Travel in China: Avenue of Stars星光大道
The top 10 attractions of Hong Kong include Avenue of Stars, The Peak, Ocean Park Hong Kong, Hong Kong Diseneyland, Ladies' Market, Temple Street Night Market, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple and Clock Tower.
Thanks to the efforts of Hong Kong’s movie industry over the past century, many in Asia and farther afield are familiar with the city’s sights before they’ve even set foot here. The Avenue of Stars pays tribute to the names that helped make Hong Kong the ‘Hollywood of the East’, while giving visitors a panoramic view of the city’s most iconic sight: its glorious skyline, dramatically set against The Peak.
With commemorative plaques, celebrity handprints, descriptive milestones, movie memorabilia, a life-size statue of kung fu action hero Bruce Lee and a bronze rendering of popular cartoon character McDull, the Avenue of Stars fittingly sets the glamour of Hong Kong’s film industry against the captivating dazzle of Victoria Harbour.
The atmosphere here is always lively, with around 30 performances, including music, drama and dance, organised each month. This is also the perfect vantage point to catch the A Symphony of Lights multimedia show.
