Jogging on the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade

Looking south from the footbridge linking Hung Hum with Tsim Sha Tsui East (尖沙咀東). From this point, it is about 2 kilometers along the waterfront promenade, pass the New World Hotel and the Intercontinental Hotel through to the Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry. It is also about 2 kilometers in the opposite direction. Starting from the footbridge northwards, pass the Hung Hom Ferry, Whampoa Garden (黃埔花園) and Laguna Verde (海逸豪園) through to the Fishermen’s Wharf.

So it is a nice jog of 4 kilometers from the Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry to the Fishermen’s Wharf, most of it along the waterfront. If you live in Kowloon, this is probably the best place for jogging, and a good way to prepare for the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon next year.

The view is great, and it keeps changing. Depending on the time of day, you will see people fishing, walking dogs, jogging, exercising, and plenty of tourists. To avoid the crowds, go early in the morning.
