Formerly known as Heung Po Tau, Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the commercial and civic centres of Hong Kong; many hotels and transport hubs were built in Tsim Sha Tsui back in the British rule era. For example, the former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower stands next to Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier, one of the few remaining colonial icons in Tsim Sha Tsui, and a popular location for many Hong Kong dramas and films. Near the clock tower is 1881, which used to be the headquarters of the Hong Kong Marine Police and has been revitalised into a shopping and tourist attraction, where you can dine and browse the shops and getting to know more about Hong Kong's century-old history.
