Suspended above us with intricate patterns and flamboyant colours, the neon signs of Hong Kong
easily guide us to local businesses, Chinese restaurants, bars, and department stores. Apart from
marketing and advertising, these neon signs actually convey much more - and mean much more to

those who view the signs as a part of their home.
