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 Edition.
