You may be aware that the Chinese word for Hong Kong is 'fragrant harbor.' But did you know that when you say 'Kowloon,' you're actually pronouncing 'nine dragons'? According to legend, a youthful emperor spotted the area's eight hills and christened it "eight dragons." Later, a servant reminded the emperor that he, too, is a dragon, bringing the total to nine. In Cantonese, Kow sounds like 'gau' or 'nine,' while Loon sounds like 'lung' or 'long,' both of which signify dragon.
