The Avenue of Stars is one of Hong Kong’s more recent attractions, having been created from an existing promenade walkway on Kowloon. When it opened in 2004, it quickly became a popular place to view the Hong Kong skyline at harbour level. Over the years since then, the avenue has been developed further with several notable attractions now to see. Top of the list is the bronze statue of Bruce Lee which was erected in 2005. However, for us the best thing here is still the view. This is also the best place to view the free Symphony of Lights show.
Other features on the avenue now include a 4.5 metre tall replica of the statuette given out at the Hong Kong film awards, bronze statues of a film crew at work which you can have your photo with and red pillars which tell the history of the Hong Kong film industry. There are also the stars themselves which are embedded in the walkway. Look out for names like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and John Woo. To be honest, unless your a big fan of the Hong Kong film industry, you won’t recognise most of the names here but it’s still a great place to be.
There’s a lovely atmosphere an the Avenue of Stars at night and if there’s a cool breeze from the harbour that’s usually most welcome! You’ll also find photographers here ready to take your picture with the Hong Kong skyline behind.
