About Kowloon City
A walk down the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, the clock tower and the avenue of stars is enjoyable especially if the weather is nice and breezy. Unless you are a Chinese movie buff, you will probably not recognise half the stars, though. The symphony of sounds in my opinion is a let-down. It doesn’t live up to its hype at all. For a city which is so glitzy and forever lit up (so much so you can never see a dark sky), the light show was below average. I have seen better light shows in India (Mysore, Brindavan gardens) and Singapore, Sentosa. When in Kowloon, don’t miss the various local, authentic restaurants, like Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialists, Mong kok. They have a huge variety of dimsums and are teeming with patrons all the time. And get yourself a tailor-made suit from Raja tailors (again, something I have reserved for the next time), who is really popular and apparently does a great job with the cuts and fitting.

Harbour Plaza Metropolis
This hotel is placed overlooking the famous skyline of Hong Kong and is excellent in terms of the variety of cuisines it offers to everyone. It is a three star luxury hotel but definitely a value for money. Our three days spent in this hotel were an absolute bliss. The hotel provides a shuttle bus which is free for all the people staying there and goes around Tsim Sha Sui and The Harbour. The breakfast is a lavish multi- culinary spread and you will be lost in a food coma. They also have a mini mall within the hotel for those shopaholics. Overall it is budget friendly, has a gorgeous view and a food haven.
