The Avenue of Stars is one of the great attractions in Hong Kong. It gives one a magnificent view of the Victoria Bay and the skyscrapers of Hong Kong’s Central district during the day and most especially at night. The Symphony of Lights can be seen at the Avenue of Stars every 8pm at night. In honor of the film industry of Hong Kong, the Avenue of Stars pay tribute to actors, directors, and people behind its movie industry. There where the Avenue of Stars stand is the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade built by the New World Group in 1982. But in 2003, a grand project was undertaken that costs $40 million and delighted millions of locals and tourists. The Avenue features the nine milestones of Hong Kong’s entertainment industry, from the silent era to the '90s.
More than 80 hand prints are laid down along the Avenue which includes famous stars like Jacky Chan, Jet Li, and movie director John Woo. Apart from the hand prints, we also saw movie-related sculptures like that of Bruce Lee, a scene about film shooting, a movie camera, and a movie reel. At that time, celebrities Leslie Cheung, and Tony Leung were featured at the Avenue. Various entertainments are also provided in front of the sculpture of the Hong Kong Film Awards. There are also souvenir shops and kiosks found along the avenue.
