Middle Road (traditional Chinese: 中間道; simplified Chinese: 中间道; pinyin: Zhōngjiān Dào; Cantonese Yale: jung1 gaan1 dou6) is a street in the southern part of Tsim Sha Tsui of Kowloon in Hong Kong, across Nathan Road and parallel to Salisbury Road.

History[edit]

The road was formerly at the bay between Blackhead Point and the hill where the Former Marine Police Headquarters Compound stands. The bay was reclaimed for the construction of the former Kowloon Station of the Kowloon-Canton Railway while the Peninsula Hotel was built on the reclamation between Kowloon Station and Middle Road.

Features[edit]

At the Blackhead Point end of the road stands the Mariner's Club and Hermes House.
