Kowloon City
Before the new International Airport was opened in Lantau Island in 1998, the former Kai Tak Aiport was just next to Kowloon City. Although the airport moved, and the buildings here are old and stale, Kowloon City is still renowned for the variety of restaurants, such as Thai, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Western, Desserts, Chinese Chiu Chow or Shanghainese cuisine!

Hong Kong Travel Info:
  • Transportation: From Tsim Sha Tsui's Star Ferry Bus Terminal, take bus No.1A or 5, get off near Kai Tak Airport or Regal Oriental Hotel.

Kowloon Walled City Park
To the north of Kowloon City is the Kowloon Walled City Park. This place was a military station of Qing Dynasty hundreds of years ago. At a later stage, due to historical events such as the occupation by British Army, confrontation between China and Britain or the Japanese occupation, the Walled City became a place that is not governed by the British nor the Chinese.

As a result, crime flourished, population rose as asylum seekers from China arrived in mass numbers, environmental and sanitary conditions deteriorated. However, as the Sino-British Joint Declaration was signed in 1984, the problem was solved and in 1987 the Hong Kong Government announced a plan to replace the the Walled City with a park. In 1993, the Walled City was demolished and the park was opened in 1995.

The park has preserved the original Walled City structures and relics, along with the Qing Dynasty's garden design.
