As one of the most densely populated areas in Hong Kong, Sham Shui Po is known for its public housing history, ethnically diverse population, and in recent years ironically the many subdivided flats and cage homes alongside new coffee shops, eateries, boutiques and art spaces. Being listed in “the 40 Coolest Communities in the Word” in one particular magazine, this area continues to provoke discussions on gentrification of old neighbourhoods. This walk starts from lesser-known locations in Sham Shui Po and then through  the bustling commercial streets and  trendy new areas,  looking, understanding, constructing and imagining the community’s past, present and future.
