Join our group for an enriching Saturday, afternoon walk around historical Kennedy Town with HK historian and lecturer, Jason Wordie. 

By the 1870s the city of Victoria (which, broadly speaking, comprises today’s Sheung Wan, Central, Wanchai and Causeway Bay) was developed almost beyond its existing capacity. This lead to Kennedy Town being one of the first efforts at urban decentralization in Hong Kong. 

Explore with us some surviving examples of inter-war architectural styles, temples and some very significant military relics. One of the most surprising sites to be visited is the Lo Pan Temple. Long-established shops and other businesses add to the district’s bustling atmosphere.

Meet our group at the West Gate of Hong Kong University on Pokfulam Road, next to the Haking Wong Building at 13:45.  The walking tour will start promptly at 14:00.

Jason will lead us around the upper areas of Kennedy Town from the HK University and ending at the west end of Kennedy Town by the Lo Pan Temple.

Our group can then decide to enjoy a cool drink or snacks at the K'Town Bar & Grill after the walking tour is completed to discuss what we have discovered during the afternoon.

Cost for the guided tour is HKD 450/per person.

Drinks & food after the walk will be at your own expense.

Do wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water to drink along the way!
