It has been slightly over a year since Kennedy Town MTR Station has opened and today, the Hong Kong town is an up-and-coming destination with so much that awaits.

While the dining landscape at Kennedy Town is transforming rapidly with its high turnover rate, we have to admit that it is definitely currently one of Hong Kong’s hottest hangout spots. It is really a different world there.

From making a trip to Instagram Pier, grabbing liqueur from Sunday’s Grocery to having a meal at Cobo House, here is our Beginner’s Guide to Kennedy Town in Hong Kong.


The sheer selection of dining establishments over at Kennedy Town will leave you dizzy in glee. Perhaps it is the inviting sea that surrounds the neighbourhood but we love how each restaurant exudes laid-back chill vibes.

Sunday’s Grocery is actually far from a full-fledged grocery store. The highlight of all the items sold at Sunday’s Grocery is the range of premium exclusive liquors that is almost impossible to find elsewhere.

saiwan swimming shed


You would have seen this on many’s Instagram feed by now. If you are still wondering what and where it is, it is Sai Wan Swimming Shed in Kennedy Town.

Despite being a swimming shed, Sai Wan Swimming Shed is actually very much a popular photography spot. There is often a queue to get your photos taken at the now-iconic “bridge”!

Do note that the place is infested with mozzies, so brace yourselves with insect repellant. And oh, proper walking shoes would be great because to get to the swimming shed, you will have to climb up and down many flights of stairs and take uneven, bumpy roads. The journey there is pretty much a challenging one.
