This is a must-see. It is quite a walk from the bus stop, but it is well worth the effort. This place is full of history, from ancient China to the last few decades of the 20th century. I had only known it as a place of vices and the darker sides of HK society. (You can read a bit... More

With it's tranquilly spacious gardens, ponds and pagodas it's hard to imagine how around thirty years ago this area was occupied by a caged city that was home to around 35,000 people! The exhibits throughout the park however do well to remind you of how the city came about and what it was like to live there especially the displays... More

If you get a chance this park is well worth a look it about 20min walk from Lok Fu station but well worth it. Lovely gardens with in the old walled city. Nice for a quiet walk, as well as see the garden design.

What an experience. The park is this semi-spacious oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle that defines Hong Kong. This environment is starkly ironic to its previous existence as the densely populated pit of crime and debauchery that made it famous. The park actually delves beyond this dark period of Kowloon, right back to before British colonisation. In... More

Kowloon Walled City Park is definitely worth a visit when in Hong Kong, because it is a place of peace and serenity in the myriad of neon lights and crowded streets. It is a beautiful park for both its plants and flowers, but also for the beautiful old architecture and style of the buildings there. The park offers a good... More

This park is just walking distance from Marco Polo Hongkong and we grabbed the chance to see what is in it. It's a beautiful place to relax. Flowers everywhere to one's delight and most of all free wifi.!

This park provides a great getaway from the bustle of city life that is Hong Kong. The park is very easy to find and is well sign posted from the MTR (Lok Fu). The park is very quiet and there is a good amount of information for visitors to read. This provides a good overview about the history of the... More

After 4 years in HK, I finally made the effort to visit this park with friends visiting from out of town. It is not a well known part of HK history but a super interesting era/place in this city, but Kowloon Walled City was known as the world's most densely populated area packed with criminal activity, brothels, prostitution, unlicensed dentist/doctors,...
