Hong Kong Cultural Center
Tsim Sha Tsui

Above: Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Built on the site of the old Kowloon terminus of the Kowloon-Canton Railway, the Hong Kong Cultural Center is at the promenade near the southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon. It has a concert hall, theatres, and exhibition areas.

In the vicinity are also the Space Museum, the Museum of Art, the century old Tsim Sha Tsui clock tower, and the Avenue of Stars.

There's also a restaurant from which you can watch the ships go by in the harbor while you enjoy a dim sum lunch. Or if you just want to sit around and enjoy the breeze and the view, you can sit on the steps facing the Hong Kong Island.

To get to the Hong Kong Cultural Center, take the MTR to the Tsim Sha Tsui station. Take exit E and once you are above ground, walk south till Salisbury Road. You'll see it across the road in front. You can either take the tunnel to cross the road or loop around by going right till the Star Ferry pier.
