A great place for tourists, especially for first timers to Hong Kong. Very touristy.

Accommodation: Lots of affordable and decent hostels on and near Nathan road. Lots of mid-range hotels (BP International, YMCA, Kimberly Hotel) to high-end hotels(The Peninsula, Sheraton, Shangri-la). Avoid staying in Chung King mansion if you can or in short, stay there at your own risk. It may be really cheap to stay there, but the environment is a bit sketchy. Okay if you're going with a group perhaps.
Shopping: I think TST has more variety than Causeway Bay when it comes to shopping - lots of both very high (Canton road) and very low end shopping (Chungking Mansions). Causeway Bay is great for mid- to high-end shopping. Tsim Sha Tsui also has a newly opened SOGO dept. store, previously only found in Causeway Bay. Other shopping centers include K11, isquare
Dining: Lots of restaurants and dessert cafes on and just off Nathan Road
Attractions: Avenue of Stars (where you can watch the Symphony of lights at 7 or 8pm, Star ferry ride (to Central), Nathan road shops, HK Space Museum, HK Science Museum; HK Musuem of Art (next to the Avenue of stars); just a short bus ride to Mongkok's markets (Ladies market, Temple Street market and Jade Market)

Although I missed the chance to spend the whole day at Tsim Sha Tsui, but the it is still the place where you can spend the whole day....shopping, stroll along for window shopping, and have coffee or tea, while watching other people passing by....
This january, again I was there and find the ZENPACHI, serving the best shabu-shabu in town, ....In Indonesia you called it "Mak Nyus..." it's the feeling or taste when you put the slice of the shabu-shabu meet into your mouth...
The next evening, we tried the WA-EN, seems the two belongs to the same group of restaurants, here they serve Yakiniku. We came quite late, so we ate quite hastily, but we enjoyed the meat quality and the sauce too.
The Shabu-shabu and Sukiyaki we tried the night before, was also very good, the meat and sauce were excellent and the service meet our satisfaction, as a very attentive assistant manager helped serving our table of ten pax and two babies.
They have no other outlets in Hongkong, so you need to go to The Toy House at Tsim Sha Tsui if u wish to enjoy a real good authentic taste of Shabu-shabu, Sukiyaki and Yakiniku in Hongkong.

Super busy and very touristy. I mean, the shops are the same you would find in Montreal, New York, Paris, etc. nothing new. And there were those annoying people trying to get you to buy watches and electronics (all fake I presume). I would say its worth checking out if you enjoy large crowds and shopping. But the real experience, in my mind, was more towards the Hong Kong museum of art and the pier and then Hong Kong island.

I love TST. I always stay here, i shop here snd i eat here. It has everything to offer, from tailors to food to shopping to the Symphony of Lights to the Star Ferry.

I still venture to other areas, but i just love TST. And it is so central to everything.

If you are a tourist and want to see tourist shops, go here. We stayed here, and it was fun staying in the middle of the action. I've honestly never seen so many malls, with high end shops. There must be 3 cartier's within a 2 block radius of each other. Take the star ferry over from HK island and start exploring. Food, drinks, shops, tailors, etc. its here!
