Kowloon Activities

What to Do in Kowloon

Being so built up and densely populated Kowloon is jam-packed with activity options. With a rich history to look back on, museums are a good option and the area boasts several world-class and interactive historical activities for both adults and youngsters.

The list of cinemas matches any metropolis in the world and if you're looking for a patch of green amidst the concrete there are several options for a fun-filled afternoon at one of Kowloon's parks. 


Hong Kong Space Museum

Popular with children and teenagers, this high-tech museum features one of the most advanced planetariums and interactive models in the world, explaining the basics of space exploration. You can even go weightless through a fly wire exhibition and the Hall of Solar Science allows close observation of the sun. The Space Museum also offers a number of other interactive rides including a virtual paraglider and an actual multi-axis chair like the ones used to train astronauts. Fancy a movie? The Space Theatre shows seven movies each day highlighting space travel, the natural world and even sports.

Kowloon Park

Kowloon is primarily an urban and built-up environment so it's odds-on that you and your children will soon find yourself needing a bit of greenery. Kowloon Park, a beautiful green spot in the city, offers a wide selection of free activities for the kids to let off some steam, such as a swimming pool, a games area and an outdoor sculpture park. There are plenty of paths for walking and lots of grassy spots for relaxing and taking things easy a little. The park also offers a lake, ponds, streams and classic Chinese gardens.  

Address: 22 Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Kowloon Walled City Park

One of the original walled cities of the Hong Kong area has been preserved as a city park, complete with wonderful gardens, pavilions, sculptures and plenty of walkways. Although only the Old South Gate remains from the fabled Walled City, you can get a sense of these first settlers and their enclosed fortresses. Nowadays the Walled City Park is a welcome change from the once squalid neighbourhood. The design of the park is based on the Jiangnan garden style of the early Qing Dynasty. It is divided into eight landscape features, with the Yamen, a three-hall structure fully restored in its Qing Dynasty appearance at its centre. 

Hong Kong Museum of History

At the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui, The Hong Kong Story is a real must see, ideal for those who want to get a good grasp on Hong Kong's vibrant past in an engaging and interactive way. The exhibition, which is both entertaining and educational, starts the story millions of years ago and finishes up in 1997 with the reunification of Hong Kong with China. Allow at least two hours for your visit but if you would like to go the whole hog and enjoy the 53 multimedia programmes featured, including theatre shows and interactive booths, count on three to four hours. Take Exit B2 at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station.
