Top ways to experience Harbour City and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an abundant number of high-end retail stores selling designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also contains a diverse range of attractions for the entire family. Whether taking a walk in Kowloon Park, exploring museums, going shopping or grabbing a bite to eat – Tsim Sha Tsui has something for everyone.

Sbakery by Mama Soo is a local bakery that has a pop up near the L3 southern entrance to the Ocean Terminal section of the Harbour City Shopping Mall. They are open from 1.30pm to 8.30pm daily or until they sell out of their thick, creamy and delicious NYC style cheesecake slices. We have tried their slices from this pop-up as well as the new flagship shop recently opened in Tai Ping Shan in Sheung Wan recently. They have been just great on both occasions.

The slices are a bit pricey (HK$88) each but they are huge portions, thick and heavy, think Junior's in NYC when it comes to volume and texture with beautifully thick and sweet graham cracker crust. The original cheesecake is a nice balance of sweetness and sour. Even better in my opinion is the Banoffee Slice, which is a layered cheesecake with bananas. Oh my, this is good but do be ready to share as the slices are too large for one person to finish in a single sitting.

Note: This pop up at Harbour City is right at the entrance/exit above the escalators. Look for the Dan Ryan restaurant if helpful. It is across the foyer next to exiting doors. Otherwise see pictures submitted to assist in finding the Sbakery pop up.

Cupping Room is a fairly popular coffee shop with several branches spread around Hong Kong Island. They have a place on LV3 of the Ocean Terminal section of Harbour City in TST. This Cupping Room is open from 8am to 8pm (Mon - Fri) and 9am to 8pm (Sat & Sun) and has an open seating area.

As for their coffee, we recently stopped by for an espresso and cortado (white coffee). Neither measured up to what is served at their branches on the island, wouldn't return for coffees here again as such.

However, what makes this Cupping Room worth visiting is that they carry La Viña Bakery Basque style cheesecake amongst their counter foods. This is one of the two or three best Basque cheesecakes in the city imo. We had a take-away cheesecake from this Cupping Room recently. While they didn't package the dessert very well, we did find it to taste expectedly very good, just like what we've found from those purchased directly at La Viña in Central District. Would call upon this Cupping Room again for La Viña Bakery Basque style cheesecakes when in TST and in the mood.

One of the interesting places to visit at Harbour City shopping mall in TST is the Gallery by the Harbour, a small second floor space used for art display and exhibitions. This is a single room hall with space to exhibition 15-20 works.

Presently, The Gallery is showcasing the 2019 Hong Kong Photo contest sponsored by National Geographic Wheelock. Photos displayed present various landscapes, society & cultural scenes around the city and are of very good quality. The exhibition is small so a 10 minute visit to see the present exhibition is sufficient, something well worth allowing time for if you enjoy the arts and plan to be at Harbour City in the near future.

One of the larger malls in Hong Kong, if not the largest. You can stroll around all day long and enjoy The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. The Star Ferry stop is located in front of the shopping mall.

Harbour City is a huge collective shopping space occupying the lower level floors of several large buildings along Canton Road between the China Hong Kong City building and the Star Ferry Pier. It includes 2 million sq. feet of shop space sprawling through the Ocean Terminal, Ocean Center and Gateway Arcade. Opening hours are around 10am to 10pm daily.

This mall is massive and takes hours simply to walk the full floor space. There are around 450 retail shops, 70+ restaurants and eateries, an art gallery, observation deck and two hotels. It is also directly connected to the cruise terminal.

In recent years, Harbour City has become a favourite venue for mainland Chinese shoppers. At times walking the halls of the mall has felt daunting due very crowded conditions often found here. However, at present as the city deals with the Coronavirus outbreak and the lack of tourists in the city, Harbour City is rather quiet, making for much more relaxed visits and shopping for local Hong Kongers.

Worth note that Harbour City regularly decorates the mall front facing the Star Ferry Pier with interesting seasonal and holiday decorations. More decor is usually found within the mall interior but out in front of the Star Ferry Pier is where you find the best. Related, presently, there are several works by the French urban artist Invader scattered around the Harbour City properties. Just keep your eyes peeled for his signature pixelated video game characters (ie Pacman and Space Invader) found inside and outside the mall.

Note: You'll find a list of the businesses with shops and restaurants at Harbour City on their website.

In this shopping mall you have a feeling of kind of being on a ship with water views outside the picture windows.otherwise a fairly pleasant and large mall with emphasis on high end. A bit hard to navigate around. Poor signage.for some strange reasons men's and women's toilets located in completely different different wings of the floor. If a couple uses the restrooms at the same time good luck trying to reunite in the narrow hallways going in all directions.

Hong Kong is such a great place to visit. Harbour City is so cool. The boats are everywhere and the ferry is the best. The food and sites and people are the BEST! There is so much shopping and markets to shop at. The food is fantastic. I can't wait to go again.

I wo only go back for a specific shop or restaurant, wouldn’t just try to walk around in a casual manner. Lot of construction surrounding and that might have added to the confusion of dealing with crowds etc.

Went because I was looking for Kiko Cosmetics - Found that the shopping mall has small kiosk-like shops where tou can find less mainstream items! Worth a trip!
