Kowloon Walled City Park, Hong Kong
(4.2/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • 九龍城寨公園非常美麗,以園林建築建成,有小橋流水,亭台樓閣,古雅非常。公園還保留了九龍城寨的遺址,還有一個小小的博物館,讓人了解當時九龍城寨的故事,適合喜歡歷史和自然景觀的人。 
  • 一般香港的公園多是西式設計,只有這個公園是中式的。公園很大,也有不少風景區和遊憩區,很適合拍照。 不過交通不是很方便,但也因為這樣,這裡比較安靜和清閒。

  • 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.
