Please note - This walk is not suitable for children under the age of 15 and is also not suitable for dogs. And also please note that we only take Hong Kong residents on our walks.

Come and explore the sights and sounds of Kowloon City, the district surrounding the old Kai Tak airport. The Walled City was finally demolished in the mid-1990s and the area is now a magnificent public park. Kowloon Walled City Park incorporates some of the nineteenth century Chinese Yamen (magistracy) buildings, as well as newly constructed Soochow-style pavilions and ornamental ponds. Sympathetic seasonal plantings, winding pathways and mounds of dramatically mis-shapen rocks complete the Olde Cathay garden effect. 

We will finish off the walk in the district which, in recent decades has become Hong Kong’s “Thai village” where numerous good-value cafes and shops are scattered around – just the place to stock up with fresh ingredients for your “Thai” kitchen shelf, all at very reasonable prices. 

Details on where to meet for the walk will be sent to you once your booking and payment is received.
