Happy Holidaying in Hong Kong-East Sim Sha Tsui
Walk of Stars Hong Kong
East Sim Sha Tsui is a great place to visit when in Hong Kong.
Go to the walk of stars and you will find a statute of Bruce Lee and many other famous Hong Kong actors and singers. Old fogies like me, in our fifties and above will remember Bruce Lee for the Green Hornet series. He is also the first one to make martial arts films popular in North America, remember “Enter the Dragon”.
You will find the Hong Kong Space museum there. It is worth a look..I'm not much for art but the Hong Kong Art museum is in the same area. Just follow the signs .It's easy to find.
I stay at a youth hostel in the Mirador Mansion. There are many there. I prefer Pearl Hostel. The rooms are very small. You would swear you could fart from one end of the room to the other. There is just a bed, air conditioner, shower, toilet and t.v.. But hey I go to get a new visa and see the sights .The rooms are very reasonable at 150 Hong Kong Dollars per night.
I go to Forever Bright for a visa. Most foreigners do. They speak excellent English and provide quick service. Usually the same day ,at a reasonable price.They are at New Mandarin Plaza
A walk along Nathan Road is quite the experience .You will see many Pakistanis trying to sell you suits that can be made in an hour, rent you rooms and sell you just about anything you can imagine, fake of course.
There is a great little park there called Kowloon Park .In it you will find the Health Building..It is great .It explains about health and sanitation, but there are many interactive displays that are great fun.
As you stroll through the park in the early morning you will find many seniors practicing Tia Chi .Feel free to join in. Hong Kong people are great. They are very friendly and helpful. Go and see the totem pole Canada donated to Hong Kong.
There are many quaint little restaurants where you can get a meal at an outdoor patio at The New Mandarin Plaza at reasonable prices.
If you are a smoker be careful to watch where you smoke. Hong Kong is very strict with its anti smoking policy. As well don't go throwing your rubbish on the ground. Hong Kong is very clean and they enforce the littering policy as well.
I pray you found this article helpful and you enjoy your time in Hong Kong.
See you there.
