Walking around Tsim Sha Tsui East is like a journey back to the 1980s. The buildings, relatively small in Hong Kong standard, do not change much in the past decades. The Christmas decoration, although overshadowed by some newer features in the city, is still a major event. December is the best time of visit.

A breathtaking site, with the symphony of lights, who can miss it! Worth going, especially at night and prepare your camera!

We caught the ferry here from Central Hong Kong, it’s a nice buzzing area with many shops but really the reason we went here was to watch the lights come on from the pier. It’s really impressive as you see Hong Kong come to life! Definitely recommend!

Great part of town to view the skyscrapers at night. High end shopping and old hotels like the Peninsula. Also Oh to the art museum and science Museum.

Even though we had been to Hong Kong, we hadn't really been to this part of the city. We had only gotten as far as the clock tower but hadn't gone east of that. This time, our hotel, The Shagri-La was in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui East. In fact, it was only steps away from the Tsim Sha Tsui East MTR station which made travel much more convenient.

We walked back to our hotel from the Star ferry terminal along the promenade and the Avenue of Stars at night and never felt unsafe. Plenty of people out and about. We also were not impacted by the protests, but upon or return home to the US, I turned on the news to see a protest march that had gone through the heart of TST East. You have a much lesser chance of being impacted during the week as most protest activities are on the weekend. You won't want to miss out on this beautiful area of the city on your next visit.

Just walk around and check out life in downtown. Lots of malls/shops that suit all budgets. Only problem is yours trying to get you to buy tailored suits or massages...just ignore and enjoy the best side of Hong Kong

Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) East is a part of TST. It is a favorite spot in HK, especially among the tourists, due to presence of several shopping, restaurants and nightlife options. Luxury malls to casual shopping, eateries of varied cuisine & tastes etc. are all present in TST. Also, popular tourist spot like Victoria Harbour to enjoy the Skylines view, Star Ferry, Cultural Centre, Museum etc. are all present within walkable distance. Communication wise also excellent and well connected with MTR, Bus. Cab. (Street view)

The land for Tsim Sha Tsui East is east of Chatham Road South and was reclaimed from Hung Hom Bay in the 1970s. This is an area with lots of office buildings and restaurants. It has the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade which is a tourist magnet. The Hong Kong Museum of History and Hong Kong Science Museum are also popular in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

As rents and tastes fluctuate the number of stores selling prescription eyeglass have drastically diminished in this area. My favorite store on Chatham Road closed. After doing some research I remembered the first time I was in Hong Kong 15 years ago and had a good experience with Classy Optical. I went out to find their new location at 77 Peking Road. For a optical store to be in this competitive business speaks for itself. I have a very difficult and strong prescription and the real attraction of purchasing glasses in Hong Kong is that they do not have U.S. restrictions so my glass from Hong Kong do not look like Coke bottles. Because I do have a difficult prescription, I told the owner to send me the glasses in the U.S. rather than try a famous Hong Kong two day special. I received my three pair February 2nd, less than a week and a half after ordering. They are perfect and the lenses are thin. I will say the prices are not cheap for a prescription like mine. However if you have more than one pair, or want to buy frames, I would negotiate a discount. I successfully did. Better to negotiate with the owner, the salespeople are on commission. Classy Optical really did a wonderful job and I will be returning.

When I first moved to HK back in the dark ages, this was all just water. Through reclamation it has become a focal point for expensive hotels and some of the museums that line the harbourfront starting from the Star ferry (not all of which are in TST East). In my view, the best thing to do in the area is the History Museum off Chatham Road (terrific!) or get off Mody and Chatham Roads and wander thrugh the side streets, where coffee shops and cafes tend to be--not always--more authentic and affordable.

Everything gets quite busy at meal times. Plan for that. And the key MTR entrance is just at one end so plan for some walking, too.
