Kowloon Walled City Park 九龍寨城公園

In Hong Kong this modern city, we can find one place producing a green and peaceful environment studded with Chinese pavilions and ponds. This is The Kowloon Walled City Park. It sits on the site of the former Kowloon Walled City. Many historic relics are well preserved in the Park and they evoke your's memories of the past. The Park is laid out in the Jiangnan garden style of the early Qing Dynasty. In my opinion, you must visit this attraction when you come to Hong Kong!
