Nathan Road, named after governor Sir Matthew Nathan, runs directly up to Boundary Street, the northern limit of the British colony prior to the leasing of the New Territories in 1898. Since everyone thought such a wide road was unnecessary at that time, Nathan Road became known as "Nathan's Folly." Today, this is one of the busiest commercial roads in Hong Kong; the lower end of the road is known as the Golden Mile because of the plethora of storefront neon signs. A walk along Nathan Road will reveal a shopping paradise with many boutiques, camera shops, street markets and restaurants crammed in side-by-side.
Nathan Road is the main thoroughfare in Kowloon, There is a lot of shops and hotels in and around this district. It is also a stop of ferry linking Kowloon and Hong Kong island as well as a terminal of Tim Sha Tsui station. When i came to Hongkong, i arrive at Luxury European Hostel - Nathan Road.

We spent our 10 day stay on Nathan Road @ the Golden Mile Holiday Inn. This location puts you almost in the middle of Hong Kong. Easy access to most anything including a short walk to a local Starbucks. I even picked up a hooker the second night right on Nathan Road outside the hotel.......You gotta love HK!!!!!!
Nathan Road is a blast. I stayed at the Prudential in Feb.,08. All the places to eat. All the shopping you could ever want and more. I only stayed 2 nights but you can be sure that next time I go will be for a few nights more. Hong Kong is a wonderful city.
like the shopping area around Nathan Road and the food selection is fantastic.
it's always crowded and no space to walk
the street is too narrow you almost have to bump someone's back in order to walk sometimes.
Stayed in a hotel(Prudential) Nathan Road for 3 days, 4 level shopping center was at the lower floor of our hotel, My wife had the time of her life shopping along Nathan Road and in all the markets nearby. We loved eating dimsum at the ground floor of a hotel across the street(Shamrock) for breakfast. Best dimsum we ever tasted.
