are making up for lost time today. 


Most people going to the book fair and Sports Leisure Fair were advised to turn off here and walk through those Greek key mazes to the convention centre. 


If you made it to Immigration Tower, police are in full force and everyone has to follow the lines and signs.

No, no I didn’t go. I was just running an errand at Immigration Tower.
