Is Kwun Tong just a typical industrial district? Kwun Tong was initially an official salt pond before it turned into the largest industrial area in East Kowloon. The large-scale reclamation after the war has changed the fate and shaped the present form of Kwun Tong - substantial population growth, emergence of industries, a large number of public facilities and buildings in the area...The tour will start from the factories with outstanding appearance and finish at the waterfront, during which we will catch a glimpse of the dramatic changes in Hong Kong's post-war social life and urban planning.
