HONG KONG-HERITAGE-LIFESTYLE-HOUSING

In this picture taken on October 22, 2013 in Hong Kong, visitors queue to visit the renovated Mei Ho House, a public resettlement block built in 1954 and renovated to be turned into a youth hostel. While heritage regularly falls victim to construction in one of the most densely populated cities in the world, the building was preserved as a record of Hong Kong's public housing development. With a museum set up in the hostel itself, visitors are taken through the history of Sham Shui Po, the district where the building has stood for half a century.
