Why Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront Podium Garden is special ?
The Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront Podium Garden is a garden located on the podium deck of the East Tsim Sha Tsui MRT Station. Opened in August 2007, TST East Waterfront Podium Garden is a part of the Public Transport Interchange (PTI) system in Tsim Sha Tsui East built on the site of former Wing On Plaza Garden. The PTI contains two footbridges, one across Salisbury Road linking the Podium Garden with Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade in the waterfront, the other one across Chatham Road South connecting with Middle Road Children’s Playground. Beneath the podium garden is a bus terminus. The podium garden is one of the best places to ponder the magnificent views of Victoria Harbour.
