    Until it was demolished in 1993 Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong (Cantonese called it City of Darkness) was the most densely populated place on Earth. This is a video I took in 1990.

  • The Pulse:Palace Museum & Shenzhen HK Tech Park, 2016 World News in Review

    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...

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

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.

This was filmed on a hot, sunny day. - Numerous small factories and businesses thrived inside the Walled City. 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.

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.

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 often acts as a large gathering place for some of the ethnic minorities in Hong Kong, particularly Indians, Middle Eastern people, Nepalese, Sri Lankans, Bangladeshis, Nigerians, Europeans, Americans, Pakistanis, and many other peoples of the world. The building was completed in 1961, at which time Chinese residents predominated. Now, after more than four decades of use, there are an estimated 4,000 people living in the Mansions. Chungking Mansions is 17 stories tall and consists of 5 blocks, A, B, C, D, and E. There are two elevators in each block, one of which serves even-numbered floors, the other one odd-numbered floors; there is often a queue for this lift. The price of a flat in the Chungking Mansions ranged from HK$1,000,000 to HK$2,000,000 as of August 2006. While the Chungking Mansions are nominally intended for residential use, there is a large variety of commercial establishments in the building. Chungking Mansions contains the largest number of guesthouses in Hong Kong in one building, with 1980 rooms in total. The rent ranges from HK$60 to HK$380 per day (as of 2006). Since it offers some of the cheapest rates in town, it has become a legendary haunt for backpackers and budget travellers. The age of the building, the diverse ownership, and management structure are the cause of the building's reputation for being a fire trap. The unsanitary conditions, security, ancient electrical wiring, block staircases contribute to the hazards. On February 21, 1988, a fire broke out in the building. A Danish tourist who was trapped inside was killed. The fire in this building, as well as a blaze in a similar building provoked a review of rules and regulations concerning public safety. CUHK anthropologist Prof. Gordon Mathews revealed that there are people from at least 120 different nationalities who have passed through Chungking Mansions in the past year. With this lively mix of guest workers, mainlanders, local Chinese, tourists and backpackers, the Chungking neighbourhood is one of the most culturally diverse locations in Hong Kong. Chungking Mansions was elected as the "Best Example of Globalization in Action" by TIME Magazine in its annual feature The Best of Asia, although racial tensions are known to boil over occasionally. It is also known to be a centre of drugs, and a refuge for petty criminals, scammers, and illegal immigrants. For example, in a Police swoop in June 1995, about 1,750 people were questioned, 45 men and seven women from various Asian and African countries were arrested on suspicion of offences including failing to produce proof of identity, overstaying, using forged travel documents, possessing equipment for forging documents, and possessing dangerous drugs. In "Operation Sahara" in 1996, 52 men and seven women from 14 countries were arrested for violating immigration regulations.

Hong Kong street clashes: man stood ground for his rights against police use of excessive force The violent protest in the Mongkok district of Kowloon during the start of the Chinese New Year started when anti-riot police cracked down on street food hawkers. The violence spread from Portland street to the tourist shopping areas of Mongkok in Sai Yeung Choi, Sai Yee and Argyle Road. Police use batons and pepper spray against the protesters and even fired live bullet shots in the air. The protesters used burning barricades and fought back by throwing bricks at the police. Many were injured including local civilians. The Mongkok area was the scene of some of the most violent clashes during the Occupy Movement in late 2014.
