KWUN TONG

Kwun Tong may be the industrial district, but it is so much more than that. Its nondescript warehouses have nurtured some of the city’s best and brightest indie music talents, who, while encompassing a vast array of genres, are a far cry from mainstream Cantopop. Where else could you check out furniture shops, get served your dinner by a local math rock band, then see a showcase of shoegaze acts all in one day? The district also houses KITEC, which is an exhibition centre, shopping mall, and auto mall all rolled into one. The one-size- fits-all destination’s got a kickass series of concert halls (we’re calling it, Kwun Tong is the unofficial music capital of Hong Kong), a trampoline park, shops as far as the eye can see, and a massive cinema. But Kwun Tong’s not slacking on the gastronomical front, either. Did you know that the best bit of the Lei Yue Mun corridor between Hong Kong and Kowloon (a.k.a. its renowned fishing village) is situated in Yau Tong? Here, you can handpick your seafood from the tank and twiddle your thumbs at the dining table as the restaurant prepares it to your taste. It doesn’t get any fresher than that.
