Avenue of Stars
The Avenue of Stars is a scenic seaside promenade in the east of Tsim Sha Tsui. The Avenue of Stars stretches a total length of 440 meters (1,440 feet) from Hong Kong Museum of Art to New World Centre. It models after the Hollywood Avenue of Stars in Los Angeles. The name and hand prints of the distinguished Hong Kong film stars, like Jackie Chan and Andy Lau, are embedded in special plaques and arranged chronologically on the avenue, in order to commemorate the history of the film industry in Hong Kong. Apart from the handprints, visitors can also enjoy thousands of exhibitions related to films, large-scale arts and cultural shows co-organized with overseas institutions, diverse local music, dance, and theater shows.

Stepping into the entrance of the Avenue of Stars, you can see the 6 meters (19 feet) high bronze statue of the goddess of Hong Kong Film Awards. On the middle of the avenue stand a series of statues with the theme of the film shooting, including a director, photographers, and lighting engineers. There are some statues of the superstars of Hong Kong. For example, the statue of Bruce Lee, the most famous one, is shaped as the film “Enter the Dragon”, with a height of 2 meters (6.5 feet). The statue was built in 2005 to commemorate his 65-year-old birthday. You can imitate Bruce Lee’s action, and pose for a photo with him. The statues of Hong Kong cartoon character, McDull, and Anita Mui, a popular actor and singer in Hong Kong, were erected on the Avenue of Stars, as well.

Strolling along the Avenue of Stars, feeling the sea breeze, you can enjoy the bright night view on the other side of Victoria Harbor, and the bustling star ferries over the sea. Due to its relatively advantageous location, it is also a great place to admire the large-scale lighting music show “Symphony of Lights”. The out-door show begins at 20:00 every day, and lights up Hong Kong’s night sky.
