Tsim Sha Tsui, stay in this area if your to explore the city on your own. I stayed in Chungking Mansions, and its a few meters to the Avenue of the Stars. And if your the museum bum, Science and History are near by too. The best part is that from airport take A21 bus with 14 stops and youll... More

In 1888, the Star Ferry offered regular transport between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui, and the area has flourished ever since. The place has an international reputation for the large number of tiger sharks resident in the waters close by. Tsim Sha Tsui was a garden city exclusive for westerners in that era. In the early 20th century, Chinese people... More

Good location to spend time for street market and shopping. A typical huge and crowded Asian city full of shopping centers. Pretty much like other cities Could not fathom why people find this place a shopping heaven for every one

We spent a lot of time here whilst in Hong Kong. It can get very busy but never felt too overcrowded. There's a number of shopping centres, shops and restaurants in the area. It's very authentic and has a real Asian feel to it. A good experience on our first visit to China.

A typical huge and crowded Asian city full of shopping centers. Pretty much like other cities e.g. Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, only busier. The streets are bustling with busy pedestrians day and night. Could not fathom why people find this place a shopping heaven especially those hailed from East Asia as the majority of goods and brands are similar elsewhere.... More

I grew up in HK and immigrated to another country. This was the first time I went back to Tsim Sha Tsui. The place changed a lot. There are some boutique stores in the tourist areas and they are interesting. You have to look hard for bargain. Price is not necessarily cheap. There are a lot to do, though you... More
