Urban walking at Jordan area, Hong Kong



Jordan is an area in Hong Kong, located on Kowloon Peninsula. It is named after a road of the same name in the district. The area is bordered by King's Park to the east, Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Ferry Point to the west, and Yau Ma Tei to the north. Administratively, it is part of Yau Tsim Mong District.

Geography

Jordan is located in the central part of the Yau Tsim Mong District. The western portion is officially known as Kwun Chung, especially before the MTR metro system went into service in 1979.

Jordan is considered as an area surrounded by Cox’s Road to the east, Austin Road to the south, Ferry Street to the west, and Kansu Street to the north. This would make Jordan approximately 1-square-kilometre (0.39 sq mi) in size with a population of about 150,000.

Like most of southern Kowloon, Jordan is entirely developed and urbanised other than a few small parks. Motor and pedestrian traffic throughout most of the day is very dense.

Jordan is a microcosm of working-class Hong Kong. Like nearby districts of Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui, large sections of Jordan hosts a mix of older residential high-rises, office buildings, street markets, hotels, eateries and an almost infinite variety of small shops. There are also sections offering karaoke, hostess bars and massage parlours, however, nearby Mong Kok is better known for such services.

Although Jordan lacks the sights and comforts to support mass mainstream tourism, it still attracts a small cadre of adventurous tourists interested in experiencing authentic working-class life in Hong Kong. For locals, many live in Jordan for its relatively affordable housing, its centralised location on the spine of Hong Kong's transportation network and its diverse cultural flavour.

Jordan is home to a large number of Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese and other ethnic minorities. The area bordering Ferry Point therefore hosts a wide array of South Asian and other restaurants and market stores.
