Tsim Sha Tsui Info:
Tsim Sha Tsui (Chinese: 尖沙咀), is an urban area in southern Kowloon, Hong Kong. The area is administratively part of the Yau Tsim Mong District. Tsim Sha Tsui East is a piece of land reclaimed from the Hung Hom Bay now east of Tsim Sha Tsui. The area is bounded north by Austin Road and in the east by Hong Chong Road and Cheong Wan Road.
Geographically, Tsim Sha Tsui is a cape on the tip of the Kowloon Peninsula pointing towards Victoria Harbour, opposite Central. Several villages had been established in this location before Kowloon was ceded to the British Empire in 1860. Tsim Sha Tsui in Chinese means sharp sandspit. It was also known as Heung Po Tau (香埗頭), i.e. a port for exporting incense tree.
Tsim Sha Tsui is a major tourist hub in Hong Kong, with many high-end shops and restaurants that cater to tourists. Many of Hong Kong’s museums are located in the area.
Hong Kong West Kowloon Station Info:
West Kowloon station, also known as Hong Kong West Kowloon (Chinese: 香港西九龍) and West Kowloon, is the terminus of the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail Link (HSR). It is the only station in the Hong Kong section and connects to the mainland China section through a dedicated tunnel. It was constructed by MTR Corporation.
The terminal railway station is located in Jordan, West Kowloon, north of the proposed West Kowloon Cultural District between the Airport Express and Tung Chung Line’s Kowloon Station and the West Rail Line’s Austin Station. The footprint of the new station extends into the basement of the West Kowloon Cultural District.
The originally scheduled opening date of 2012 was delayed until 2015 following the shake-up of high-speed rail construction across China after the 2011 Wenzhou train collision. While construction of the station was still planned for completion in 2015, major flooding occurred in the railway tunnels under construction on 30 March 2014. This resulted in great damage to the tunnel boring machines. Internal MTR reports suggested causes were incomplete tender drawings, site surveys, and planning before construction began. The station was formally opened on 4 September 2018 and high-speed trains started to run to destinations in Mainland China from 23 September 2018
