    It was the same in Manchester (UK) too. Must say 5, 6 and 7 really can get me going on how things may never ever change for us!! Understandably, a lot of people who’ve seen the ‘other’ side, as you so well described here, crib about life in India!

  2. You had me at the fast internet! 😉
    Hongkong has been on my wishlist for a while now and your post makes me want to go more than ever! Also, that is an awesome pic!

    Even in SL and Bhutan, our immediate neighbours the cars stop at the Zebra crossings to allow pedestrians the right of way. But of course, their population is minuscule compared to ours. With zero infrastructure and exploding vehicular traffic, this is a dream. As for the rest? Some of them are possible, I think, like no cow dung or high wi-fi at airports. Loved this for the theme 🙂

    I’ve not visited Hong Kong but hey, you can visit my Bhaji Gully in Mumbai and not step over cow dung too! But I agree that you can’t do the other six and many others too!

    Experienced the same when I was in London. Wish we get to it in India too.. atleast the honking part.

  6. You can do 2 and 7 in Shillong. But yes, I wonder why we can respect traffic rules abroad but not back home 🙂

    What?? No cow dung? Every self-respecting vegetable market has to have some at least or else how do we get that perfumed breeze? No but seriously, Hong Kong sounds like a great place for a vacation.

    I have friends in Hong Kong, and I’ve heard a lot of good things about the country from them. Hope to visit soon! 🙂 Not stepping on cow dung & escaping the cacophony of people honking on the roads sounds almost blissful!

  9. Point number 5 resonates with me perfectly. In my personal list, I would add open bars that let you drink on the roads, that’s crazy. 😉

    Have been to HK and stayed there for quite sometime. I absolutely loved the weekend treks and night shopping market plus the way infrastructure is organized. Awesome place to bec

  11. I sincerely need to make more trips in my life… this kind of place would really be on my bucket list simply because at the end of the day, I have never experienced such luxury as a grown up!

  12. Lol…the 7 things you described could pretty much be anywhere else in the world other than India 😛 Not that I’ve travelled to many places but I can vouch for Australia, US and Canada 😛

    Seeing a different city, that too not as a tourist is an interesting and fun way to know the place and the culture. Enjoyed reading your insights.

    Honking! Yes I could do without that please. My city Kochi is far better. I had been to Coimbatore and Oh my! People have one hand on the horn forever. The streets ring with horns and nullifies the whole purpose of it!

  15. I haven’t visited HK but read several features into the life and pictures of apartments remind me of Mumbai. I love big cities with a soul. Last Sunday only, I was telling someone that I wouldn’t mind working there for a year at least.

    I think it is going to take ages to bring all these in India. 🙂

  17. Shilpa Garg says:

    Interesting. I think all these will take ages to come to India. And 7th probably never in our lifetime.

  18. Point number 2 is unimaginable in India, a vegetable market without cow dung. We are so used to the music of honking that I want to know how could you even enjoy honk free roads? Didn’t you miss the music? 😀 ;P Not running for life while crossing roads and perfect walking pavements, I miss that in India.
