Destination: Hong Kong

Friday, December 14th, 2007

I recommend staying in Tsim Sha Tsui, get a harbour view room, ride the ferry, walk the length of Nathan Road, which takes you from Tsim Sha Tsui to Yaumatei to Mongkok. The best view of Hong Kong’s floodlit skyscrapers at night is behind the Cultural Centre next to the Star Ferry in Tsim Sha Tsui. You can also stroll down the Tsim Sha Tsui East promenade, which starts at the Avenue of Stars near the Space Museum with the round dome. The Avenue of Stars, one of Hong Kong’s newest attractions, imitates Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre. You can check out Jacky Chan’s hand prints there. At 8pm every night, go to the Ave of Stars and you’ll see a multimedia light and sound show on the waterfront, with pyrotechnics thrown in during holidays.

The Art Museum and History Museum are in Tsim Sha Tsui too. If you’re lucky, you can see the occasional sampan (Chinese fishing boats with a huge brown coarse sail) drifting on the harbour. If not, go see the replicas in the History Museum. But nothing beats the Heritage Museum whose exterior replicates ancient Chinese architecture, truly striking (1 Man Lam Road, Shatin, at the outskirts in the New Territories). The bar scene is in Lan Kwai Fong, which has trendy bars and restaurants, on Hong Kong side.
