Why Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is special ?
One of the finest city skylines in the world has to be that of Hong Kong Island, and the promenade here is one of the best ways to get an uninterrupted view. It’s a lovely place to stroll around during the day, but it really comes into its own in the evening, during the nightly Symphony of Lights , a spectacular sound-and-light show involving 44 buildings on the Hong Kong Island skyline. The new Deck ‘n Beer bar located here is a great spot to have an alfresco, waterside drink (weather permitting). Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, extending from Kowloon’s colonial Clock Tower to Hung Hom, is the best place in the city to gaze at the colors and lights of the spectacular Hong Kong Island skyline set in front of a backdrop of green hills.
What to explore at Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade?
During the day, the promenade fills up with joggers, tourists, young couples and the occasional fisherman. After strolling the boardwalk, stop in for a waterside drink at one of the area’s many bars and restaurants. Walking along the promenade will put you at the doorsteps of attractions like the Hong Kong Space Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Avenue of Stars.
If you plan to come in the evenings for the light and laser show across Victoria Harbour, make sure to show up at least an hour early to stake a front row spot.

Tips for you
Enjoy the night view of Victoria Harbour! Awesome!!
The view is absolutely gorgeous!
Make sure to check Bruce Lee statue.
I came here on 24th Dec and I came twice as this place is too beautiful for us. We came at 5pm and walk until 7pm which is very nice walk and very beautiful views. Then another time I came at night 10pm to see this place before we came back to our country. THIS PLACE IS A MUST VISIT if you are in Hongkong. Unfortunately to take a pictures is quite difficult as this place is very crowded on holiday season. Also many policemen started putting police line because it's Christmas Eve. One thing that I don't recommend from this place is THE CUTTLEFISH that they sell near Bruce Lee statue. It's hard, bad, although smell good. After had that, I had terrible sore throat for many days.
Great place to watch the Symphony of Lights from. We stayed at Austin Road, TST ( BP International hotel ) and the walk down the Nathan Road to TST Promenade on Christmas evening was spell binding . A must see for any visit to HK .
Early morning - this is a great place to walk / jog.Take pictures with Bruce Lee (statue!). Get photos of the HK island skyline. Watch the locals do Tai Chi. Watch the boats go across. Great for families and kids!
Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade starts at the (Kowloon-Canton Railway) Clock Tower stretching towards Hung Hom along the Victoria Harbour. Go there for early morning walk, jog, sit, or people watch as the sun rises in the east. Along its length can be seen the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Hong Kong Space Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Avenue of Stars. At night time, the promenade provides a romantic vista of Victoria Harbour and beyond. Many people troop there before 8pm to watch the Symphony of Light show and the Christmas lighting every December. But be it day or night, like most of the love birds and shutterbugs on the promenade, your attention will be drawn to the breathtaking topographical and architectural views of the busy Victoria Harbour and the skylines of Central Hong Kong Island across the channel. Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is accessible through MTR Tsim Sha Tsui Station Exit E. Walk towards Salisbury Road then turn right, take the pedestrian tunnel next to YWCA to Hong Kong Cultural Centre, then walk to the Star Ferry Pier. Take the Star Ferry from Central or Wan Chai. The Promenade is next to the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui
