Kowloon Sightseeing – with Wired Destinations


Most traditionalists start their trip at Kowloon's Tsim Sha Tsui at the Star Ferry Pier, where the Star Ferry makes a crossing from Victoria Harbor to Central. An outstanding landmark nearby is the Railway Clock Tower, a final vestige of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Station. This 44-meter-high tower build out of red bricks and granite is located very close to the Victoria Harbor and the Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier.
Behind the tower is the Hong Kong Cultural Center, which is a complex used in many Hong Kong festivals. It also houses the Hong Kong Space Museum, with daily showings of movies on space travel and other exhibitions of Chinese astronomical discovery. The Hong Kong Museum of Art at Salisbury Road showcases traditional and contemporary Hong Kong calligraphy and painting, along with historic prints, antiques and artifacts of Hong Kong and China.

North of the Space Museum is the Teddy Bear Kingdom. The place provides a full display of teddy bears from around the world. The world's smallest teddy bear and the most expensive one can be found here. Visitors also have a chance to buy clothes and accessories to dress their own bear with only a small charge.

North of the Star Ferry Pier is the Star House on Canton Road, which should be next on your Kowloon sightseeing list. This is where some of the best Chinese handicraft are found and purchased. Adjoining Star House is the Mammoth Harbor City Complex, encompassing Ocean Terminal and Ocean Center, also the area is filled with Kowloon hotels, antique shops and designer boutiques.

From the Star Ferry Pier, there is a waterfront promenade which extends past the Cultural Center towards Tsim Sha Tsui East and Hung Horn Bay. Hung Horn Bay is a stretch of land packed with Kowloon hotels and Kowloon shopping venues and provides a great spots for one of the most fascinating views of the cityscapes. Whampoa Garden is located behind Hung Hom Ferry Pier. It is a commercial district built around the old Kowloon Dockyard. The dock now houses numerous shops, restaurants and gardens.

Han Wong Temple in Tung Shung is a well known place that is dedicated to Yan Liang Jie, a loyal official and courageous general of the Song dynasty's emperor Ping. Though it is not declared a monument, the temple is still commonly worshiped by the Chinese people. Past Kowloon City Plaza on the left you’ll find Kowloon City Walled Park. This beautiful park features a chess garden and a mountain view pavilion. Two cannons and a stone couplet from Longjin School are displayed outside.

The Kowloon Waterfront on the southern tip of west Kowloon with the entrance at Nga Cheung Road, Tsim Sha Tsui offers spectacular views of Hong Kong shoreline and skyline. From the Waterfront, travelers can take the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island and appreciate the excellent view of the Kowloon skyline.

The Shek Kip Mei Estate is the place to appreciate the historical buildings of Hong Kong during the 50s – 60s. There are some blocks of buildings that were built in the 1950s and residents are still living in them. To get there, take the MTR to Shek Kip Mei station and enjoy a short walk to the buildings.
