Lying on the foot of Lion Rock, Kowloon Tong is administratively divided by Kowloon City and Sham Shui Po Districts. The area is well-structured. It is a low-density residential district, middle to upper-class love to live in this quiet area. Celebrities, billionaires and corporate senior executives also flock to move in. Townhouses on or around LaSalle Road and Oxford Road are of premier class.
There are many international and English schools within the district, such as American International School, Australian International School, Delia School of Canada, King George V School and Beacon Hill School.
Both the rail and the underground run through Kowloon Tong with two stations of the same interchanging. Modern shopping complex "Festival Walk" is just above the Kowloon Tong station..
