Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade in Hong Kong Guide:
One of the most popular tourist sections of Hong Kong, the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade is where you can find the best of backpacker hostels, five-star luxurious retreats, extensive shopping venues, eclectic dining and the majority of Hong Kong’s museums and art galleries. A scenic waterfront that opens up to breathtaking vistas of the famous Hong Kong skyline adds to the magic, making the promenade nothing short of a slice of paradise for all those keen on experiencing Hong Kong at its hottest.
Walk down the Avenue of the Stars, a Hong Kong version of the Hollywood Avenue of the Stars and a tribute to the stars of Hong Kong movies who made the city popular worldover with their excellent performances and dynamic personalities. Check out the magnificence of the Clock Tower and immerse yourself in a dynamic theatre, ballet or concert at the iconic Hong Kong Cultural Centre. You can also join a guided tour for a behind-the-scenes experience.
If it is the star-strewn skies and the world beyond that fascinate you the most, then do not miss a visit to the Hong Kong Space Museum. Art buffs can explore the Hong Kong Museum of Art and acquaint themselves with masterpieces of Chinese origins from across the ages. You can catch the enigmatic Dragon Boat Race in June and watch the skies high above come alive with stunning firework displays during the Chinese New Year celebrations in January/early February.
A major year-round highlight of the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade is the Symphony of Lights, the Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show in the world with a cast of 45 buildings on both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. The show takes spectators on a unique journey celebrating the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong.
