Unfortunately, the city was demolished in 1994 but what would your life have been like if you lived inside? This is my attempt to explain. #1 in most densely populated cities ever category.

To all you non New Yorkers I want you to keep in mind that the 10,000 per square kilometer for the city is also including areas like Staten Island and queens where it is mostly neighborhoods with low density relative to the rest of the city. The photo in the video shows manhattan and its population density is 27,000 per square kilometer.

If I grew up in that neighborhood town then it'll be easier for me to find my crushes I had from schools and tell them how I feel and I wouldn't feel regretful anymore.

GodzillaFan 2016 (4 days ago)
Wrong Park, Kowloon Park & Kowloon Walled City Park are different, Kowloon park in Tsim Sha Tsui, and Kowloon Walled City Park in Kowloon City, Kowloon Park is way further away from the former Kai tak Airport than the Kowloon Walled City Park, but great and mostly accurate videos!
GodzillaFan 2016 (4 days ago)
6:44 The Former Kai Tak Airport (The Kai Tak Cruise terminal replaced the location of Kai tank Airport due to higher High rises, and it's true (and funny) that and when you said that airplanes nearly crash into everything.)

The city didn't catch a fire from faulty electrics or accidentally throwing cigarettes on combustible trash? Also, I think I usually still see something close to this on popular medias like animes, CGI movies, drawing illustrations, or on books.

"unfortunately you can't visit it anymore... It became a lame park" Easy for you to speak, living comfortably in your house, not imagining how it would be the lives of the people who lived there, their struggle, and you being the imbecil tourist who comes to the place to take some selfies and leave back to your home.

4:40 "Dog eaters", you do know that they still eat dog all over China right? That's not just in the walled city. Many times they actually torture the dog before killing it because it "makes the meat tastier". There's a whole festival around this, there's footage of a poor dog laying on a table skinned alive. It's enough to make you want to nuke the entire Han population.
