Tsim Sha Tsui : the Paradise of Shoppers
Hong Kong is one of the develop country in Asia. I feel familiar with Hong Kong because of Hong Kong movie series on tvshow. My flight land at HKG at 5 30 pm. I am feel really impress with transport and easy to connect with city centre with express train and bus transfer. I arrive at the evening at TsimShashui.
Tsim Sha Tsui known as ‘the paradise of shoppers’, Hong Kong is famous for its fast developing economy is a giant world marketplace, where Hong Kong’s glittering harbour is met by an alternate sea of stalls, shops, markets and malls. Visiting this modern metropolis, I feel its vibrancy and have a good understanding of the local culture. In Hong Kong, there are many prosperous areas, and among them, Tsim Sha Tsui, located in the south of Kowloon Peninsula, is one of the most famous.
As one sentence describes, Tsim Sha Tsui is a concentration of stores, shopping malls, restaurants and office buildings. Whenever you walk in the street, you will be confronted by heavy traffic and the crowd of citizens and visitors. But everything is very orderly. Tsim Sha Tsui’s shopping also extends beyond these two roads. To the east is Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and next to empire centre, which invite me to rest those protesting feet for a while at a harbour-side alfresco bar and restaurant strip.
Nathan Road is the leading road of Tsim Sha Tsui. Meanwhile, other streets radiate from there. Many international brands are grouped in those streets. Especially, the Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard which is intended for shopping, and young people like to roam there to buy some fashionable clothes. Taking a stroll along Nathan Road and the streets crossing it is an experience worthy of attention. Here my journey past Bollywood-themed memorabilia, Shanghainese tailors, sweet-talking restaurant touts, gorgeous gems and jewellery, flashy cameras, international brand name stores and Asian street label boutiques. You can also escape the hustle and bustle of what’s called ‘the golden mile’ by slipping into a number of spacious and plush malls, including iSQUARE, The One and K11.
For those visitors who like to buy cosmetics, going to the cosmetic stores in Granville Road and Harbor City will bring them more surprise. Take a short walk over to Canton Road where I confronted with the best the world has to offer in luxury designer goods, not to mention Hong Kong’s biggest shopping mall – the enormous Harbour City and 1881 Heritage, a unique experience that blends history with luxury shopping.
Also you can have a full vision of the Victory Bay in this area, and the recommended attractions are the Avenue of Stars and Tsim Sha Tsui Beach. The Avenue of Stars was designed according to the one built in American Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. The list of honored stars of Hong Long was inlaid into the surface of avenue. The Tsim Sha Tsui Beach seems more charming in the evening. Varied neon lights mingle together to make the night become another colorful world.
Tsim Sha Tsui’s clock tower houses the original clock from the former site of the Tsim Sha Tsui Train Station. Just next to the Star Ferry Pier, within the grounds of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and harbour promenade. It is another popular and romantic meeting spot after the 5 Flag-Post Forecourt at Ocean Terminal.
Additionally, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Space Museum and cultural centre lie here. All those things make Tsim Sha Tsui be an area of entertainment, shopping and education. So the visitors to go to Hong Kong should not miss visiting here.
Steamed dumplings, steamed stuffed buns, cakes, soup, seafood dishes, etc.
