Tsim Sha Tsui, located on the Kowloon Peninsula, is a place with many high-end shops and high-end restaurants. For those who travel to Hong Kong from overseas, Tsim Sha Tsui should be the most suitable place to enjoy the night view of Victoria Harbour, and it is also a must-visit attraction in every Hong Kong travel itinerary.

However, for those who live in Hong Kong for a long timeWeFor me, Tsim Sha Tsui is probably a place where we work on weekdays and a place where we spend time during holidays. We visit Tsim Sha Tsui at least once a day.

Because Tsim Sha Tsui is indeed a place where many offices, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, and museums are gathered. If you want to seriously visit every restaurant and every scenic spot in Tsim Sha Tsui, you may not be able to finish shopping for a few days. Not to mention that you only have a few hours to arrange the itinerary of Tsim Sha Tsui and Kowloon. If you lack a complete plan, you may miss some places in Tsim Sha Tsui that are worth visiting in the end.

So in this article, we will recommend some attractions, restaurants, and special activities in Tsim Sha Tsui that are worth visiting, whether you are a short-term visitor to Hong Kong, or you live in Hong Kong for a long time like us. Well, I believe you can find a day trip to Tsim Sha Tsui that suits you.

Attractions suitable for first-time visitors to Tsim Sha Tsui

If you are coming to Hong Kong for the first time and have never been to Tsim Sha Tsui, you can use the following recommendations to plan a day trip to Tsim Sha Tsui that suits you best.

First of all, it is arranged to depart from Tsim Sha Tsui Pier in the morning and go to Harbor City, Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, Peninsula Hotel, K11, K11 MUSEA, Avenue of Stars, Space Museum, and Canton Road near Tsim Sha Tsui Pier. Because these places can satisfy your curiosity about Hong Kong history and culture, and also allow you to visit between different shopping malls. Even on days when the weather is unstable, you can easily live in Tsim Sha Tsui.

In the afternoon, you can choose to enjoy the sunset at Sky 100, the West Kowloon Cultural District, or leave early to have dinner at a restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. But don’t forget to return to the side of the Tsim Sha Tsui pier on time at 20:00 in the evening, so that you can enjoy the Symphony of Lights and Music Show. Then arrange to go to the bar in Lan Kwai Fong in Central, or go to the restaurant in Mong Kok to eat something. I believe that such an itinerary plan can satisfy your various wishes, and also allow you to experience the history, culture, and shopping of Hong Kong in Tsim Sha Tsui.

In addition, this article will share with you some unique attractions in Tsim Sha Tsui. If you also like photography, you must not miss it!

Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier

The Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui, located at the forefront of the Kowloon Peninsula, can be said to be the starting point for many people to go to Tsim Sha Tsui for a day trip from Hong Kong Island.

The most special thing about the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui is that it has a history of more than 70 years since it was rebuilt in 1950. I have always witnessed the changes in Hong Kong in different periods, and it is also a place where many people come to experience the power of typhoons every year during the typhoon season in summer. At the same time, the Star Ferry connecting the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui and the Central Pier has been in operation for more than 100 years. As early as 1898, ferries have been put into service.

The current Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui is not only a must-see attraction for overseas tourists, but also a means of transportation that many Hong Kong people take every day. Especially around 08:00 in the morning, you must have the opportunity to experience the rush of daily life of Hong Kong people.

For a one-day trip to Tsim Sha Tsui, when you disembark from the Star Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, the direction to Harbor City is on your left, and the direction to Clock Tower and Peninsula Hotel is on your right. As for which direction to choose to go, it depends on your interest in shopping in shopping malls. You still want to visit different characteristic buildings and take photos with the scenery of Victoria Harbour.

Generally speaking, if you prefer to take photos with different characteristic buildings and Victoria Harbor scenery, we will recommend you to go to the Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui and the Peninsula Hotel first. Because in a sunny environment, it is easier to take a photo that you will be satisfied with. As for the itinerary to the Harbor City Shopping Centre, even if it is arranged to start after sunset, there will be no big problem, because many shops will be open until 21:00 in the evening, and you will have enough time to go shopping.

In addition, the Star Ferry connecting Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier - Central Pier will operate until 23:30 in the evening, so you must have enough time to shop in Harbor City and enjoy the night view of Victoria Harbour. Even if you plan to return to the hotel at 23:00 in the middle of the night, you don't have to worry about missing the transportation back to the hotel.

Star ferry

The Star Ferry has long been selected by tourists as a must-see attraction in Hong Kong. It is characterized by very cheap tickets and is also the best choice for taking photos with Victoria Harbour. Compared with the sightseeing transportation in other cities, the Star Ferry should be one of the cheapest sightseeing transportation in the world, because the one-way ferry ticket does not cost HK$$10.

The most interesting thing about the Star Ferry is that if you ride it once at two different times during the day and night, you can experience two completely different views of Victoria Harbour. This is why we always recommend that you take the Star Ferry from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui in the morning, and then take the Star Ferry back to Central in the evening.

In addition, before you are ready to board the Star Ferry, you can take a combined photo of the view of Victoria Harbor and the merger of the two Star Ferries from the best angle. Sometimes if you are lucky, you will even encounter the colorful Star Ferry.

View of Victoria Harbor in Tsim Sha Tsui

People often ask, if you want to take the best view of Victoria Harbour, should you take it from Tsim Sha Tsui or from the Central side?

To be honest, it is difficult to have an absolute answer to this question. Because the scenery of Victoria Harbor on both sides has its own characteristics and different supporters. However, if you want to use Hong Kong's high-rise buildings and the view of Victoria Harbor as the background, and then take a commemorative photo with the most Hong Kong characteristics, we will recommend you to go to the seaside garden next to the Tsim Sha Tsui pier.

The seaside garden next to the Tsim Sha Tsui pier not only has the best angle to take pictures of the Victoria Harbour, but also has the opportunity to see Lantau Island on a sunny day. In addition, there is often a Regal ice cream truck next to the cultural center, just like in the past few decades, it still sells the most traditional soft ice cream. special experience.

It is said that the Regal ice cream truck takes a lot of time to queue up on weekdays, but eating soft ice cream while taking photos with Victoria Harbor has become the favorite way for many people to take pictures in Hong Kong.

Harbor City, located next to Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, can be said to be a large shopping center with the most shops and restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui. In addition, Harbor City will also hold different exhibitions on a regular basis, which is definitely a choice of attractions that can arrange a half-day itinerary.

The characteristic of Harbor City is that among the more than 400 shops and more than 80 restaurants, many of them are branches of well-known international brands. And the types of shops also include clothing, cosmetics, electronic products, daily necessities, children's products, sports goods, etc. No matter who you come to Tsim Sha Tsui with, you can definitely find a few products that you will like to buy. In addition, in terms of restaurant selection in Harbor City, whether it is a relatively cheap fast food restaurant or a restaurant that requires an average consumption of more than HK$$300 per person, it is definitely easier than you think to find a restaurant that suits you!

A Symphony of Lights Light and Music Show

When you watch the sunset at the Tsim Sha Tsui pier, maybe you will go to have dinner first, and then go shopping in different stores. However, don’t forget to return to the Tsim Sha Tsui pier at 20:00 in the evening, otherwise you will miss the Symphony of Lights and Music Show.

The Symphony of Lights and Music Show is a light and shadow show that gathers 42 buildings, accompanied by a pre-recorded orchestra performance, so that you can enjoy a unique night view of Victoria Harbour. And the most special thing about the Symphony of Lights and Lights and Music Show is that you don’t need to buy any tickets, as long as you arrive at the Tsim Sha Tsui pier on time at 20:00 in the evening, you can enjoy it.

Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower

In the past, when Tsim Sha Tsui was the main train station, Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower was the starting point for departure to the New Territories. The Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower at that time may have been an ordinary clock tower to many people, and there was nothing special about it. However, since the train company changed the starting point of the train to Hung Hom, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower with a British design has gradually become a unique landmark in Tsim Sha Tsui and one of the statutory monuments in Hong Kong.

So far, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower has a history of more than 100 years, and it is also one of the few precious buildings in Hong Kong that has a history of 100 years and is fortunately not demolished.

And now, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower is a must-see photo spot in Tsim Sha Tsui. Because when you go to the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower at different times and from different angles, you can see that the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower is trying to show a different look.

For example, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower with the blue sky and white clouds as the background during the day, or the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower with the night view of the Victoria Harbor as the background at night, you can take two completely different photos. This is the interesting part of the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower.

If you want to take the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower from the best angle, it is recommended to stand in the pool in front of the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower and use the sky behind the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower as the background, so that it is easiest to take a beautiful photo.

peninsula hotel

The Peninsula Hotel, which experienced World War II and was once selected as one of the top ten famous hotels in the world, can be said to be the most exclusive hotel in Hong Kong, and it is also the hotel designated by many celebrities. If you have not decided to stay in a hotel in Hong Kong, you can have the opportunity to enjoy the entire Victoria Harbor by arranging to stay in a room at the Peninsula Hotel for one night.

In addition, the afternoon tea in the lobby of the Peninsula Hotel is also a very popular attraction. It is said that if you do not book a few months in advance, you will basically never have the opportunity to taste their afternoon tea.

If you also like to buy famous brand handbags, such as CHANEL, LOUIS VUITTON, DIOR, Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui is a scenic spot you have to go to.

Tsim Sha Tsui K11

Different from the shopping malls in Harbor City, Tsim Sha Tsui K11 is a shopping mall with the theme of art blending with life, so you can easily meet different artworks throughout K11.

And those stores in K11 in Tsim Sha Tsui are all brands related to daily life, ranging from beauty, fashion, to home furnishings. If you are not very interested in those famous handbags on Canton Road, maybe K11 in Tsim Sha Tsui is a place worth your time to shop.

K11 MUSEA

Like K11 in Tsim Sha Tsui, K11 MUSEA belongs to the K11 brand. It is another place in Tsim Sha Tsui that combines art and shopping. Compared with K11 in Tsim Sha Tsui, K11 MUSEA has a stronger artistic atmosphere. If you don’t tell you that it is actually a shopping mall, you may think it is an art gallery.

The stores in K11 MUSEA are mainly stores selling high-end living products and high-end restaurants. If you can’t find a suitable gift for your friends in other places in Tsim Sha Tsui, I believe that there are many boutiques in K11 MUSEA that can give you more choices.

In addition, above K11 MUSEA is the 5-star hotel K11 ARTUS in Tsim Sha Tsui, which is characterized by providing large and luxurious rooms, and can also monopolize the night view of the entire Victoria Harbour. If you are planning a Hong Kong travel itinerary to celebrate a special festival, I believe that the rooms of K11 ARTUS can leave you with unforgettable memories.

Tsim Sha Tsui Avenue of Stars

For you who like Hong Kong movies, the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui is a place where you can take photos with the signatures and handprints of the stars. In addition, because the Avenue of Stars is a certain distance from the Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, there will be no crowds like the Tsim Sha Tsui Pier. If you want to take a quiet walk and enjoy the view of Victoria Harbor towards Hong Kong Island, it is also a good choice to go to the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui at night.

Sky 100 Observation Deck

There are many different ways to enjoy the view of Victoria Harbour. One of the options is to go to the top floor of Kowloon ICC, which is the observation deck on the tallest skyscraper in Kowloon. As long as you board the Sky 100 observation deck, you can have a bird's-eye view of the entire Kowloon and Hong Kong Island from a high altitude, and you can enjoy the most beautiful sunset.

If you have never been to the Sky 100 Observation Deck, we recommend that you set off one hour before sunset, so that you can fully appreciate the different scenery of Victoria Harbor during sunset.

West Kowloon Cultural District

The West Kowloon Cultural District is a place where art and exhibitions are gathered. Every month, exhibitions with different themes are held regularly. From music, dance, visual art, etc., you have the opportunity to experience different types of art. In addition, the West Kowloon Cultural District also has a large area of public activity space, which is also a good place for picnics and walks during holidays.

If you plan to spend a whole day in Kowloon, but do not plan any special itinerary, you can consider going to the M+ Museum, the Hong Kong Palace Museum to enjoy different types of exhibitions, and then go to the Art Park to enjoy the sunset of Victoria Harbour. I believe that such an itinerary does not require you to spend too much budget, but it can bring you a very fulfilling day.

Regal Ice Cream Truck

Perhaps for many tourists, one of the goals of coming to Tsim Sha Tsui must be to buy soft ice cream from the Regal Ice Cream Truck, and then take a photo with the most Hong Kong characteristics to share on social media.

However, Regal ice cream trucks do not have a designated parking place, nor do they have designated business hours. Even if we pass by the same place every day, sometimes we suddenly want to buy a stick of soft ice cream to eat, it doesn't necessarily mean that we can buy it casually.

If you want to meet the Regal Ice Cream Truck in Tsim Sha Tsui, you can go to Haiphong Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, K11 in Tsim Sha Tsui, Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, and Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui. It is easier to find the Regal Ice Cream Truck. Especially during the period from 15:00 to 19:00 in the afternoon, the chances of encountering Regal ice cream trucks are relatively high. However, sometimes due to different factors such as weather and inventory, the Regal Ice Cream Truck may close early.

Attractions suitable for in-depth travel in Tsim Sha Tsui

If you are also visiting Tsim Sha Tsui for the first time, I believe that the above attractions are enough to fill your whole day's itinerary. At the same time, you can also experience that Tsim Sha Tsui has history, culture, and satisfy your shopping, dining and other aspects. requirements.

However, if you are not coming to Tsim Sha Tsui for the first time, and you are looking for some special attractions and activities, I believe the following attractions will definitely meet your requirements. In addition, if you like photography, you must not miss this list of attractions.

Chungking Mansions

Don't think that Chungking Mansions is an ordinary residential building. In fact, it is a place where hotels, shops, restaurants, and foreign exchange shops are gathered. In Chungking Mansions, you can even meet people of different races and countries at the same time. If you want to find a landmark with the most international characteristics in Hong Kong, besides Lan Kwai Fong, Chungking Mansions should be your first choice.

The most interesting thing about Chungking Mansions is that as long as you don't mind the environment here, you can find many very cheap accommodation options. Compared with the nearby Sheraton Hotel, which costs HKD $2000 per night, you can find a standard bed at Chungking Mansions for only HKD $200, allowing you to rest for a night at a cheap price.

However, if you do not intend to stay in the hotel of Chungking Mansions, but just want to experience the environment of Chungking Mansions, you can go directly to visit different shops and restaurants. Basically, Chungking Mansions is open to anyone to enter. If you simply visit the shops in the ground floor, you should not have any major problems. But one thing to note is that when you walk into Chungking Mansions, you must respect people from different cultural backgrounds, so as to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings.

Haiphong Road Temporary Market

Starting from Chungking Mansions, it takes about 5 minutes to walk to the Haiphong Road Temporary Market.

The special feature of Haiphong Road Temporary Market is that it is a temporary market that has a history of more than 40 years but is still in operation. It is also one of the few markets located under the flyover. For you who come to Hong Kong for sightseeing from overseas, Haiphong Road Temporary Market is the easiest place for you to experience the daily life of Hong Kong people. Because in the Haiphong Road Temporary Market, you will find fresh meat stalls, flower shops, and authentic Hong Kong-style tea restaurants. If you also like to experience Hong Kong culture in depth, I believe this place can satisfy your many different wishes.

Signal Hill Gardens

For many Hong Kong people, they may not know the history of Signal Hill. However, Signal Hill, where the Royal Hong Kong Observatory used to tell the time to ships in Victoria Harbor, was once a very important place on the Kowloon Peninsula.

With the development of mobile technology, Signal Hill no longer needs to tell the time to ships in Victoria Harbour. Instead, it has become a Signal Hill Garden overlooking Victoria Harbour. Among them, the signal tower with a history of more than 100 years has become a declared monument.

Kowloon Mosque

Hong Kong is a place where different countries and cultures gather. So in addition to some common temples, such as Man Mo Temple and Che Kung Temple, you can also have the opportunity to encounter the all-white Kowloon Mosque in downtown Tsim Sha Tsui.

For ordinary Hong Kong people, the Kowloon Mosque is like other temples. Usually only believers go to the place, and ordinary people will not walk in casually. However, because of the all-white architectural design of the Kowloon Mosque, coupled with the blue sky and white clouds as the background, for those who like to take pictures, it will be one of the places worth paying attention to in the Tsim Sha Tsui area.

St. Andrew's Church

In addition to the Kowloon Mosque, just walk 5 minutes in the direction of Mong Kok, and you can find the entrance of St. Andrew's Church.

St. Andrew's Church is one of the churches in the West Kowloon Diocese of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui. It is characterized by a history of more than 100 years and is also a church that is still in operation.

Hong Kong Space Museum

I don't know if you have been to the Hong Kong Space Museum. To be honest, every time we pass by the Hong Kong Space Museum, we are unconsciously attracted by the circular building of the Hong Kong Space Museum.

If you want to find a building with the same shape as a pineapple bun in Hong Kong, I believe that apart from the Hong Kong Space Museum, there is no other building with the same design. The characteristics of the Hong Kong Space Museum, in addition to introducing general astronomical knowledge, there is also a space hall showing different scientific themes. When watching some videos related to the theme of astronomy, you will have the same experience as if you are in the scene.

For those who work on Hong Kong Island, they often go to the bars in Lan Kwai Fong in Central to drink after get off work.
