Kowloon City
Kowloon City . Gritty local charm

Kowloon City, its square grid and gritty character defined by the old Kai Tak Airport and the legendary Walled City, was once the world’s densest populated block until the government bulldozed the urban jumble and turned it into a nicely landscaped park. This unpretentious neighbourhood is well known for the many family run eateries from Southern Thailand to Northern China, but few people know the fascinating history behind these places. Kowloon City has surprises hidden around every street corner, whether it’s 3am or 3pm.
