Sightseeing around Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsimshatsui is full of the most amazing sights, a range of tourist sights mean that a full Hong Kong experience can be had even without leaving the district. Being part of the original British territory of Hong Kong it contains a number of interesting colonial items including historic buildings and parks.
However it is the boom period of the 1950s and 60s which lead to the most rapid development of the area and cemented its reputation as a tourist destination for world travellers. Today the steady addition of new sightseeing attractions continues with everything from world-class museums to open public walkways with outstanding views.
