Wong Tai Sin District

Welcome Message from Steve WONG, JP, District Officer (Wong Tai Sin)

Mr. Steve WONG, JP, District Officer (Wong Tai Sin)

Welcome to the website of the Wong Tai Sin District Office.

Located in the centre of the Kowloon urban area, Wong Tai Sin District is where vitality meets opportunities, and has always been a promising prospect for living with convenient transportation and a full range of facilities.

Wong Tai Sin District is immersed in traditional Chinese culture.  Apart from the revered and longstanding Wong Tai Sin Temple, the mind-cleansing Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden are also located in this district.  Moreover, Wong Tai Sin Cultural Garden exemplifies a Chinese culture-themed garden with a unique blend of Chinese and Western characteristics.  Every brick and block of the historic buildings in our district connects tradition with modernity and narrates stories with profound cultural background.

Grassroots residents make up the majority of our population in Wong Tai Sin District. According to the statistics from the Census and Statistics Department, about 80% of the population live in subsidised housing. On the other hand, around 17% of the district’s population are elderly, the highest ratio across the territory. The major task of Wong Tai Sin District Office is to implement the district administration initiatives and provide suitable services for residents in our district by pooling the strength of Government departments, Wong Tai Sin District Council and district organisations, with a view to improving the living environment and enhancing the sense of belonging among the residents.

In order to strengthen the communication with different sectors in the community, Wong Tai Sin District Office has established Wong Tai Sin District Fight Crime Committee, Wong Tai Sin District Fire Safety Committee, Wong Tai Sin District School Liaison Committee and four Area Committees to serve as platforms for collecting views on and discussing solutions for various issues.  Besides, the District Office has also established the District Management Committee to organise and coordinate the implementation of different Government services and public facilities programmes in our district. When necessary, the District Office will provide support and emergency relief for residents affected by emergency incidents and natural disasters to meet their needs.

I hope that you will have a better understanding of Wong Tai Sin District and the work of Wong Tai Sin District Office through this homepage. You are most welcome to live in or visit Wong Tai Sin District and participate in the activities held here to experience the harmonious mix of traditional and modern cultures.
