This is a list of some of the more amusing names of streets in Hong Kong.
The names are real, but the explanations are highly dubious. I've managed to collect the best of the lot, though I have left out the ones that sounded really dirty. And don't ask; you'll just have to use your imagination.
The place to find fine backsides.
The place where men go to get away from their nagging wives or girl friends. Or both.
Named for that famous singing duo from the 50s, the Cleverly Brothers.
One-way only. Watch that last 90 degree turn.
Some places in Asia use the word comfort to identify the washroom. Bring an umbrella.
Hadn't been ironed properly after the asphalt was laid.
Where all the canned ham in the world is packaged.
Very unfriendly. Name posted as a warning to foreign devils.
Noisiest spot in Hong Kong.
Mostly populated by wayward Rastafarians.
A place to avoid at all costs.
Bring rubber boots.
Where the air is so dirty, you'll cough up at least one.
Where you end up when you can't pay your gambling debts.
Home to Chinese Opera stars.
Popular and heavily travelled. Soon to be upgraded to Narcissus Highway.
Home to Hong Kong's former tycoons.
Filled with recovering smack-heads that'll roll you for loose change so they can get their government-supplied $2 methadone shot.
Once a vast and notorious black spot, filled with unlicensed cooked-food hawkers.
Site of many triad humiliations. As punishment for transgressions, offenders were made to lick the road clean.
Like Lovers Lane, but for the especially lonely.
Only used by employees of the Social Welfare Department. Avoided by everyone else.
The cleanest street in Hong Kong. Maybe in Asia.
The Bermuda Triangle of Hong Kong. Many lost tourists, upon asking a local where they Hell they were, have heard this in reply.
