Jordan is an area in the Yau Tsim Mong District of Hong Kong. The unofficial area is named after a road of the same name. It is one of the places, famous for its night life, in Hong Kong.

Since there are quite a lot of old buildings in Jordan, neon-light signages can attract the attention of passers-by. It results in a world of different neon-light signages. Particularly, at night, it becomes one of the attractions for tourists. The signages are mainly made by restaurant, karaoke, night club, hotel, sauna, pharmacy, money exchange, and brandnames like watch and Chinese herbs. It becomes an important part of Hong Kong culture.




Neon lighting consists of brightly glowing, electrified glass tubes or bulbs that contain rarefied neon or other gases. A neon tube light is a sealed glass tube with a metal electrode at each end, filled with one of a number of gases at low pressure. A high potential of several thousand volts applied to the electrodes ionizes the gas in the tube, causing it to emit colored light by fluorescence. The color of the light depends on the gas in the tube. Neon lights were named for neon, a noble gas which gives off a popular orange light. Neon tubes can be fabricated in curving artistic shapes, to form letters or pictures. They are mainly used to make dramatic, multicolored glowing signage for advertising, called neon signs, which were popular from the 1920s to the 1950s.
