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 Bay – and for years this remote neighbourhood at the end of the tramline was the ‘backyard’ of the island. Here were the city’s slaughterhouses, factories, squatter villages and even a mortuary. The early years have shaped K-Town’s community into one of the city’s most resilient and strong spirited.
