Kowloon Walled City Park
Kowloon Walled City Park Review
Arguably Hong Kong's most beautiful park, designed in Qing-dynasty style, is near the old Kai Tak Airport, between Tung Tau Tsuen and Tung Tsing roads. The park opened in 1995, and in previous centuries was a walled military site, then a notorious slum. Today the major attraction is the Yamen, an example of southern Chinese architecture of the 19th century, and is the only remaining structure from the original Walled City. There are also a number of traditional gardens on the grounds, and eight walks showcasing different flora, as well as free 45-minute guided tours. Hong Kong's Thai community is based in the streets south of the park, and there are countless hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurants. Bus 113 stops nearby, or take the MTR to Kowloon Tong and take a cab.
