Kwun Tong District is situated in Kowloon just across the water from the better-known Hong Kong Island. A highly-developed area of Hong Kong, it is home to rows upon rows of residential towers and factories, where you can find plenty to do, ranging from a spot of shopping to a walk alongside the ocean. If you love all things urban, then you’re sure to enjoy Kwun Tong District’s industrial vibe as one of the powerhouses of Hong Kong.
