For club-goers, Tsim Sha Tsui East boasts nightclubs and karaoke bars too. Those staying at a Tsim Sha Tsui family hotel can also catch the awe-inspiring “A Symphony of Lights” at 8:00 pm; from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, witness iconic buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour come alive in a dazzling display of light and sound.
