When I have a little more energy I will come and write
about my 9 months stay in HK..
TST area in Kowloon is a vibrant area with Nathan Road
as it's main artery. Tourists, triads, hawkers, resident Indians
with turbans, back packers, brokers, pensioners, police, shop keepers,
office workers, civil servants, smugglers, scammers, families, babies,
house wives, grand fathers, bar workers, kitchen workers, hoteliers,
taxi drivers, teachers,
The best thing to do in HK is go shopping until your feet ache. That's what we do from the start of the morning until the evening. We just go around and look for discount stores to shop and evening markets.We also went to Shatin, HK and went to Snoopy's world.
The Nathan Road is the main commercial street of Kowloon, beginning just a few metres off Victoria Harbour. I like it best in the evening hours, when the giant billboards are illuminated and there is still so much life going on in Kowloon.
This building of low price guesthouses has become a legend in Hong Kong, in that it has resisted being knocked down so many times as it is a fire trap and very grotty looking too! The last 3 floors are full of fabric, fast-food and video shops. Apparently there are some cheap and tasty Indian restaurants inside, but I couldn’t bring myself to venture that close!
Nathan Road, or the Golden Mile as it is called is the main street that you come across as you come off the ferry in Tsim Sha Tsui. Along Nathan Road you can find bars, restaurants, tailors, electrical shops. It is best seen at night. A had to be done experience, but not really my kind of thing. Beware – the touts,harmless but annoying all the same!
This is the busiest part of HK, where throughtout the day you will find loads and loads of people walking around, i guess people love to walk in hk, thats the reason why they r so fit.
you will find a lot of different cultures in the nathan road, from indian, to japanese. from africa to russia.
there are many restuarants to help you here, it will eat half of your day once u r here. the end of nathan road leads to the harbour, where you can click an amazing view of the island side.
Nathan road is a shoppers paradise.. So many electrical and electronics shops, clothes including designer labels, great eating places...in fact any thing your little heart may desire! Even if you dont want to shop,its worth a couple of hours or wandering and taking in the atmosphere!!
The celebrated Nathan Road is a vertiginous canyon of shops, a sea of neon at night and packed with people at all hours of the day. Multi-layers of boutiques, jewelers, camera shops, souvenir shops, tailors, electronics shops, restaurants, nightclubs, pubs and eateries line both sides of the road as well as the surrounding streets and alleyways. Meander through all of them if you have the time, you are bound to get some very good deals.
To target designer wear, walk along Canton Road and Salisbury Road. Explore Granville Road and Cameron Road for porcelain, embroidery and factory outlets. Mody Road for souvenirs.
The streets branching off Haiphong Road for small boutiques and market stalls and for the more exotic, stroll through Chungking Mansions on Nathan, lots of ethnic shops, curry houses and dark passages there.
The Nation Road is a traditional 'tourist area'.
With many shops aimed for the tourist, whom are not well informed about the price.
Be extra-caustion when shopping in those small company - less then ~1000' sq ft shops.
For big chain store, you may get no surprise then again you won't be traped.
Nathan Road is one of the most famous streets of Hong Kong, and over the years has become quite a landmark for Hong Kong. Its the main thoroughfare in Kowloon that goes in a south - north direction starting at Tsim Sha Tsui, and going to Mongkok.

Its a very long and wide street, and where-ever you are, you can see all the striking neon signs, all in an electric atmosphere you feel when walking down the streets in Hong Kong.
The street is lined with many shops, and restaurants and is very popular with tourists as well as the locals.
