Things to see
A beautiful way of getting from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central Hong Kong Island (and back). It only takes about 10-15 minutes to cross the bay, but it's a lovely way to enjoy the amazing views of the city!
Practically impossible to get to the boulevard, but still a pretty cool experience watching the fireworks along with thousands of Chinese people and tourists.
At Chinese New Years these Dragon Dances are all over town. Try to see a show, the moves these people make are quite acrobatic.
Kowloon Park is located in busy Tsim Sha Tsui. It's a real getaway, even though it's always busy with people exercising, eating or reading a book! Here you'll find huge, jungle like trees. There's a tree walk, a rose garden and even stone tree walls. Even a few museum house in this park, as well as a sports centre and a swimming pool.
This is one of the oldest zoological and botanical gardens in the world. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city this is good place to be. There are different types of gardens and animals like primates, reptiles and birds.
Designed by I.M. Pei and completed in 1990. Probably one of the most famous skyscrapers in the Hong Kong Skyline. Especially at nighttime, when everything lights up, this building really stands out. The architect of the building got his inspiration from growing bamboo shoots. It was the first building outside the US that was taller than 305 meters.
40 Nathan Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui
It's a 16 story building full of hostels, hotels, restaurants and shops. It's fairly cheap for Hong Kong. Across from the Tsim Sha Tsui subway station.
A1 12/F Block A Chung King Mansion, Nathan Rd.
This was the guesthouse I stayed at at Chung King Mansion. If you're here for a short stay you won't mind the prisoncell-like rooms.
There's one on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui
China International Travel Service; Here you can buy bus tickets to Guilin and other places. You can also get your visa to China here.
