One of the greatest attractions in traveling to Hong Kong is the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade situated on the coastline of Tsim Sha Tsui from the colonial Clock Tower near Star Ferry Pier, passing by Hong Kong Museum of Art, Avenue of Stars, up to the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade Extension near the Hung Hom Promenade . It is the best place to stroll and hang out day and night. There are various five star hotels in the area like InterContinental Hong Kong,  Kowloon Shangri-La , InterContinental Grand Stanford, and much more that you can stay. Several lodging and guest houses registered by the government can be found in nearby places for people traveling on a minimal budget.

The Avenue of Stars, a must-see place,  is built to pay homage to Hong Kong film Industry, stars that includes the legendary Bruce Lee, and movie directors with hand prints sculpted, sculpture of artists and information board. The avenue is also a great place to position in watching fireworks display especially during Chinese New Year or any occasion and  festival celebrated with fireworks.

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade offers not only just coastal view but a rich historical background from old Hong Kong to modern times. The 44 meters Clock Tower was erected in 1915 as part of Kowloon-Canton Railways (KCR) Terminus and with modern development of the area and infrastructure, the bustling terminus was gone with only the Clock Tower remain and preserved as Declared Monument. A viewing deck along the coastline offers seat that you can watch water ferries and other water transport vehicles traveling in and out of Kowloon and Central. On the other side of the coast, you can see the Hong Kong Convention Center in Wan Chai and other remarkable buildings of Central District including the International Finance Centre Tower and other hotels. Night time offers you more beautiful sights watching the different colors of neon lights that bring the whole city to life.

Taking an MTR is the fastest and easiest way to get to the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. From Tsim Sha Tsui station exit E, walk towards Salisbury Road then turn right and take a pedestrian tunnel next to the YMCA to Hong Kong Cultural Center. On the right side of   the Cultural Center you can find the old Clock Tower and few meters from the tower is Star Ferry Pier, the cheaper way of traveling from Kowloon to Central. Buses are also available but it takes a longer time from point of origin to the promenade but you will never regret taking a bus as it offers great journey and sight-seeing along the way. You will never get lost as buses are numbered and on every station and stops route map are displayed. Just remember to have coins or octopus card ready as buses provide no change. The fun and excitement will be immeasurable and will stick to your memory for life in visiting Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.
