Quaint low-rise buildings with traditional architectural features already made this neighborhood’s neat grid of streets a delight to walk through; now throw in an impressive mountain range in the distance peeking through the buildings, a feast of restaurants serving a range of cuisines, and a historic park with ruins that tell the story of an infamous past. At the foot of the famous Lion Rock, Kowloon City is also a good starting or ending point for the steep hike up Hong Kong’s iconic lion-shaped mountain.
