Aside from the Avenue of Stars that was mentioned in the previous post, the Tsim Tsai Tsui Promenade (the official name of the area) offers impressive views of the city’s skyline day or night. I didn’t get a chance to see the Symphony of Lights at night but I think with a little imagination it would not be difficult to see the beauty of how it all looks like.

In addition to spectacular views, there is the Clock Tower in the area which has been declared to be a heritage landmark. The Clock Tower built in the 1900s is the only  remaining evidence of the former Kowloon Station of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. Today, it serves as a poignant reminder of the Chinese migrants who arrived at the train station to begin their new lives in Hong Kong.
