With more than 18,000 taxis serving our city, every Hong Konger will be familiar with the speedy red wagons that take us to and fro, day and night, drunk or sober. For most however, interest in the person behind the wheel, and indeed the taxi itself, evaporates as soon as we reach our destination.

But one man, Ed Jones
of the Agence France-Presse, has proved himself more curious than most. He put together this beautifully shot video documenting a five-hour night shift with taxi driver Alan Leung and the sights he comes across as his work takes him to every nook and cranny of the city.
Trippy, captivating and altogether mesmerizing, Ed’s video succeeds in making Leung’s trade look far more appealing than a desk job!
