walk up to the terrace above Harbour City (Tsim Sha Tsui) in Kowloon. There are lovely statures and the view is great.
Harbour City is a two million square foot shopping mall with over 700 stores, 50 restaurants, two cinemas, and 4.4 million square feet of office towers.
Tsim Sha Tsui, at the tip of the Kowloon
Peninsula, is the busy tourist area. It consists
of one sq km of shops, restaurants, pubs, topless
bars and camera stores. However, Kowloon is also
home to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the
Space Museum, the famous Peninsula Hotel and the
Museum of History.
The Promenade, in East Tsim Sha Tsui, is a great
place for a stroll, and has wonderful views of
Victoria Harbour, particularly at night. The
liveliest night market in the territory is on
emple Street in Yau Ma Tei.
Favorite thing: Kowloon (the name means 'Nine Dragons') is the large peninsula on the Chinese mainland north of Hong Kong Island that became part of Hong Kong in 1860. Kowloon and in particular its southernmost tip, Tsim Sha Tsui (“Elephant's Trunk”), is where the majority of tourists end up staying. This is not only the budget accommodation centre of Hong Kong, but also the most cosmopolitan area of any Chinese city.
Favorite thing: Tsim Sha Tsui, at the tip of the Kowloon Peninsula, is the territory's tourist ghetto. It consists of one sq km of shops, restaurants, pubs, topless bars and camera stores. However, Kowloon is also home to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Space Museum, the famous Peninsula Hotel and the Museum of History. The Promenade, in East Tsim Sha Tsui, is a great place for a stroll, and has wonderful views of Victoria Harbour, particularly at night. The liveliest night market in the territory is on Temple St in Yau Ma Tei.
If you dont stay at the Peninsula Hotel then you must come for high tea or something.
Fondest memory: Besides my view of the harbor from my hotel room,I really enjoyed the ferry ride between Kowloon and HK island,cheap with great views.
Over at the Kowloon side of Hong Kong, the attractions there include -
Hong Kong Space Museum
Hong Kong Cultural Center
Museum of History
Temple Street Night Market
Fondest memory: A walk along busy Nathan Road in Tshimshatsui is another good alternative to feel your way around this ex-colony. Better known as the 'Golden Mile,' Nathan Road is a long and busy strip of neon-decorated shops, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, office and residential buildings.
Favorite thing: Besides meeting my good friends there, I loved Hong Kong's beautiful harbour view. You know, it is known to be the world's second most expensive place to put advertisement on the top of skyscrapers along the harbour. :) Of course, Victoria Peak is a very well-known place for look-out but I think the view from Kowloon side was much better and you can walk along the seashore at night with cool breeze.
Favorite thing: Hong Kong is commercial. The most people are looking for economical success in the small district. These bombastic signboards show how competitive the business it is.
Favorite thing: Another view of Kowloon Park with the highrises of Kowloon in the background... Kowloon Park would be a nice place to stop with your lunch...
Favorite thing: Have high tea at the famous old Peninsula Hotel in Kowloon. Tea is served in the lobby to the accompaniment of an orchestra which plays for dancing.
