One of the oldest, continuously occupied sites in Hong Kong (it began as a Chinese Imperial government outpost sometime in the 15th century), this fortress is located on the northeast part of the Kowloon Peninsula. After a long and troubled history, the area became an unregulated squatter's town. In 1987, however, the slum was cleared and the site has been recreated as a historical park with a variety of historically accurate traditional Chinese buildings and restored remnants of the original fortifications and gates. Easy to get to by public transportation or taxi, the large and beautiful park is a fun and relaxing place to stroll around while learning about the history of the Walled City through outdoor displays and indoor exhibition areas. Guided tours are also available.
