Kowloon

The Kowloon Walled City, apparently the inspirational source of Shenmue II’s Kowloon, was completely demolished in 1993. In Shenmue 2 Kowloon is located upon a mountain, some sort of a symbolized presentation – I guess. Actually, the northern area of Kowloon, today known as Kowloon City, lies a few feet higher above sea level than the rest of Kowloon and Hong Kong. The former Kowloon Walled City area is now Kowloon Walled City Park, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to!
