In the 1980s and 1990s, Tsim Sha Tsui East was dominated by business, entertainment and tourism. At night, entertainment venues, such as bars, nightclubs, karaoke halls and theatres, were the liveliest places. Nowadays, Tsim Sha Tsui East, in addition to a major commercial area, also welcomes hotels, restaurants and large shopping malls. In recent years, the large-scale expansion of transportation system and the revonation of Avenue of Stars have been carried out in this district. With the water taxi sightseeing route opened in July 2021 and the two existing exhibition halls, Tsim Sha Tsui East has become a place good enough for dining, shopping, leisure, sightseeing, culture and art. Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Museum of History, and Avenue of Stars will be introduced to tourists in this route.

The permanent exhibitions in the Hong Kong Museum of History include the history of Hong Kong, archaeological discoveries in Hong Kong and southern China, precious cultural relics and materials, and folk customs as well as stories in Hong Kong.

Over a hundred superstar artists, including Jackie Chan, Chow Yun-fat, Andy Lau, and Tony Leung, have printed their hands. The figures of the famous superstars Bruce Lee and Anita Mui were cast into bronze statues for everyone to visit and take pictures. At the end of 2021, a musical fountain show called "Water of Stars" was also added, allowing everyone to rejoice in the beautiful fountain effects, charming lighting and orchestra performance. There is a pier on the Avenue of Stars for water taxis that provide water sightseeing services at Victoria Harbour so that tourists can ride to enjoy the bright night view of Victoria Harbour.
