Travel 2017: Hong Kong - Kowloon, Hong Kong

0 Comments
Day 3. Hong Kong - Macau solo backpacking trip.

A walkathon around the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok and Prince Edward.

How to get there?
Of course, there is always MTR for everywhere you wanna go in Hong Kong. But this time, I tried a different mode of transportation which is the ferry. From Central MTR station, Exit A, I just walked in the long overpass to the Central Ferry Pier.
The fare is just 2.50HKD to Tsim Sha Tsui. Just a cheap cost but you will definitely enjoy the 15-minute ride because of the view.

Where to go?
Having no definite itinerary for this day, I just go where my feet wanted to take me. So here are some of the places/tourist destinations I've explored the whole day.
THE CLOCK TOWER
This 44-meter Clock Tower is a famous landmark in Hong Kong. It was part of an old railway terminal station. Despite the terminus being gone, the tower is still standing strong and it is now preserved as one of HK's Declared Monument.

KOWLOON PARK
Kowloon Park is just adjacent to TST Station, Exit A1. It is a big public park offering a wide variety of flora and fauna. I really recommend you to take some of your time to just walk around and appreciate the tranquility of the place.

STREET MARKETS
One thing why Hong Kong is popular for travelers is because of SHOPPING! If you are looking for affordable shopping, don't forget to visit the street markets of Hong Kong. Here are some of them:
  • Fa Yuen Street AKA Sneaker Street - Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! Everywhere!
  • Tung Choi Street AKA Ladies Market - Clothes and accessories on sale!
  • Temple Street - foodtrip and bazaar in one!

FLOWER MARKET
Located at the Flower Market Road (obviously!) near Prince Edward Station. I was surprised by the wide variety of fresh cut flowers and houseplants being offered by the stalls along this street. Beautiful and colorful!


Happy walking!
