Kowloon’s the Gateway

The Victoria harbor views from the banks of Kowloon are impressive, if not legendary. Hong Kong lies before you and the urban sprawl brags skyscraper gems such as the Citibank and the IFC buildings. Add to the mix, some Chinese junks (they are for tourists nowadays) and the cruise ships, and the urban dreamscape becomes complete.

In Kowloon, a renowned kick-ass vantage point is the Gateway in Tsim Sha Tsui. Part of Harbour City, the Gateway has hotels, the Ocean Terminal, office buildings and a classy shopping mall. Located in the west side of Canton Road, it makes you realize that Hong Kong, without a doubt, is a class of its own.
