This one from here Just click here (includes photos & videos) - it is really true it is disgusting what you can see everyday in the station & trains there. They normally prefer to take the 1st class of the MTR to Lowu. Without feeling any shyness in the wagon they start packing things (on body) or in bappacks. recently I saw a guy with at least 10 Ipads (unpacked) - storing all parts in different kind of luggage & on his body. “Liberate Sheung Shui Station”: Hong Kong Netizens Act Against Smugglers This entry was posted on September 15, 2012, in Conflicts between Hongkonger and Mainlander, Individual Visit Scheme and tagged 自由行, 水客. Bookmark the permalink. 3 Comments Recently, a netizen posted photos of smugglers of Sheung Shui Station and the issue sparks anger among netizens again. The event page “光復上水站” (Liberate Sheung Shui Station) was later set up to ask other netizens to “have a walk in Sheung Shui Station” on 9.15 and 9.16. Individual Visit Scheme (IVS) Worsens Smuggling According to an essay titled “Sheung Shui has too many IVS tourists that the place becomes unwalkable” from inmediahk.net, The conflict between Sheung Shui residents and Mainlanders and smugglers starts from the moment of getting off a train. In the past, the northbound (to Lo Wu) platform had always been empty. Boarding a train was an easy job. The chance of encountering smugglers, who were mostly housewives earning extra income, was occasional. In recent years, getting off a train is like competing to be the first pilgrim of Wong Tai Sin Temple on the first day of the lunar calendar – there are many people getting off trains and even more people boarding, even during rush hours. By estimation, the former is Sheung Shui residents and the latter is either Mainlanders or smugglers. These days, majority of smugglers are Mainlanders, taking the advantage of multiple entry permit to earn extra income. (*This policy was implemented in April 2009 to make Shenzhen residents more convenient.) Therefore, everyone doesn’t give way. Getting off a train is like a battle. One can’t get off a train if one doesn’t give full effort. In the past, traveling was tranquil. Now, one has to squeeze into the crowded northbound train to Sheung Shui and then shove to get off. Squeezing through the crowd to return home, one finally feels tranquil.
