Good morning, Tsim Sha Tsui (5)

In the foreground, the old Yaumatei, with pawn shops, traditional medicine, dried sea food, ... and the wet market. In the distance, the new West Kowloon with sky-high (in height as well as price) apartments, connection, power, and status-hungry inhabitants. I know Yaumatei and West Kowloon are not part of TsimShaTsui, but they are close enough.

The question is: Which is the real Hong Kong? Perhaps I am an old dinosaur, but I know what I prefer.
