We do expect that people living in the developed countries would apparently live luxurious and comfortable lives, or atleast comfortable housings. You may imagine a tiny trailer house as a rather difficult place to live, but even the thought of these coffin cubicles of Hong Kong will convince you to be thankful for your blessed life.
Everyone needs a roof, even if it is as tiny as a coffin. In the wealthy state of Hong Kong, about 20,000 people live in these distressing conditions. The property is so expensive that people live in flats that are illegally divided into spaces as small as 20 square feet. Slightly bigger from these coffin homes, houses measuring around 120 square feet can cost the inhabitants around $580 in rent and utilities. Some of these inhabitants do not even have the luxury of stretching their legs in their small cubicles.
