Best things to do in Tsim Sha Tsui and sightseeing in Tsim Sha Tsui
A Symphony of Lights - Tsim Sha Tsui
First, I wanted to take a walk to the only place I really knew on the Kowloon side, the Avenue of the Stars. Similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hong Kong version immortalizes Chinese film stars like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. Normally, it’s a lovely walk along the water with picture-perfect views of Victoria Harbor but today it was overcast, chilly and windy enough to sweep an unattended child right into the harbor.I couldn't miss the Symphony of Lights show over Hong Kong harbor that starts every night at 8:00pm. Many of the skyscrapers along the water are outfitted with multicolored laser/strobe lights and the whole show is set to music. It was what I remembered most about my last visit to Hong Kong and I wanted to be sure we didn’t miss it. Since it was freezing outside by the water (where most people watch the show) and our room had a panoramic view of the harbor, we decided to watch from there. It was a great call because I never realized that the show involved so many lights on top of the buildings on the Kowloon side of the harbor. You can’t really appreciate that from the water’s edge but you sure can from the 23rd floor of the Sheraton! It was an awesome 18-minute show and when it was over it was time to venture out to find a good spot for dinner.
香港尖沙咀糖朝 - Tsim Sha Tsui
After lunch and some shopping at Harbour city and Silvercord, grabbed some leg rest and some dessert. 糖朝 sweet dynasty 28 Hankow Rd, Kowloon City The last time I was here was way back on my first HK trip. Wasn't fantastic though. Had sesame past with beancurd while NB had that with walnut paste instead. Damage: HKD30 per bowl Rating: 7.5/10 perhaps their other dishes like dim sum or meals are better!
FINDS - Tsim Sha Tsui
The bar at the restaurant FINDS – an acronym for the Nordic countries of Finland, Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden – has been a perennial hit with the Central cocktail set since it opened in 2004. Scandinavian small plates (called ‘scapas’) can be had with an otherwise not very Scandinavian drinks list – Swedish vodka, in cocktails or with mixers, is the exception. A terrace overlooks the revelers spilling out of the street-level bars below.
Bahama Mama’s Caribbean Bar - Tsim Sha Tsui
In existence for over a decade (almost a miracle in fickle Hong Kong), Bahama Mama’s was one of the first on the now-thriving scene of Knutsford Terrace. It’s an odd place – a mix of faux foliage, table football and dance music – but with a terrace out front it keeps pulling in the punters.
