From China, Without Love - 23 Mar 2015
While some Hong Kong residents accuse mainland tourists of pushing up prices and clogging already crowded streets, resentment also rides high on the other side of the border.

A Hong Kong policeman (top, R) asks mainland Chinese visitors to unblock a pavement outside Hong Kong's Sheung Shui train station with boxes of instant noodles and packages of diapers to be parallel imported into Shenzhen for resale August 23, 2012. China has agreed to put off a controversial scheme to allow millions more visitors into Hong Kong amid growing public concerns that the tiny city's infrastructure is unable to cope with fresh waves of Chinese tourists, its leader said on Friday.

ATTENTION EDITORS - IMAGE 11 OF 22 OF PICTURE PACKAGE '7 BILLION, 7 STORIES - OVERCROWDED IN HONG KONG. SEARCH 'MONG KOK' FOR ALL IMAGES - A mainland Chinese tourist rests outside a cosmetic store in Mong Kok district in Hong Kong, October 4, 2011. Mong Kok has the highest population density in the world, with 130,000 in one square kilometre. The world's population will reach seven billion on 31 October 2011, according to projections by the United Nations, which says this global milestone presents both an opportunity and a challenge for the planet. While more people are living longer and healthier lives, says the U.N., gaps between rich and poor are widening and more people than ever are vulnerable to food insecurity and water shortages.

Mainland Chinese tourists rest in Times Square shopping centre in Hong Kong February 3, 2012. As Hong Kong's outgoing leader Donald Tsang looks ahead to retirement, an unusually toxic public debate over the burden placed by a flood of mainland Chinese visitors has struck at the heart of Hong Kong's often rocky transition from British colony to Chinese special administrative region that began in 1997.

Hundreds of protesters joined a rally organized by an anti-mainland group in Causeway Bay, mocking and dissuading mainland Chinese shoppers from buying imported daily essentials in Hong Kong. The protesters claim that prices of imported daily essentials have gone up and supply is limited, according to local media. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS BUSINESS CIVIL UNREST TRAVEL)

A shopper walks past a mainland Chinese visitor sitting at Canton Road, a shopping hotspot for Chinese tourists, in Hong Kong March 13, 2015. Hong Kong retailers' sales in January were the lowest since 2003 and revenue growth this year will likely be the slowest in at least four years, hit by a drop in visitors from the mainland who have been put off in part by rising hostility among Hong Kongers.
