It is one of the oldest areas of Kowloon. We usually go there to dine. There are many many Thai restaurants (as many Thai nationals live there). I personally think is the best Thai food you can get besides going to Thailand.

There's a few nice places that you'll be able to take quite a few photo's. However, quite a lot of Kowloon is run down. I've been to Kowloon a few times and the area could certainly do with loads of extra cash pumped in to it to update / renew a lot of the surrounding buildings.

Lots of Thai restaurants, but many are overpriced. Also, it's for Kowloon residents, I reckon, because there are plenty of good Thai places elsewhere in HK. Interesting neighbourhood and a good walk is from the Kowloon City along the old airport, out to Mongkok.

While Kowloon City has a nice history, we don't visit this area of Hong Kong much as there is little to do/see compared to the districts further south in Kowloon from Mongkok to TST, where you can find many more attractions, dining opportunities and probably better ways to spend your time in HK.

If you do want to visit the Kowloon City area, the most important attraction is the old Kowloon Walled City, which is a lesser known but decent historical attraction in Hong Kong. As if fails to make most visitors lists, its not seen by that many people.

The Kowloon City area is also famous, locally, for Thai food as a large Thai community lives in this area and quite a few restaurants exist to serve this popular SE Asian cuisine. Personally, we find that too many of these restaurants cater to the Cantonese tastes of over-sweetened Thai curries so we prefer eating Thai food in Wan Chai and Sai Kung where we have found more authentic Thai restaurants.

Nearby you can also visit a nice shopping mall called Festival Walk, exiting the Kowloon Tong MTR. This is the best attraction in the nearby Kowloon Tong area.

Overall, Kowloon City isn't a bad place to visit. There just isn't enough to do/see in this part of Hong Kong and thus we don't recommend spending time here until you have a long trip 10+ days to Hong Kong. Instead, you should concentrate your time on more important and interesting areas of Hong Kong.
