Commuting and Culture:
Commuting in Hong Kong can be a challenge due to its dense population and limited public transportation options. The public transportation network is extensive, but can be crowded and slow during peak hours. For those who drive, traffic can be notoriously congested, especially during rush hour. The MTR (Mass Transit Railway) is the most popular form of public transport and is relatively reliable, however, its stations can become extremely crowded during peak times.
The work culture in Hong Kong is fast-paced and highly competitive. People here are highly motivated and ambitious, and often work long hours to achieve their goals. Respect for hierarchy is important, and there is a focus on efficiency and productivity. There is also a strong emphasis on teamwork and collaboration, as well as a commitment to quality.
