In between Hong Kong Island
and New Territories, is the Kowloon Peninsula. It is also an important part of the bustling city where you will plant your feet for a stay at one of our vacation rentals or lodging. Its districts like Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok are the most attractive, they contain all the shopping, eating, entertainment and cultural attractions, highly comparable to Hong Kong Island!
However, compared to Hong Kong Island, Kowloon architecturally has a much lower skyline.
Owner Direct Vacation Rentals offers you condo rentals
and other accommodations, all over the world. Minutes from your Kowloon vacation rental you will find world class shops, restaurants, pubs and a promenade for strolling as you view Victoria Harbor. It is one big melting pot of streets crawling with shops and tourists, covered up under a spell of neon at night. The liveliest night market in the territory is on Temple St in Yau Ma Tei. The Promenade, in East Tsim Sha Tsui, is a great place for a stroll, and has wonderful views of Victoria Harbour, particularly at night. The name Kowloon came from the nine dragons represented by eight peaks and a Chinese emperor. Other spellings include Kauloong.
Large-scale development of Kowloon began in the early 20th century, with the construction of the Kowloon-Canton Railway and the Kowloon Wharf. People can use the ferry system to move to and from their Kowloon accommodations. There are various taxi-cabs that will facilitate the travel of tourists on land. Any Kowloon Travel guide needs to include transportation information.
A Symphony of Lights
is a synchronised building exterior decorative light and laser multimedia display, featuring 44 buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbour of Hong Kong, accompanied by music.. The show has been given an award by Guinness World Records as the world's largest permanent light and sound show and it is a tribute to the beauty and the innovation of the Victoria Harbor. The Kowloon Waterfront offers splendid views of the Hong Kong island shore and skyline. Your condo rental accommodation is the best place to experience the classic view of Hong Kong, and nobody on their first trip here should miss out on promenading along the waterfront.
