Tsim Sha Tsui is a part of Yau Tsim Mong District, located in the southern Kowloon Peninsula. It is separated by Victoria Harbor with the Central of HK Island and Wan Chai. Geographically speaking, Tsim Sha Tsui is a cape of the north Kowloon Peninsula and is adjacent to Harbor Plaza. Before removing mountains and filling up seas, the seawater near this area was hindered by Kwun Chung Mountain, which formed a long beach with an apex. The original coastal line of Tsim Sha Tsim was along Salisbury Road and Chatham Road. Within the two areas, there are two parallel capes - Kowloon Point and Blackhead Point. Between these two capes is a small bay. After many times that the sea was filled, Tsim Sha Tsui expanded. Today, it is still a highly-developed shopping area and is considered as the heart of Hong Kong.

Shopping and Tourism

In the daytime, the restaurants on either side of Nathan Road and many international boutiques are crowded with tourists. At night, the colorful lighting of Avenue of Star is the most eye-catching scene in HK. The shops hidden on the streets and lanes alongside Nathan Road make it an ideal place for tourists to buy souvenirs and delicious foods.
