Known as one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui is so much more than just a shopping haven and The Mira Hong Kong is your perfect base for exploring
From the antique and arts district of Sheung Wan to the stilted fishing village of Tai O, every single district in Hong Kong has its own unique feel. And one of the most dynamic, bustling and exciting parts of the city, for locals and tourists alike, is undoubtedly Tsim Sha Tsui (or TST, as it’s known). Explore some of the best parts of the vibrant shopping and cultural neighbourhood when you stay at The Mira Hong Kong, and then indulge in your own urban retreat when you need a little me-time.
Things to do in Tsim Sha Tsui
Visit the Clock Tower and Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade
By day or by night, Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade offers magnificent views of Hong Kong Island and the quintessential picture-postcard skyline that the city is known for. During the day, you can take in the beautiful colonial-era Clock Tower, a relic of the former Kowloon-Canton Railway Terminus, while at night, you can watch as the buildings come to life thanks to the Symphony of Lights show. This is definitely the perfect spot for grabbing the best Instagram moments for selfies too!
Take a ride on the Star Ferry
You haven’t explored Hong Kong until you’ve been on the Star Ferry! Running between Tsim Sha Tsui and Hong Kong Island, it’s one of the most romantic ways to take in the journey, as junk boats and yachts sail past you. If you time it just right, you can even catch a sailing that crosses during the light show, meaning you can see the lights on both sides of the harbour.
Eat all the street food!
In-between all the exploring, you’ll definitely want to try out the wonderful snacks that Hong Kong is renowned for. Devour moorish egg waffles, enjoy curry fish balls and siu mai or hunt down some tasty Taiwanese bubble tea to give you the energy you need to keep shopping.
Explore Kowloon Park
From the Hong Kong Avenue of Comic Stars to the Maze Garden and the Aviary that features an array of wonderful birds, including flamingoes, you could spend a whole day at Kowloon Park. Be sure to find the heart-shaped tree, explore the Chinese Garden, or take a wander during the evening when many people use the park to practice tai chi.
Relax at The Mira Hong Kong
The Mira Hong Kong makes the perfect base for exploring Tsim Sha Tsui and the entire city, thanks to its central location and bespoke amenities. Luxuriate in the swimming pool, before spending some time in the stunning Jacuzzi, or detox at the juice bar and enjoy a signature treatment at MiraSpa.
