Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) is the heart and soul of Hong Kong situated at the very tip of the Kowloon Peninsula and is best reached by taking the scenic Star Ferry across the harbour from Central. Along with Causeway Bay, this area offers you non-stop shopping opportunities from Harbour City to TST East. From the massive Ocean Terminal/Harbour City, head up Peking Road, past the myriad of jewelers, bars and restaurants until you reach Nathan Road. Known as "The Golden Mile", Nathan Road will dazzle you with it's sights, sounds and smells. Chungking Mansions is well worth the visit and is a great spot for some authentic, affordable Indian food. If you still have the energy after tackling "The Golden Mile", why not check out the sidewalks of Granville and Cameron Road, a favourite spot for factory outlet clothing.

If shopping is not your thing and you prefer a more cultural experience while in Hong Kong, TST has the highest concentration of cultural centres and museums in the area. There are numerous hotels and budget accommodations in the area as well, but views of Hong Kong Island on Victoria Harbour will cost you. If all you really need (or can afford!) is a place to lay your head, check out the hostels in the area around Chungking Mansions. No matter where you are staying, the only spot to be seen Sunday afternoons in Tsim Sha Tsui is at The Peninsula Hotel, having high tea. Had enough of TST? Why not catch the Kowloon-Canton Railway up to the Mainland at the terminus in Hunghom, next to the HK Coliseum.

Do not miss the largest high-tech outdoor fountain show in the Centenary Garden in Tsim Sha Tsui East. The show will last 7 minutes with 2 sessions on each 6pm and 8pm on every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, starting from Dec 11, 2001 to Feb 26, 2002. This features a "Pillar of Heaven" rising about 20 metres in the air with cascading mist combining with real fire, light, water and music. There will be extra show on 24 , 26, 31 of Dec and 11, 13 of Feb.

The Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre has the largest piece of festive lighting in the world.
