However, it also contains a diverse range of attractions for the entire family. Whether taking a walk in Kowloon Park, exploring museums, going shopping or grabbing a bite to eat – Tsim Sha Tsui has something for everyone.

Gallery at the Harbour (art space) at Harbour City
Jun 2020
One of the interesting places to visit at Harbour City shopping mall in TST is the Gallery by the Harbour, a small second floor space used for art display and exhibitions. This is a single room hall with space to exhibition 15-20 works.

Presently, The Gallery is showcasing the 2019 Hong Kong Photo contest sponsored by National Geographic Wheelock. Photos displayed present various landscapes, society & cultural scenes around the city and are of very good quality. The exhibition is small so a 10 minute visit to see the present exhibition is sufficient, something well worth allowing time for if you enjoy the arts and plan to be at Harbour City in the near future.

A mall as grand as a harbour
Aug 2019
One of the larger malls in Hong Kong, if not the largest. You can stroll around all day long and enjoy The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. The Star Ferry stop is located in front of the shopping mall.

HK's largest mall, presently devoid of crowds
Mar 2020
Harbour City is a huge collective shopping space occupying the lower level floors of several large buildings along Canton Road between the China Hong Kong City building and the Star Ferry Pier. It includes 2 million sq. feet of shop space sprawling through the Ocean Terminal, Ocean Center and Gateway Arcade. Opening hours are around 10am to 10pm daily.

This mall is massive and takes hours simply to walk the full floor space. There are around 450 retail shops, 70+ restaurants and eateries, an art gallery, observation deck and two hotels. It is also directly connected to the cruise terminal.

In recent years, Harbour City has become a favourite venue for mainland Chinese shoppers. At times walking the halls of the mall has felt daunting due very crowded conditions often found here. However, at present as the city deals with the Coronavirus outbreak and the lack of tourists in the city, Harbour City is rather quiet, making for much more relaxed visits and shopping for local Hong Kongers.

Worth note that Harbour City regularly decorates the mall front facing the Star Ferry Pier with interesting seasonal and holiday decorations. More decor is usually found within the mall interior but out in front of the Star Ferry Pier is where you find the best. Related, presently, there are several works by the French urban artist Invader scattered around the Harbour City properties. Just keep your eyes peeled for his signature pixelated video game characters (ie Pacman and Space Invader) found inside and outside the mall.

Note: You'll find a list of the businesses with shops and restaurants at Harbour City on their website.

Jan 2020 • Couples
In this shopping mall you have a feeling of kind of being on a ship with water views outside the picture windows.otherwise a fairly pleasant and large mall with emphasis on high end. A bit hard to navigate around. Poor signage.for some strange reasons men's and women's toilets located in completely different different wings of the floor. If a couple uses the restrooms at the same time good luck trying to reunite in the narrow hallways going in all directions.

What a great city!
Dec 2019
Hong Kong is such a great place to visit. Harbour City is so cool. The boats are everywhere and the ferry is the best. The food and sites and people are the BEST! There is so much shopping and markets to shop at. The food is fantastic. I can't wait to go again.

Chaotic Place
Oct 2019 • Solo
I wo only go back for a specific shop or restaurant, wouldn’t just try to walk around in a casual manner. Lot of construction surrounding and that might have added to the confusion of dealing with crowds etc.

Amazing shopping mall
Oct 2019
This is a huge shopping centre but very difficult to navigate your way around.
Good combination of shops - although mostly high end. Very expensive.

Nice shopping centre
Sep 2019 • Couples
Harbour city was a lovely shopping mall. Very big and lots of designer shops in it. The cruise ships actually stop here.
It’s a struggle for a Coeliac to find a restaurant serving gluten free food there though.
