One of the best districts for strolling around. The bustling main streets contrast with the busy back streets, but all having a feel of constant action and change with the great harbor so close by. And, plenty of shops to visit and restaurants to try. Only downside is the number of irritating card-carrying sales-people insisting you visit their tailor or... More

The first time I went to HK was in 2003 and I came back for a short transit a few months ago. HK seems to have grown a lot in terms of skyscrappers. Tsim Sha Tsui was much more busier but it is always good to have a short visit in HK.

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
