To Kwa Wan is a district right next to the Former Hong Kong Kai Tak International Airport. It’s my first visit to there. My first impression to the district is pretty much untouched since the early 90s. Buildings there remarks the era of that time.
It’s an old district. What does that mean? It’s full of retired/old residents. And occasionally I see Southeast Asians as well. Most of the people who lives there are below the poverty line. The district is very relaxed with not much going on around. No huge shopping malls whatsoever. And people hang out on the streets.
While To Kwa Wan is not as vibrant and full of energy like in Kowloon City, it still has its charm. There’s no Coffee cafe or Bistro. It’s full of Cantonese cafe. I’m sure there should be some good ones around which I haven’t spend time discover.
I walked around to feel the environment. I thought it’s best to capture the older generation folks and the auto shops which you would see in this set.
There’s not too much going on but I captured what I see and meant to me from my first visit to the district.
