A signal station was established at the site in 1668. In 1810, a fort was built at the far end of the beach adjoining the site. Following the British occupation of the Hong Kong island in 1841, the Kowloon Walled City and the surrounding area became much more important in China's maritime defense. In 1846, the Qing Government commenced the construction of a walled garrison city there. Surrounded by strong stonewalls with six watchtowers and four gates, the Kowloon Walled City, occupying an area of 6.5 acres, was completed in 1847.

    As the old proverb goes: “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”. Although Hong Kong’s Chief Secretary is – as far we know – not Greek she has been rather busy bearing so called gifts. Just before Christmas she announced a previously secretive deal to install a $3.5 billion branch of the national Palace Museum in the West Kowloon Cultural District. Ten days later, came the announcement of an agreement to build a 87-hectare Hong Kong Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park at the Lok Ma Chau Loop. With me to talk about these two recent developments are lawmakers, Charles Mok and Holden Chow. 2016 was a tough year for many people around the world and not always so great for planet Earth itself. 2016 saw a record rise in world temperatures and by November sea ice cover at both the north and south p...

Date : 1st February, 2017 Headline : The Housing Authority is expected to put 2,100 Home Ownership Scheme flats in East Kowloon and Mui Wo up for sale next month. Website : http://mytv.tvb.com/tc/cat_news/ed_localnews/pearlnewsat730/294652 he Housing Authority is expected to put 2,100 Home Ownership Scheme flats in East Kowloon and Mui Wo up for sale next month. It’s believed the prices of homes in two Mui Wo projects will be around 5,000 dollars per square foot. Evelina Leung reports. This site here on Choi Hing Road in Ngau Tau Kok is expected to produce 1,400 HOS flats. Meanwhile, two plots of land in Mui Wo on Lantau Island will produce 700 HOS units. The sites are located on Ngan Kwong Wan Road East and Ngan Kwong Wan Road West. The Housing Authority’s Subsidised Housing Committee will hold a meeting in the middle of the month to discuss the prices for the units. Stanley Wong, chairman of the committee, expects the prices for the Mui Wo flats will be set at around 70 percent of the market price in the same area. That means for flates ranging from 300 to 400 square feet, homebuyers are expected to pay around 1.5 to 2 million dollars. That’s around 5,000 dollars per square foot. Residents of Mui Wo can go to Central by ferries, and the voyage takes 35 to 40 minutes by high-spend boats. They can also take a 40-minutes bus ride to the Tung Chung town centre, which is served by the MTR. Some say even through this is a bit far away, at least there are ferries to Central and land transport to Tung Chung. So, this one here thinks the HOS flats in Mui Wo are a good choice for aspiring homeowners. But this one doesn’t feel the same. He refuses to live in Mui Wo because it takes more than an hour to get into the city. Compared with a HOS project on Lantau that went on sale in 2014, property prices have gone up. This size of homes at Tin Lee Court in Tau O ranged from 478 to 485 square feet and were sold for between 640,000 and 890,000 dollars.

The city, a unique urban experiment, housed about 50,000 people in just 300 buildings, which were crammed together into a living space that followed its own set of laws. Governed by the Chinese mafia known as 'the Triads', the city became famous in the 1980s for its brothels, casinos and opium dens. Living conditions were squalid, with cramped and dirty spaces, no direct sunlight, patchy or non-existent electricity, and no garbage collection. Nevertheless, the city's population grew fivefold in just 40 years, from 10,000 after World War II, reaching 50,000 people by 1990. Rent was cheap, with an average of just HKD35 a month (about US$4 today) and no taxes were charged or paid. It was therefore very attractive for doctors and dentists and manufacturers who could practice without licenses, or people who could not afford to live elsewhere. The city's unique political status and anarchic conditions, however, made it an embarrassment for the British government, who after a difficult eviction process, started tearing it down in 1993. The demolition ended in April 1994. A year later, the place was transformed into a Qing Dynasty style garden. This animation recreates the historical process that lead to the creation of this fascinating city, and eventually to its disappearance. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The famous, top quality Hong Kong copies were manufactured here. - In Hong Kong it was illegal to eat cats and dogs but in KWC there were restaurants that specialised. - The city didn't get running water until the 1960's. Even then it was diverted to triad run businesses so most people never got it. - A few of the streets were illuminated by fluorescent lights but most were too dark for me to film. - On upper levels there was a network of staircases and passageways which was so extensive that residents could travel north to south across the city without ever touching the ground. - In 1993 the Walled City was demolished and replaced by a commemorative park.

23/05/2016 News... Kowloon Walled City blighted by overcrowding, poverty and crime... Inside fortress city: Amazing images from the lawless Hong Kong slum which was once home to 30,000 and one of the most densely populated place on earth. Before it was demolished in 1994, Kowloon Walled City was regarded as the most densely populated place on earth About 33,000 people lived in the overcrowded slum in Hong Kong, where crime was accepted as part of daily life The six-acre settlement was essentially lawless due to a territorial dispute between China and British Hong Kong. Life inside Kowloon Walled City, the most densely populated place on earth, was far from easy before the chaotic cluster of interconnected high-rise buildings was demolished 20 years ago. Around 33,000 people lived in the overcrowded Hong Kong slum, which was blighted by poverty, organised crime, including drug dealing, gambling and prostitution, poor sanitation and inadequate services. Populated by families, business owners, drug addicts and gang members, the settlement was essentially lawless due to a territorial dispute between China and British Hong Kong, but both sides agreed in the 1980s to demolish it and replace it with a park. The former Chinese military site became a sprawling urban settlement after Japanese forces retreated during World War II and squatters moved in. Over the following decades it fell under the grip of the Triads, who were eventually forced out in the 1970s, and was notorious for brothels, casinos and opium dens as it lagged behind the rest of Hong Kong, although crime rates dropped in its later years. Before Kowloon Walled City was finally demolished in 1994, photographers Greg Girard and Ian Lambot spent five years capturing jaw-dropping images of daily life within the six-acre site - from children playing on rooftops to heroin addicts shooting up on the street. Kowloon Walled City, in Hong Kong, had more than 300 high-rise apartments and an estimated 33,000 people crammed within the site. Families with young children, who played on top of apartment buildings, lived among gang members and drug addicts in the slum. Food processors freely admitted that they moved into the city to benefit from the low rents and to seek refuge from health inspectors. Given the density of the six-acre site, residents had no immediate access to greenery and had to retreat to rooftops for sunlight. Employee Kwok Tsang Ming ladles a batch of fried fishballs into baskets in a small factory off Kwong Ming Street. Airline passengers had a stunning view of the walled city when the flew into Hong Kong's Kai Tak Airport, which closed in 1998. Ovens used for the roasting of pigs (left) raised temperatures inside the city. At right, a worker carries buckets of eels at a fishball factory. The government spent $2.7billion Hong Kong dollars in compensation and evacuations started in 1991. They were completed in 1992. For More News Subscribe Our Channel..THANK YOU

Full version: https://youtu.be/1uCu5n2K5Zk The original site of the Kowloon Walled City was used by imperial Chinese officials as early as in the 15th century. A signal station was established at the site in 1668. In 1810, a fort was built at the far end of the beach adjoining the site. Following the British occupation of the Hong Kong island in 1841, the Kowloon Walled City and the surrounding area became much more important in China's maritime defense. In 1846, the Qing Government commenced the construction of a walled garrison city there. Surrounded by strong stonewalls with six watchtowers and four gates, the Kowloon Walled City, occupying an area of 6.5 acres, was completed in 1847. The offices of Commodore of the Dapeng Brigade and the Kowloon Assistant Military Inspectorate, commonly known as Yamen, were major buildings in the Walled City. When the British troops took over the Walled City in 1899, the Qing officials and soldiers were expelled. Since then, the Walled City had been deprived of the rule of law and administration. It became a semi-lawless squatter slum. During the Japanese occupation between 1941 and 1945, the walls of the Walled City were demolished by the Japanese troops, with the stones extracted for the extension of the nearby Kai Tak Airfield. The post-war years saw high-rise tenements over the Walled City. Built without government supervision, the living conditions deteriorated as the days went by. The Walled City had literally sunk into a hotbed of vice activities. Finally, the Walled City were brought to an end in 1987 when both governments of China and Hong Kong agreed on the demolition of the Walled City for ere-development into a park. The demolition works of the Walled City were completed in April 1994. During the demolition, some existing buildings, unearthed carved granite plaques, remnants and relics were protected intact.

A rare video, not only faithfully recorded the true face of the Kowloon Walled City, it's narrated by Lo Hoi-pang in Cantonese, and retains many authentic Cantonese vocabularies, some have disappeared in the Guangdong of today's Hong Kong life, and it's very unfortunate. To help you understand this video easier read this info: Lo Hoi-pang is a man from Guangzou. In 1969, shortly after the cultural revolution, he secretly passed into Hong Kong, he later joined TVB and became an actor for a variety of famous shows. This video is narrated by him and this documentary is from the perspective one of Kowloon Walled City's original residents, Uncle Lei (the barber). The older generation of the Guangzhou people have a solid and tough character, which Pang retains. Appearing in the film, there was a wordplay in the name of the dog meat shop, called "three hundred sixty-nine", of course, it's now gone. Why is it called "three hundred sixty-nine"? Because 3 plus 6 equals 9, 9 years in Cantonese with "dog" is a pronunciation, so "three hundred sixty-nine" refers to the word dog.

As the old proverb goes: “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”. Although Hong Kong’s Chief Secretary is – as far we know – not Greek she has been rather busy bearing so called gifts. Just before Christmas she announced a previously secretive deal to install a $3.5 billion branch of the national Palace Museum in the West Kowloon Cultural District. Ten days later, came the announcement of an agreement to build a 87-hectare Hong Kong Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park at the Lok Ma Chau Loop. With me to talk about these two recent developments are lawmakers, Charles Mok and Holden Chow. 2016 was a tough year for many people around the world and not always so great for planet Earth itself. 2016 saw a record rise in world temperatures and by November sea ice cover at both the north and south poles was at record lows. There were surprises and upsets in the US presidential election and the UK referendum on leaving the European Union, a spate of terror attacks around Europe and America, continued conflicts in many countries, and an escalation of the migrant crisis.

It’s been the centre of Chinese life in London since the 1950s. But Chinatown is changing. Shaftesbury Estate, which owns four fifths of Chinatown, says the area needs to modernise by bringing in new restaurants from across East Asia and attract a new generation. But there are fears from the long-established community that the area will lose its Chinese identity. Tarah Welsh reports.

WARNING - DON'T book your travel through Expedia - they are super sketchy! So many people have reported being double or triple-charged by Expedia.com - and Expedia has refused to refund duplicate charges caused by glitches on their site and app. I don't know if travelocity and hotels.com are as sketchy, but they are owned by the same company. I will be trying competitor Priceline in the future. The Kawasaki Warehouse is a huge arcade in Kawasaki Japan (about 30-40 minutes from Tokyo by train). The coolest part of the arcade is a section modeled after Kowloon Walled City, a crowded urban nest in Hong Kong that was demolished in the 1990's. Kowloon inspired the settings of many fictional video games, animes, and movies. The Kowloon section of the arcade houses classic game cabinets such as Darius, Outrun, Street Fighter, and Gauntlet. ウェアハウス 川崎店 • ウェアハウスカワサキテン
