Don't come during the summer. The high humidity will make you sweat the instant you are exposed to the outside air, and will make you eternally grateful for every building and public transport vehicle you step into for the airconditioned interiors.

Cool city but seems very artificially blown up by money. I hate cities where normal people cant live normally anymore. It seems to be making all the mistakes London made. After all its built based on the British mentality. I prefer Singapore or Bangkok or maybe even Tokyo.

From the video title I assumed it would be about upcoming or recently developed neighborhood. Situated right at the harbour, TST has been “hottest” for decades already, hence all the underdeveloped pictures shown here are in black and white.

It's very weird to separate Hong Kong Island and Kowloon as two places (which actually they're). The fact that Tsim Sha Tsui or the Kowloon Peninsula was developed is because the signing of the treaty of Peking, which ceased Kowloon Peninsula to the British. Nowadays, both Hong Kong Island & Kowloon Peninsula are extremely crowded (especially Kowloon, according to government census, the population density is higher than Hong Kong Island). Hong Kong mainly develop New Territories to solve the problem, not Kowloon.
Patrick Kong (1 month ago)
I'm a resident in Hong Kong. If anything, I personally do not recommend going to aqua HK or the Chinese restaurant before that. This is due to astronomically high prices there and sure you may argue that the view is nice, you can go to tst harbour and soak up the view there either by the traditional ferry which costs next to nothing or just standing there and absorbing the view as well as the fresh smell of the sea. Hong Kong is a nice place to stay but just beware of the heat and the density of the area, if you do come to Hong Kong, I would recommend visiting places like Mong Kok or Causeway bay if you would like to shop for either normal or high end brands. Have a good one.
文子MtzCherry (1 month ago)
sad that the video didn't mention much about the cultural stuff we can find in TST and only focus on the price...

The rapidly rising Hong Kong air pollution has recently become a major issue, and Hong Kong has quickly become one of the worst polluted places on earth. In addition to emissions from its local motor vehicles, marine vessels and power plants, Hong Kong's air pollution is mainly contributed by deadly air pollution from mainland China.

Megacities actually do get merged the only thing is that it's done to give name to an urban region. For example Boston, NYC, Philly, D.C. and their surrounding suburbs are in what's called the Bos-Wash region.

tocrob (1 month ago)
J C - we don't know the real story. Some may not be "legal" resident , banned from social/public housing (possible?) or too wealthy( assets ). That elderly person would receive ~USD400.00 per month from the government and a subsidized rental flat for USD$50-$100 per month from the housing authority. Transports, senior activities and typical healthcare services get additional subsidies which make them virtually free.

trust me you dont wanna live here if you are fucking poor lol. HK has the highest relative poverty rate in the world, the highest gini coeffient. Yea its fine just being a tourist you can't afford anything if you work and live here unless you are the capitalist class. Go visit sham shui po/SSP not fucking TST to see the real side of HK where you will see old people pushing trolleys of trash and selling them for PENNIES (not even kidding) while the HK government (which has some of the highest amount of financial reserves) chose not to take care of these eldery ppl. TST is for mainland tourists craving for Dior and LVs of the world. The city is dying and turning into another Chinese city controlled by the communist party. The young generation is all dying to leave the city and emmigrate once they can saved up some money. These touristy videos are great but if you wanna know the real side of the city you got a long way to go son.
tocrob (1 month ago)
they are able to leave because Hong Kong has excess of human capitals. Top 5 in PISA assessments and 4 of the top 50 universities in the world are in Hong Kong. Its PPP per capita is higher than the US ( Shenzhen should surpass HK within next 8 years on that measure) .
