Attractions

Kwun Tong Promenade, adjacent to Kwun Tong Bypass, is built on the site of the former Kwun Tong Public Cargo Working Area under the Kai Tak Development.

About one kilometer in length, the waterfront boardwalk in the Promenade provides visitors with not only close-up views of the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and the Runway Park, which are the new landmarks of East Kowloon, but also splendid night-time views of Hong Kong Island East and the panoramas of Victoria Harbour and Lei Yue Mun.

Models of mechanical cranes and waste paper bundles inspired by the paper recycling industry are the artistic attractions of the Promenade to evoke memories of the site as a former cargo handling area.

A mist feature with special lighting and sound effects has been installed in the landscaped area.  At night-time, the lighting along the waterfront tree walk and tower landmarks flashes and changes, interacting with the mists of water droplets emitted from the ground and the kaleidoscopic beams from the uplights along the waterfront boardwalk to create a surreal and delightful atmosphere.

This distinctive red box-shaped mall in east Kowloon is impossible to miss. And it's mega alright, inside there's something for just about every family member – especially the little ones – including a great selection of children's wear, toys, maternity shops, an ice rink and an IMAX theatre.

How can you visit Hong Kong without sampling seafood? The fishing village of Lei Yue Mun is a slice of old Hong Kong alive and well in the modern metropolis. About 150 years ago, this village was dominated by fishing, farming and mining. From the 1960s, it began to gain a reputation as a good spot for alfresco seafood dining. The ordering method is quite unusual: first, you buy seafood from a tank in a market stall, then you take it to one of the nearby restaurants to prepare it for a fee.

Legend has it that Tin Hau, the daughter of a fisherman in China's Fujian Province, had visions that enabled her to predict storms. People, especially fishermen, regarded her as the Queen of Heaven and Goddess of the Sea because she saved people from drowning. Hong Kong was once a fishing village and so there are over 50 Tin Hau Temples in the territory. The one located in Cha Kwo Ling Village was built in Qing Dynasty. The temple was then moved to Cha Kwo Ling Road in 1941, and it was under maintenance and repair in 1947. Local residents are still very respectful to Tin Hau. When you pay a visit to the Tin Hau Temple, don’t miss the two very special painted walls: Green Dragon on the left and White Tiger on the right.
