A corner of a foreign field that was forever China.

In British colonial times, Kowloon City (originally a Chinese military fort) developed into a high-rise slum, more or less off-limits to the authorities and a haunt of drug addicts, criminals, and doctors and dentists so keen to get down to work that they skipped the laborious process of getting registered. It was finally demolished in 1994. The park that was laid in its place includes some interesting historical artefacts, and makes a good jumping off point for exploring other parts of the peninsular.
