Bamboo bar – Tiger Beer's Labor Day weekend pop-up bar rewards those who climb one of its two mock scaffolding set-ups with free beer.
Is it authentic? – The two structures are 1.7 meters and 3.1 meters in height. Master Hong Kong scaffolder Ping-tak Ho said the Tiger facsimile is a gimmick that doesn't compare to the real thing.
Heart-stopping heights – Bamboo scaffolders, perched precariously on bits of bamboo suspended in mid-air while attached to a small harness, are a common sight on Hong Kong's streets.
Bamboo latticework – The poles are joined together with simple knots and nylon strips.
The biggest challenge – Neon lights and signs hanging over streets are among the hardest places to scaffold, says Ho.
Bamboo spidermen – Workers need their hands to be free during the bamboo building process, so they must learn to straddle the poles firmly.
Salary – A master scaffolder earns around 1,700 HKD (about $220) a day.
Hours – A scaffolder works an average of six to eight hours a day.
Male-dominated, with exceptions – There are women working in this industry, but not many, Ho tells CNN.
Bamboo riding – A technique known as "riding the bamboo" involves keeping an ankle wrapped around the pole at all times, allowing workers to keep their hands free while remaining secure.
Training – The job requires several years of training. Hong Kong even has a bamboo scaffolding school, run by the city's Construction Industry Council.
Keeping it in the family – Ho, pictured, has worked in the field for two decades, inheriting the trade from his grandfather and father.
