Harbour City is a shopping centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It occupies the lower levels of a series of office blocks and hotels, comprising several parts: Marco Polo Hotels, Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre, the Gateway and the Pacific Club Kowloon. The complex is located along the west side of Canton Road, stretching from the Star Ferry Pier in the south to China Hong Kong City in the north.

The centre is built on the site of the Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown, one of colonial Hong Kong's original commercial wharfage and dockside warehousing complexes. Harbour City is still owned by The Wharf (Holdings) Limited, which was formed in 1886 to operate the godown but has since grown to be a major commercial force in Hong Kong.

The mall features many branded boutiques, such as Cerruti 1881, Gieves & Hawkes, Kent & Curwen, D'Urban, MCM (Mode Creation Munich), Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo, Shiatzy Chen, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Polo Ralph Lauren, Versace, Burberry, and Hugo Boss. The mall also has two cinemas at both ends, the Grand Ocean and the Grand Gateway; both are operated by Golden Harvest. It is home to the largest Toys "R" Us location in Hong Kong, and there is a large Lane Crawford in the Ocean Terminal portion of the mall.
