    WHERE HERITAGE MEETS MODERNITY

    Situated in the historic heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, The Camphora commands a coveted address in one of Hong Kong’s most vibrant retail and commercial districts. Its 24 serviced studios are pet-friendly and feature spacious private balconies. Not only is the property a step away from prime shopping belt Canton Road, the urban refuge of Kowloon Park, and Tsim Sha Tsui Station, but its location and architecture are steeped in rich local history. A beautifully appointed building that makes statements in sustainability, heritage, and design, The Camphora is the perfect place to call home.

    UNUSUAL FOLIAGE

    The property takes its name from 12 camphor trees, which have been recognised on Hong Kong’s list of Old and Valuable Trees for their 130 years of age. Known as “feng shui trees”, the species is relatively uncommon among older trees in Hong Kong. This row of evergreen trees provides shelter and shade over busy Haiphong Road.

    LOCAL HERITAGE

    Renamed in 1909 after a northern Vietnamese port for its strong commercial ties to Hong Kong, Haiphong Road features a number of important historical sites. Within nearby Kowloon Park, for instance, there’s the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, which evolved from what was meant to be a temporary Museum of History site in the 1890s.
