Recommended Coworking Spaces in Kowloon
Confusing as it is, Kowloon is quite often spelt as Kauloong or Kawloong. Kowloon is on a peninsular bordered by the Lei Yue Mun strait in the east, the Mei Foo Sun Chuen and Stonecutter's Island in the west, with Lion Rock to the North and in the south, Victoria Harbor. Sitting in the northern part of Hong Kong, it is a separate city acquired by Britain in 1860 and reclaimed by China in 1997. Known as a shopping, entertainment and arts enclave juxtaposed with traditional markets offering anything from goldfish to jade. The name in Cantonese means "nine dragons" referring to the 8 mountains overlooking the city, the most famous of which is Lion Rock, with the 9th dragon including the emperor that counted them. One of the most densely populated cities in the world, the main tourist mecca is to be found on the tip of the peninsula known as Tsim Sha Tsui.
The must do thing on any visitor's list to Kowloon has to be a ride on a ferry traversing the harbor from Central or Wan Chai piers. At night it is a magical fairyland of twinkling lights and bursting fireworks from the tops of skyscrapers and during the day, a panoramic picture of bustling life on the waterfront. You can take a promenade along the Kowloon Waterfront past the historic clock tower and gawk at capitalism gone mad with masses of glass buildings reaching for the sky and mammoth cruise ships parked at the Ocean Terminal in the middle of the city. You can take a meander down Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's walk of fame, the Avenue of the Stars, where many local film stars have put their paws into the wet concrete. You should take time out to visit the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, a Taoist temple where the locals ask for divine guidance. Take a walk through the Shek Kip Mei Estate, one of the last remaining places where you will get an insight into the living conditions of the 1950s and the 1960s. There are plenty of museums to keep the museum buffs, happy especially the Hong Kong Space Museum with a planetarium and the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum with artifacts from the Eastern Han dynasty (AD25-220). You can shop ad nauseam either in generic stores or vibrant market places, visit the famous graffiti wall or take a walk in Kowloon Park.
If you are so inclined, the unofficial red-light district is in Portland Street, Mong Kok, where you will find karaoke bars, hostess bars, brothels and the odd restaurant if you get hungry for a noodle or two.
