Kennedy Town is Hong Kong’s new hipster hood, with craft beer cafés and trendy restaurants at the quaint quayside enjoying full sea view and a fresh breeze. But it wasn’t always like that. Locals call it Sai Wan – Western Circuit – and for years this remote neighbourhood at the end of the tramline was the ‘backyard’ of the island. Here you’d find slaughterhouses, factories, wholesale markets, squatter villages, incinerators and even a mortuary. The early years have shaped K-Town’s community into one of the city’s most resilient and vibrant, forming a neighbourhood with a unique spirit.
