At the tip of the Kowloon Peninsula, Tsim Sha Tsui is one of Hong Kong’s major commercial districts. It served by Star Ferry and China Ferry terminals, both of which connect to Hong Kong Island. Next to the ferry terminals is the massive Harbor City shopping complex.
There are many hotels in Tsim Sha Tsui, and tourists based in the area divide their time between sprawling shopping centers and museums like the Hong Kong Museum of History, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Museum of Art and the Space Museum. Attractions like these are in Kowloon Park along with aviaries, gardens and swimming pools.
Even historic sites in Tsim Sha Tsui have a commercial edge. The 1881 Heritage building once headquartered the marine police. Today, the Victorian structure is a museum, hotel and shopping center in one. There are just as many modern attractions on the peninsula, including the Hollywood-like Avenue of the Stars.
In the evening, tourists leave the shops and museums for late-night entertainment districts. Knutsford Terrace at the center of Tsim Sha Tsui has a great selection of affordable restaurants and bars that attracts expatriates and tourists.
Getting around Kowloon, and all of Hong Kong, is easy thanks to the MRT. The most important local exchange is Hung Hom MTR station, but there are many other stops serving hotels in Tsim Sha Tsui. Tsim Sha Tsui East is an important up-market hotels district served by its own MRT station.
