Kowloon Local Customs: 11 reviews and 24 photos
Of course, Hong Kong is overwhelmingly British, but at the same time it exists in large part thanks to the British. It would be foolish to think that there is no physical imprint of Britain's presence here, but the truth is that it is far more noticeable on Hong Kong Island, rather than Kowloon. You can still find, however, remnants of British colonial influence here, particularlyin the forms of architecture. Some of these buildings are Church of England places of worship, which explains why they would be so heavily influenced by British architecture, while others are simply buildings that were erected during the pre-War heyday of British influence. Either way, they make for great examples of the mix between British influence and the Chinese environment.
