In And Around Kowloon Walled City Park
Posted on 31 October 2017
Our Brand Ambassador, Naomi shares her guide to Kowloon.
Take a tour through Kowloon’s Walled City Park, and reminisce on the fascinating tales of Hong Kong’s past. Being by far one of the city’s oldest and most hidden spots (not many locals have even been here) never would you imagine Hong Kong to be so different to its stereotypical skyscraper persona. From scenic strolls, to enchanting circle doors this park is the depiction of Fa Mulan’s backyard.
The Kowloon City neighbourhood has a lot to offer from history, good food and shopping to karaoke and late-night dancing.
The founding bakery from within the Walled City still operates nearby. Come try anything from pineapple buns to mouth-watering mango mochi, (the best) you’ll want to run back for seconds!
Soya milk is huge in Hong Kong, and the locals sure know how to make it fresh! Unsweetened, and super tasty as a drink or as a soy pudding.
A trip to Kowloon City is not complete without a Thai meal. This no-frills stall in the cooked food centre has a wide selection of Thai favourites.
