I traveled to Hong Kong for five days and four nights in the end of November for the first time in five years. While there is a lot of scenery which has been unchanged, I find out something new whenever I visit Hong Kong. In this article, I will write about evening view in Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) as part of Day 1.

Evening View around Promenade
Following the previous post, I moved from Garden of Stars (星光花園) to the west side of Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. As I mentioned in the previous article, most of Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade including “Avenue of Stars” has been closed due to construction, but part of the west area is still open. To be more precise, pedestrians can still walk between Hong Kong Culture Center and Star Ferry Pier. View of buildings on the Hong Kong island side from Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade is one of the representative scenery in Hong Kong, so I will watch it.
When I arrived at the west side of promenade, the sun just went down and it was getting dark.
I walked around the area while I was thinking of where I would watch “Symphony of Lights” tonight.
There was an observation deck with benches near Star Ferry Pier. Considering most of the promenade has been closed, I guess lots of visitors would gather here to watch “Symphony of Lights”.

I came to “1881 Heritage”, which was located across Hong Kong Culture Center.
“1881 Heritage”, which used to be the Former Marine Police Headquarters, was opened in 2009 as a complex including hotel, shops and restaurants. Recently, it has gained attention as a famous selfie spot in Hong Kong.
This was my first visit to “1881 Heritage” and I found there were so many visitors who took photos.
Wonton Noodle at Chee Kei (池記)
Now I will have a dinner. I looked for a restaurant near Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and went into Chee Kei (池記) whose main cuisine was wonton noodle.
In the restaurant.
I ordered a shrimp wonton noodle set.
Night View in Tsim Sha Tsui
As I had some free time before “Symphony of Lights”, I walked around Tsim Sha Tsui. To begin with, around Nathan Road.
Other snaps around Nathan Road.
I moved to Canton Road, which was located on the west of Nathan Road. Canton Road is one of the famous shopping districts in Hong Kong.
I visited “1881 Heritage” again.
I moved to the promenade to watch “Symphony of Lights” and took a photo of “Clock Tower” on the way to the promenade.
“Symphony of Lights” started.
“Symphony of Lights” is held at 8 p.m. for 15 minutes every night.
After “Symphony of Lights”, I walked around the promenade. This was “Aqua Luna”, a cruise ship.
Near Hong Kong Culture Center.
Last but not least, I will took photos around the Peninsula Hong Kong.
I found night view at the Peninsula Hong Kong was attractive.
Then, I returned to the hotel (“YMCA of Hong Kong”) where I stayed and the first day of my Hong Kong trip was over.
That’s it for the article about evening view in Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) as part of Day 1 of my Hong Kong trip.
There were many spots in Tsim Sha Tsui suitable for evening and night photo shooting such as “Symphony of Lights” and “1881 Heritage”, so I would recommend you visit there 🙂
In the next article, I will write about Hong Kong University (HKU) and Kennedy Town as part of Day 2.
