Kowloon Walled City Park, Hong Kong

(4.2/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Visit the garrison that became known for crime and debauchery at Kowloon Walled City Park. The attraction occupies the site of the former Kowloon Walled City, a unique peninsula garrison that remained under China's jurisdiction until Hong Kong was ceded to Britain. In 1899 Chinese troops were forced to vacate, leaving the garrison a lawless enclave that became a safe haven for criminals, prostitutes, gangs, and drugs lords hidden in a network of dark alleyways. Eventually, the 30,000 residents were relocated and the grounds reclaimed for a park. A model of the slum's illegally constructed network of buildings can be seen at the park today, surrounded by reclaimed natural beauty amid a peaceful atmosphere.

  • Very nice Park on the site of the snesjonnogo quarter of Kowloon Walled City. Many beautiful plants, pond bridges. Photogenic place! Before visiting the advise to read the story of this quarter, very impressive!

  • This is a place that we didn't expect to see in Hong Kong as it was like a hidden germ of its own. Parks and the various building and historical information were really an interesting thing to see and...  more »

  • The park standing where the walled city was is a beautiful, well maintained Chinese garden. Unfortunately there is little history of the walled city period, particularly when it developed its notorious image. Although the park is pretty I felt a little disappointed there wasn't more than a few photographs from around 1910 of how the place used to be. If you're purely interested in the modern walled city prior to its demolition this ISN'T worth a visit.
  • A MUST visit place in Hong Kong! I went there with my family last week. What a extremely hot day! We were playing the Pokemon Go and walking under the sun. The sun was baking me, as I felt my skin was burning. Certainly I have to say the view of there was awesome! Brightly sunshine, greenly trees and plants, antique decorations and a historical remains of Kowloon Walled City. I'd always love to know more about my city even though I'm a local. Finally I spent a half day to stroll around this fantastic place.
  • Nice park with traditional Chinese architecture. A bit remote but worth travelling to by us (from e.g. Prince Edward station)
  • It has nice architecture. Represents history of the place. Had beautiful chinese new year animal statues too!
  • This park is so quiet,so peacefull... and it's about ancient hong kong,so very interesting.
