There are a lot of rest places in Hong Kong - basically urban parks/gardens with lots of benches. And they have so many rules. In fact, there are so many signs with lists of things you can't do in Hong Kong in general. I mean, sure, after a year in Korea with very little written English, any amount of English on signs would be noticable but HK has tons and tons. Elevators with rules against unaccompanied children even.
Anyway, one thing I've noticed about the rest areas is that they are generally only full of men. I sat in one to have a drink and I was the only female there. Usually the guys are smoking (totally against the rules) or playing a Chinese version of chess.
