Most probably, the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade in Hong Kong is one of the finest city skylines in the world, offering great uninterrupted views of the city’s surroundings. This stretch of public area officially starts at the New World Centre to the Hong Kong Coliseum and the Hung Hom train station. It is a beautiful place to have a walk during the day and even becomes better during the evenings, with its nightly spectacular sound and light show that involves numerous buildings on Hong Kong Island’s skyline.
