InterContinental Hong Kong hotel

Tsim Sha Tsui district

When it comes to harbor view, the InterContinental Hong Kong hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui is in the prime spot. Located right on the water with the promenade directly in front, it has completely unobstructed view of the world-renowned Hong Kong Island skyline.

In addition to the view, since it's in Tsim Sha Tsui, a popular tourist and shopping area, there's plenty to see - often within walking distance of 10 or 15 minutes, like the century old Tsim Sha Tsui clock tower, the Star Ferry pier, the Ocean Terminal, Cultural Center, 1881 Heritage, and the Harbour City shopping mall.

Getting to other popular areas like Mongkok, Central, or Causeway Bay is also convenient. It's just a short MTR (subway) or Star Ferry ride of at most 20 minutes.

Another bonus of this hotel would be the view of firework display on special occasions like New Year's Eve, Chinese National Day (October 1), and maybe also Chinese New Year (there usually is one on the second night of Chinese New Year). A harbor view room on those nights will get you the premium seat, but of course the bill will also reflect the luxury of not having to battle with the crowds below!


But since it is right at the waterfront, beware that during major holidays like New Year's Eve when there're fireworks over the harbor, Salisbury road is closed off to automobile traffic and literally tens of thousands of people gather to watch right around the hotel. (2012.2)
