Relax on 37/F for free
For me, weekends in Hong Kong is a nightmare, since everywhere is so crowded and it’s not easy to get a seat in a cafe. Even when you can have one, you can’t enjoy the comfortable environment.
There is an exception, like buying a cuppa or coffee and enjoy it in an office building which offers some free seats, as well as the harbour view so that you can sit for long, and even reading and doing some tasks with a laptop.
However the indoor public space is still rare in Hong Kong. When I visit Japan, I can easily find big and comfortable seats and even sofas. The management of shopping malls don’t mind people sitting for long. Seems that those in Hong Kong just think every customer should buy something before they leave, and can’t imagine that they only take a rest there. I saw some shopping centers put a sign and even flowers to block people from sitting there. If you don’t make people love the place, will they come again and pay money to you one day?
If you want to make money, first of all you should be friendly to your customers. If they are happy, you will be happy too!
Please, start adding seats today in this city!
