On the surface, Hong Kong seems like an intimidating metropolis made of glass and steel. However, once you dig a little deeper, you’ll find vibrant city brimming with history, culture and local traditions. This video is part of a series that takes you through some of Hong Kong’s best landmarks and attractions.

Kowloon Park

This lush, 13.3-hectare park sits in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui, one of Hong Kong’s busiest districts. Once a military base known as Whitfield Barracks, it was redeveloped into Kowloon Park in 1970. Facilities include an aviary, sculpture garden, swimming pool and sports centre. Kung fu and lion dance performances are held every Sunday. Be sure to catch a sight of the flamingos at Bird Lake and the terrapin turtles basking in the Chinese Garden.
