Description:
Kennedy Town (; jyutping: gin1 nei4 dei6 seng4) is at the western end of Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong and the part of old Victoria City, named after Arthur Edward Kennedy who was the 7th Governor of Hong Kong from 1872 to 1877.

In the division of District Council of Hong Kong, the area roughly corresponds to the constituency areas of Kennedy Town and Mount Davis and Kwun Lung in the Central and Western District. The neighborhood is primarily Chinese, but a growing number of expats are moving into a number of luxury buildings built along the waterfront.

Kennedy Town is the western section of the earlier Victoria City. Due to its distance to major commercial cores and lack of MTR access, town development is not as vigorous as other parts of urban Hong Kong; this is expected to change when the MTR extends to the area.

Transport

Kennedy Town is the western terminus of the Hong Kong Tramways. In the summer of 2005, the ExCo approved the extension of the Island Line of the MTR through The Belcher's with a stop in Kennedy Town. The travel time to Causeway Bay is estimated to be 12 minutes once completed in approximately 2014.
