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. Kowloon Walled City Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hong Kong Edition.

Kowloon Walled City Park Reviews
Taman ini benar-benar spektakuler karena terletak di tengah-tengah Kowloon yang identik dengan gedung pencakar langit yang menjulang tinggi. Selain itu taman ini juga gratis, sehingga wisatawan tidak ... more »The park is truly spectacular as it is located in the middle of Kowloon which is synonymous with towering skyscrapers. In addition, the park is free, so tourists do not have to spend the pocket to get here. In it there are many traditional Chinese architecture in the past and very rich in Chinese culture within the park.
遊覽九龍城區後，我決定參觀這個公園，親眼看看它是什麼東西。顯然，這裡曾經是一個九龍城牆城市 - 有大約5萬居民。這個地方不屬於英國或中國的管轄範圍內。但這個地方已有1000多年的歷史（自宋朝以來）。現在，所看到的公園裡，有一個大型江南風格的花園（真的浪費錢來建造它，因為香港過去是一個英國殖民地）。還有看到的舊城牆門和衙門的遺物。在衙門裡面，只有幾張照片和指示牌描述城牆城市的生活。坦率地說，我認為這... more »After visiting the city of Kowloon, I decided to take a look at the park and see what it was. Obviously, it used to be a nine-city wall city-with about 5 residents. This place does not belong within the jurisdictional of British or Chinese control. But this place has a history of more than more than 1000 years (since the Song Dynasty). Now, seen in the park, there is a large Jiangnan style garden (really wasted money to build it, because Hong Kong has been a British colony). And see the legacy of the old city walls and the nga doors. In the NGA door, there are only a few photos and signs describing the life of the city walls. Frankly, I think it's the only place worth seeing. There's a bronze model of a city wall city in the park-I think it's worth taking pictures here. So humiliating! No residents of the daily necessities, no residents of the oral history, no establishment of a city Wall city life Museum, on the contrary in Doha, there is an Ipswich museum, showing the daily necessities of the inhabitants of the dry valley, oral history and their glorious past. These residents were moved to Qiantang because they wanted to build a foundry. In the same way, the city wall city residents to move the Qiantang, is to build a rotten Jiangnan branch garden!
It is a great park that has lots of greenery and interesting historical exhibitions of the Walled City. There are several exhibitions that showcase the lives of the residents as well as the living conditions. Going to this park really gave me insight and allowed me to understand more about the Walled City.
