Dragon Centre (Chinese: 西九龍中心) is a nine-storey shopping centre in the Sham Shui Po district of Kowloon, Hong Kong; it was the largest in West Kowloon until the Elements opened its doors in above the Kowloon MTR Station.

History[edit]

Located beside the historic Sham Shui Po Police Station, the centre was built on part of the site of the former Sham Shui Po Camp, a prisoner-of-war camp for Commonwealth forces captured during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, which was also used to house Vietnamese refugees in the late 1970s and 1980s (see boat people).

Features[edit]

Sunlight shines from the skylight through to the first floor. A bus terminus is located on the ground floor, and the ninth floor features an indoor roller coaster which hangs from the roof, as well as an ice skating rink. However, the roller coaster has been closed for several years. The leading tenant is Sincere, a department store.
