Queuing for Trains, Airplanes, Gondolas… or Really Anything Else in Life

Post by Nick Chu

A video depicting a chaotic “queuing” scene has gone viral today after a tourist filmed herself waiting in line at a Korean airport. In turn, this has sparked some intensely emotional and comical debates on Reddit and the rest of the interwebs.

To provide a contrast to that thread, the online community immediately started posting photos of queuing culture in other parts of the world — with an emphasis on train queuing etiquette. Here are some of the examples found online:

Japan

Singapore

Thailand

India

Philippines

Houston, USA




Note: To avoid any transit technology wars, some may perceive the above picture as a shot against light rail. It isn’t, rather it is an observation on how some people decide to perceive transit in general in North American cities. 

Note 2: To ensure we don’t spark any meaningless technological debates on the blog, below is another example of train queuing in the USA (plus a picture of passengers lining up for the Ngong Ping 360 in Hong Kong). 


San Jose, USA
