Sights and Bites in Kowloon

Fun Across the Harbour

Hong Kong nightlife offers an attractive prospect to both locals and tourists. After seeing the spectacular light and sound show ‘A Symphony of Lights’ at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, you can hit the bars at Knutsford Terrace or Observatory Court with your friends. For those who have visited the Temple Street Night Market in Yau Ma Tei, you might want to try the claypot hot-pot rice at an open-air food stall.
