Mix of the traditional, cultural, and modern side of HK. Hotels located here are somehow cheaper compared to the hotels at HK mainland. Staying in the area gives you the traditional Hong Kong environment blended with the touch of cultural (night market) and modern buildings (Harbour City).

Having worked for eight years in Hong Kong, I like to think I know a bit about this amazing city. Tsim sha tsui is where to go for delicious food, knocked down electronics and clothes. Nathan road runs through the middle, all the way to the star ferry. Busy busy busy! There are plenty of shopping malls where you can... More

If you have a very limited time and wanted to see several attractions while in Hong Kong, this is the perfect place for you. I only got 10 hours layover for my next flight. I immediately grabbed a map, bought a two-way metro ticket to Kowloon. From there, I took a free airport shuttle to East Tsim Sha Tsui. The... More

This feels more like real Hong Kong with some authentic backs streets - look for the caged snakes waiting to be to chosen and eaten plus some excellent martial arts hang outs.

With less chaotic mayhem of the Island or other parts of Kowloon, but within touching distance if you need to let your hair down, and go amongst the streets or to a venue. We prefer to set up our base here on our visit, and to go out elsewhere to experience and explore. The Indian Tailors touting their trade are... More

We like TST East as you have easy access to TST and Nathan Rd but it is quieter, safer and without the hassle of being hassled by touts every time you leave your hotel. It is wonderful being in easy reach of the Avenue of Stars and Victoria Harbour. There is a great boardwalk and it is a beautiful walk... More

East Tsim Sha Tsui is one MTR station away from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station but is of walkable distance. Shops and food outlets are all over the place, and the streets are very beautiful alongside the river separating the other side of Hong Kong Island. Most people come here for the shops and view.

If there is a shopper's paradise anywhere in the world, it must be this place. While we found it too packed and crowded at times, its numerous shops and sale booths offer absolutely anything you might ever wish to buy. Of course, being part of China, you need to bargain like mad, but still - well worth the visit.

A great place to stay, if you like great views of Victoria Harbor, great shopping on Nathan Road, and a great park, Kowloon Park. A lot of five star hotels. Convenient transportations, ferry, and MTR. A little crowed, but typical of tourist areas.
