Feb 25th 2007 2:37PM My family and I traveled to Hong Kong for a two-week trip in December, our first trip to Asia. We found shopkeepers and restaurant personnel to be extremely polite and friendly. We decided that people on the street don't mean to be unfriendly, but it is so crowded everywhere that one must keep moving all the time, especially if one is trying to keep up with others in a group. Additionally, I can understand why people were reluctant to help someone pick up papers, as people are cautioned that pickpockets use diversions such as that to catch people off guard.
