Nathan Road and the night market
Nathan road is an experience in itself, particularly at night. It's safe enough, I think, but there are rows of seedy-looking electronics shops, which I think I'd discourage anyone from buying from. But there are legitimate shops too, like Timberland, for instance (which happens to be JUST as expensive as in the U.S.). There are karaoke bars, restaurants, men trying to sell you new suits ('NEW SUIT! YOU, NEW SUIT!'), men leading you off into alleys to take a look at their 'Rolexes' (here, I'd be wary of anyone leading you off, although we did - make sure you're with a sizeable group if you do this!!). There's the night market farther down on the left down an alley (as you're walking away from the harbor on Nathan). Ok, my best advice is to just wander and explore the different places around here. I spent a good amount of time here and still didn't see everything I could have.
Address: On the Tsim Sha Tsui penninsula of Kowloon.
Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon. A lot of accommodations, bars and shoppings, especially along main road Nathan Road also termed as Golden Mile. The street was named after Sir Matthew Nathan who was the chief engineer and later a governor of Hong Kong. Located there is also the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Hong Kong Cultural Centre. See if you can catch a show.
Aaah... this is undebatable.. go to the pier and take in the splendid view of the harbour and Hong Kong island. Majestic in daytime and seductive in the evening... you choose!
Kowloon is the territory´ tourist ghetto. It consist of one kilometer squre of shops, restaurants, pubs, topless bars and camara shops. Kowloon is also home to the Hong Kong cultural center, The space Museum and famous Peninsula Hotel and the Museum of History.
When you inside this building, u'll see at least 10 to 15 people waiting to get in to the left. too bad :-(
fortunately my guest house was not here.... :-)
If you can't find it on Nathan Road, it doesn't exist.
This areas has tons of shops under neon lights. It truly reminded me of NYC - and then some.

The Lady's Market is a great place for shopping, and just for seeing the wide range of goods available in Hong Kong. Definately worth a stroll through during daytime or evening.
