Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is one of the best places to view one of the most stunning skylines in the world, the Hong Kong skyline. Here you can view Victoria Harbour and almost all iconic skyscrapers of Hong Kong.

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade during events and festivals

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is the most crowded during special events and festivals like Dragon Boat Carnival, Lantern Festival, and the Christmas when various buildings are dressed up in Christmas light and decorations. It is also one of the best locations in town to view the firework display over Victoria Harbour during the Chinese New Year. What’s more? You can enjoy A Symphony of Lights every night, the spectacular light and sound show involving over 40 buildings on both sides of the Harbour.

Where is Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade

Actually, Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is right next to the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui. You can see Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Clock Tower, just head that way. The Clock Tower was originally part of the old Tsim Sha Tsui railway terminal of the former Kowloon-Canton Railway. Established in 1916, it is now a declared monument in Hong Kong. There you can get to the observation deck above the Kowloon public pier to capture some of the best views of Victoria Harbour, just follow the stairs. There are other attractions like Hong Kong Space Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Avenue of Stars (temporarily closed for major renovations until the end of 2016 for the first one and that of 2018 for the latter ones) and the Art Square at Salisbury Garden. Although this area is under transformation, it does not affect you to view the stunning Victoria Harbour.

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade has a total length of about 1.7 kilometers and it is built parallel to Salisbury Road. If you have time to walk along the Road, you can get to the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade where you can find some restaurants and bars across the road. The Hong Kong Coliseum and the Hong Hum Railway Station will appear in front of you if you walk further. You can even take a stroll along the newly opened Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade Extension and Hong Hom Promenade that ends at Hong Hom Ferry Piers via the pedestrian access of the Hung Hom Bypass.
