Comment:
The ZCB has an barrier-free ramp at its entrance that allows wheelchair users for entry. The accessible toilet is located at the ground floor which is connected with the lady restroom. For men in wheelchairs, it is suggested to use the accessible toilet at the café in the Landscape Area.

MEGA BOX

 

MEGA BOX

MEGA BOX is a big shopping mall next to the ZCB. MEGA BOX is equipped with elevators reaching all floors as well as sufficient number of accessible toilets. The stores are larger in size than normal ones, with wider passageways inside the stores. This is why this shopping mall is quite convenient for disabled people. The downside of this shopping mall is that there is no wheelchair ramp at the front entrance, and wheelchair users can only access through the car park, where it can be quite dangerous. We advise that the shopping mall make necessary improvements.

Industrial Building of Kwun Tong District (Camel Paint Building)

Industrial Building of Kwun Tong District (Camel Paint Building)

With the fall of industries in Hong Kong, many industrial buildings in Kwun Tong have undergone transformation with small stores, restaurants and various brands of outlets springing up. As they are completely different from the standardized shopping malls, visitors may find something that surprise you. We are going to feature the Camel Paint Building at Kwun Tong.

After visiting the Kwun Tong Promenade, go straight from Tsun Yip St. and turn right on Hung To Road. When you get to Hoi Yuen Road, continue in the direction of Kwun Tong MTR station and you will arrive the Camel Paint Building, which should take you about 10 minutes. There is one step on the Hoi Yuen Road entrance and we suggest wheelchair users to access through the Hing Yip St.

There are in total of three buildings in the Camel Paint Building complex, with diverse stores from snacks, fine dining, cosmetics, clothing, toys, stylish restaurants to themed party houses. It’s the ideal place for shopping lovers to spend a whole day in.
