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 get some respite from the often scorching heat.
Pop into one of many dessert places for a cool refreshment. Ching King mansions houses authentic Indian cuisines, often homemade and sold in converted apartments. Definitely worth visiting for the experience.

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 drop off point (also same location for pick up) was exactly opposite East Sha Tsui metro station or behind the Sheraton hotel.

I had never seen such busy streets while roaming around the area. There were people carrying placards of various establishments such as hotels, restaurants and shops. A lot of good buys just about everywhere you go.

And just because i'm on a transit, I made sure to follow the traffic rules strictly. Most of the attractions are on the opposite side, and it took me some time looking for the pedestrian crossing. All I could find from every corner of the streets are "subways" and told myself no, I don't want to take another train and go somewhere else. Little did i know subways are pedestrian underpasses. Darn! It was fun though!

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 troublesome at times, make sure you are firm but fair with them, as they can signal ahead to other touts to tackle you at each turn and trouble you each step of the way, but a kind word can allow free a path or passage.
