In Kowloon, there is an abundance in stores, restaurants, luxury hotels, entertainment centers and vibrant shopping malls, like Nathan Road, the famous shopping street in Hong Kong. Most things are concentrated in Tsim Sha Tsui (meaning elephant trunk), located on the southern edge of Kowloon and is a main tourist attraction.
Especially popular is the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade, on the edge of Victoria Bay. Many believe it is the best vantage point on the skyscrapers of Hong Kong. This magnificent promenade stretches along Victoria Harbor, on the side of the Kowloon Peninsula.
The Star Ferry connects Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, which leaves the pier on the promenade and heads for one of the docks at Victoria Harbor. This shuttle is an attraction in itself. On the cruise, you can see the magnificent Kowloon skyline on the one hand and Hong Kong on the other.
At the same time, the Emperor spend some time on the peninsula. Legend tells that he looked around and saw 8 mountain ranges. It is traditional to believe in China that inside mountains lays a dragon. Since the Emperor himself is considered a dragon, there were 9 dragons, and since the southern part of the peninsula has been named so, Kowloon, nine dragons.
