Kowloon

Sandwiched between Hong Kong Island and the New Territories that join Hong Kong to mainland China sits Kowloon. Meaning ‘nine dragons’ in Cantonese, Kowloon got its name from the peninsula’s eight mountains and the emperor who is said to have counted them. Throughout its history, the area managed to skirt some of the British influence that can still be seen on Hong Kong Island, making it slightly cheaper and a bit more rough around the edges than it’s neighbor across the harbor. Today, more than two million people call Kowloon home, making it one of the most densely populated regions on earth. It is here that you’ll find some of the city’s best shopping, dining, museums and attractions.
