History

A section of Fuk Lo Tsun Road, Kowloon City

Part of the district was the location of the original Kowloon City, see Kowloon Walled City. This is now Walled City Park.

The former airport, Kai Tak International Airport was also located in the district; part of it will be re-developed to be Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. In 1982, the Hong Kong Government decided to divide Hong Kong into 18 administrative districts, and Kowloon City and its neighbouring areas such as Hung Hom now belongs to Kowloon City District.
