Kennedy Town

Home to a strong spirited community
Kennedy Town is Hong Kong’s new hipster hood, with craft beer cafés and trendy restaurants at the quaint quayside. 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.
