The name Kowloon stands for 9 dragons: 8 peaks or mountains that are overlooking Kowloon and the emperor. The city of Kowloon is small in size, but it is one of the most populated in the world when it comes to per capita. People will be amazed at the landscape, the ocean and the skyline. Symphony Of Lights is a light show that takes place on different buildings of Kowloon and people can listen to the story that accompanies the show. The show has been awarded by Guinness World records and is a tribute to the beauty and the innovation of the Victoria Harbour. Shek Mei Mip State is one of the buildings that showcases the style of living during the early 50s and the late 60s. Most of the buildings around this State are still on the same condition as they were in the last century and some are still uninhabited. A visit to Kowloon would be incomplete without visiting the Temple Street. This street has many different street vendors, which sell everything from souvenirs to food.
Ha Kowloon is one of the four parts that makes the Hong Kong territory these days. The tip of the peninsula, which faces Hong Kong island, is probably the best known part of Kowloon. It is one big melting pot of streets crawling with shops and tourists, covered up under a spell of neon at night. In this sense, the 'nine dragons' beats the touristy tiger of the neighbouring Hong Kong island!
