    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Yau Ma Tei is the very heart of Kowloon. Time-worn and authentic, this vibrant and colourful enclave lies just beyond the glitz of the Tsim Sha Tsui harbour front. Choc-a-bloc with historical buildings, 100 year-old markets and charming themed streets and shops, a visit to Yau Ma Tei is like stepping back in time.
