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,...

I bought the book "City of Darkness" by I. Lambot and G. Girard a few years ago, an absolutely fascinating account of life in Kowloon Walled City before it was taken down in 1993. This was probably one of the most densely populated areas on earth, and neither under Chinese nor British control..... When you enter Kowloon Walled City Park,... More

While not a significant attraction if you have some time to spare this attraction is worth a visit. It is quite interesting the changes that this area has gone through and a credit to the authorities how they have returned this area to its former glory. It feels not many tourists visit here and can be found not far from... More

This is a great visit away from busy, modern Hong Kong. The scale model at the entrance shows the what the city previously looked like. Various exhibits guide you through the history of the city and the development of the Park. I've been several times and enjoy each visit.

This is just one of the not best known historical sites in Hong Kong for foreign visitors (and forgotten historical sites for local people). It used to be an isolated and highly complicated zone notorious for the unlicensed dental clinics, drug addicts and residents living in very crammed apartments before 1992. The zone used to be known as a largely... More

This can be enjoyed as a family not only is there the beautiful grounds including waterfalls, lakes and history of the Old Walled Park, but adjoining and included in this park there is a cycleway in the figure of eight, where children and adults alike are able either to take their own cycles or they can be hired. There are... More

Every time I come to Hong Kong, I find a few places to see that I have never seen before. This trip included the Kowloon Walled City Park. While it may not be worth a special trip, it is relatively close to the Nan Lian and the Chi Lin Gardens. It takes about an hour to walk through the park.... More

We visited the park because we were very interested in the history of its grounds. You can reach this park by taking the MTR by getting off at Wong Tai Sin on the Kwun Tong line and walking approximately 20 minutes along a relatively straight road (google maps was a fantastic help). This way you get to experience walking though... More
