Hong Kong Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade

One of the most beautiful viewing points of the Hong Kong view is the observation deck located on the shores of the Tsim Sha Tsui district, overlooking the island. I buy a token from the Central Ferry Pier and jump on the Star Ferry (plastic blue tokens cost 4 HKD). In this short, five-minute journey, we leave the island behind and approach the mainland. The ferry is packed as always.

When you leave Tsim Sha Tsui Pier and walk, the clock tower you will see on your right and the distinctive yellow stone building behind it is the Hong Kong Cultural Center with its hall where world-famous artists perform concerts. Right behind it is the Space Museum, and next to it is the Hong Kong Clock Museum. There are many other museums in the Kawloon region, where Tsim Sha Tsui is located; one of them is M+, which opened at the end of 2021. This art museum, which focuses on visual culture, contemporary art, design, and architecture, is quite ambitious, so much so that, just as New York's Moma and Paris's Center Pompidou are famous, this museum has become one of Hong Kong's most avant-garde and avant-garde artists from the first moment it opened. It is a candidate to be one of the most popular places.

There is a viewing terrace in front of the concert hall, which can be accessed by stairs. I think coming to this terrace an hour before sunset and watching the evening lights with everyone else and watching the ferries and ships sailing between the two shores is one of the best activities to do in Hong Kong. The ironic Hong Kong skyline turns colorful with the sun's rays, tourist boats that start their evening tours set out towards the sea, and the city turns into a visual festival.
