Kowloon Walled City Park
The Mountain View Pavilion

PhotoThe two-storey Mountain View Pavilion resembles a docked pleasure boat, with its dramatically upswept roof corners suggesting the boat's prow. Step back to admire the colonnaded pavilion, and the piled limestone in front takes on the appearance of high-sea waves. Climb the steps and, if you listen closely, you can almost hear the surge of the sea.

A glossy-red rickshaw is on display in the pavilion. Hand-pulled carts were once a common sight in Hong Kong. Indeed, there were still thousands in use in the late 1940s. Today, there are only a handful of rickshaws left, used mostly as a backdrop to holiday picture-taking rather than as a means of getting around. You can find them by the Star Ferry pier on Hong Kong Island.
