Chungking Mansions

The Chungking Mansions are considered by many to be the closest thing in Hong Kong today to the Kowloon Walled City. While they are a far cry from the density of the Walled City, the bustling interior corridors have a similarly seedy reputation with Hong Kongers.


The Southern District of Hong Kong island is now easily reachable with the newly opened South Island MTR line. Visit Aberdeen in the evening and try the fish ball soup served directly from one of the fishing boats returning to the harbour for the night with their catch.

The Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden are located in Kowloon and are open to the public. The Maitreya Hall uses traditional Chinese buidling techniques and was constructed without the use of any nails.

This model of the Kowloon Walled City sits in the middle of the Kowloon Walled City Park. Nothing remains of the Kowloon Walled City aside from the Yamen and some traces of building foundations. The rest of the site is a green park that is considerably less damaging to surrounding property values.

The Bird Market not only offers birds for sale as pets, but is also a gathering place for people to bring their own birds. This is an especially popular hobby among elderly men in Hong Kong.

Street food on Temple Street is not your healthiest option but the barbecued skewers are a good snack. Pictured here is a selection of sliced Chinese sausage and dumplings containing crab or sea urchin.
