Tse­ung Kwan O

HK Magazine - - CITY STROLL -

Lit­er­ally mean­ing the “Gen­eral’s Bay,” Tse­ung Kwan O got its name all the way back in the Ming Dy­nasty, when the gov­ern­ment sent a fa­mous gen­eral to the bay to fight the pi­rates of the South China Sea.

The neigh­bor­hood has been mocked with the nick­name “street­less town” be­cause of its in­ter­con­nected malls and res­i­den­tial com­plexes, al­low­ing you to walk from one end to an­other with­out set­ting foot at ground level. But there’s more to this neigh­bor­hood and it’s not just about the malls—de­spite the area’s prom­i­nent land­fill, Tse­ung Kwan O has its beauty.
