Kowloon Things to Do: 96 reviews and 260 photos
The Avenue of Stars is located at the Southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui, where it is built right into Victoria Harbour. There are several reasons to go there and enjoy a pleasurable stroll: It offers a wonderful view of the skyline on Hong Kong Island and is one of the best places to watch Hong Kong's nightly A Symphony of Lights laser show. You will see the name plaques of all the big stars of Hong Kong cinema there. Hawkers are officially forbidden to molest people on the Avenue, thus it is an (almost) hawker-free zone.
It was modelled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is located along the Victoria Harbour waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. The Avenue of Stars starts right after the Hong Kong Museum of Art and merges seamlessly into the a harbour promenade which will take you all the way to Tsim Sha Tsui East.
At the start of the Avenue you will see the Hong Kong Film Award sculpture. While strolling along, watch out for the name plaque of your favourite actor or shop in the Jacky Chan memorabilia store. Quite often, musicians will hold performances either on the stage right at the entrance to the Avenue or, if they are ronin ("masterless") musicians, further along the Avenue in front of the New World Center. What some musicians lack in skill they make up with enthusiasm. Since Hong Kong is a karaoke-based society, everybody knows how difficult it is to perform in public, and the audience will honour every genuine effort with sincere applause.
