Kowloon is more residential, covered in towering apartment buildings, surrounded by mountains, the only place to build here is up. Many of the apartment buildings look like they've seen better days; residents string clothes out the window to dry; the tile of the buildings are weathered and beaten. The apartments can't be older then the 1970s but look like they were built in the 1920s.
