Nearby Attractions

Being one of the most historic parts of the city, with a history going back over 500 years, there are many interesting features to see for the visitors. As one of the newly redeveloped parts of the city it also boasts modern facilities and attractions that can cater to the most demanding tourist.

Here are a few highlights in and around the area.

Walled City Park

The centre piece of the district is of course the green traditional Chinese style park which occuppies the area once known as the Kowlopn Walled City, and which is now a magnet for both local and overseas visitors who want to experience this piece of quite garden in the midist of the busy city.  Combining historical relics that were discovered when the illeagle structures that made the area infamous were demolished in the 1980s together with traditional Chinese ponds, trees, archways and paths.

A popular place for photographers, whether they be wanting to use it as a backdrop for their model, or just to take advantage of this rare chance to capture traditional garden features on film.

Look out for a model of the Walled City as it was just prior to demolition, as well as the Lung Nam Pavilion, and in particular The Yamen, the only original building from 1847.  Inside you will find a small display of artifacts such as stone tablets, and photographs of the Walled City from various periods.
