This has already been discussed to death at Talk:Political divisions of China. -- ran (talk) 20:58, Jan 26, 2005 (UTC)

Would be good to add a map to show where Tsim Sha Tsui is. Mandel 21:01, 2 October 2005 (UTC)


I would really like to know where this duty free street is in TST? does it really exist? can I get cheap cigarettes????? novacatz 16:12, 18 November 2005 (UTC) (who doesn't really believe it exists)

I would think about Mody Road.. but basically all products except things link cigarettes and liquors are duty-free in Hong Kong. — Instantnood 20:15, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

--- I edited the article a bit to improve the sentence structure and remove some awkward phrasing. This still reads more like a tourist brochure than an encyclopedic article. At the least, it needs to be augmented with sections on history, demographics, and major industries/employers. --Kharker 21:53, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

The image size is too small and there is a lack of photos. Could someone take or add a photo of TST skyline from Hong Kong Island. I would also like to see some pictures of East Tsim Sha Tsui. --Terence Ong 10:52, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Pronounciation[edit]

The article states that the English pronounciation begins with an s sound, which is incorrect in my experience, it is pronounced with more of a j sound. 199.43.32.86 (talk) 18:52, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

When I was there in 94-96 everyone simply pronounced it "chim sah choy", and that included all the native speakers we were with. I could see an official pronounciation being slightly different, but we were laughed at trying to pronounce it as the article suggests. 216.116.87.110 (talk) 13:05, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
