Hung Hom

Barrier-free Index

Share this:

Hung Hom used to be a harbour with red rocks, named after the colour of the rocks. After several land reclamations, the old Hung Hom site became a land, and the nearby land has taken on the name of Hung Hom. Hung Hom is now located in the middle of Victoria Harbour. Tourists can stroll along the waterfront to feel the same sea breeze as it has for over a century.

Kwun Yam Temple, Hung Hom


The Hung Hom Kwun Yam Temple was built in 1873 and is one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong. It is said that, during the Japanese attack on Hong Kong in 1941, the nearby dockyards were the bomb target, and after two major bombing raids, the houses next to the temple and the Hung Hom Kaifong Association Primary School were totally destroyed, but the temple stood still. The residents believed that the temple was blessed by Kwun Yam. Since then, the temple has become more popular. The 26th day of the first month in the lunar calendar is the festival of Kwun Yam Treasury Opening, and many people will come at midnight to pay their respects and borrow treasure from Kwun Yam for good fortune.

Short comments:
Start from Exit A of Whampoa Station, pass through Tak Man Street and Wuhu Street and walk for about 400 metres to Kwun Yam Street and turn right to Kwun Yam Temple. The road is generally flat. However, as with traditional temples, there are door sills outside the temple gate and many stairs inside, making it difficult for wheelchair users to enter the temple. If worshipers need to use the toilet, they can go to the public toilet outside the temple at the junction of Station Lane and Gillies Avenue South, where there is also an accessible toilet.


Address: No. 20 Station Lane, Hung Hom

Whampoa Garden, Whampoa Ship, Whampoa Gourmet Place


Whampoa Garden was formerly known as the Whampoa Dockyard, which was closed in 1985 and converted into the largest private housing estate in the area. It is also set up with the Whampoa, the main shopping centre in the area, with over 300 shops that meet the needs of nearby residents, including supermarkets and department stores, audio-visual appliances, home furnishings and design, as well as cinema and indoor entertainment shops. The Gourmet Place is full of food from the East and West.

Short comments:
The accessibility facilities at Whampoa are quite adequate, and its lifts and accessible toilets all meet design standards. Ramps are provided at sections of varying heights and are flat so that wheelchair users can get on and off easily. The entrances and tables of the restaurants in the Gourmet Place are also accessible to wheelchair users. However, some areas in the mall have no signs to guide wheelchair users.




When building the Whampoa Garden, builders found an ancient cannon in the grounds, which was estimated to be lost from a battleship upon authentication. The old cannon was later placed here and commemorated with a plaque, and combining with the colourful rainbow tunnel behind the cannon, it become a photo spot today.
