“Walk of Fame of the East”
Review of Avenue of the Stars - CLOSED

Avenue of the Stars
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I went there with my sister and her couple of friends on 29 July 2014. It was evening during the time when we arrived from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR. Before to able to see the statues and ornaments of the "Hollywood's Walk of Fame of the East", you be able to sky the panoramic view of Hong Kong Skyline.

The skyline is even more beautiful when it is at night time when it is beautiful lighted up.
There were many people there taking pictures and waiting for the Symphony of Lights show at 8 p.m. daily. Along the board way, you be able to see statues of Bruce Lee, Anita Mui (Mei Yan Fang), cartoon character McDull, and various status showing the filming history of Hong Kong.
Do look down on the floor and like the "Hollywood's Walk of Fame", you will be able to see name of various celebrities who contributed to the Hong Kong filming industry. You will see names, handprints and/or signatures of celebrities like, Run Run Shaw, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, Andy Lau, Aaron Wok, Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li, oldies celebrities and others. However, not all plaques have the handprints and signatures as this attraction is quite new and before it's opened, some of the celebrity may no longer existed. Other than that, there are also exhibits describing the Hong Kong filming industries history.
There souvenir shops and benches to sit on along the way.

This place of interest would be very interesting to those who are familiar with the "East Hollywood". But never the less, most people when there for the amazing view of the skyline or Symphony of Lights. Do go there during evening as weather will be much cooler as you wait for the skyline to light up.

I enjoyed the visit . It was pretty hot , so we waited until the sun was setting before we return and the buildings across the water actually makes for some pretty views. While it's not the reason why I visited, I was fascinated looking out for the names of stars with a star on the pavement.

This is in the same line as the Hollywood walk of Stars this one is mainly stars of Chinese film and TV. You will probably only know one or two names but all the same it is an enjoyable walk with a great view of the city. It is busy at night and the walk gives a stunning view of Hong Kong harbour and is a great spot for the illuminating skyscrapers which happens around 8pm on certain nights.

However, the views of the harbor and North Hong Kong Island straight across are quite good. Loosely modeled on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, this harbourside quay has Hong Kong movie stars' hand prints and stars in concrete along the waterfront. Europeans, Americans and others from outside Asia will no doubt recognise Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and Jet Li, but beyond that, unless you are a Hong Kong Chinese language movie aficionado, not much here for you. But it is a pleasant stroll and there is no entry fee or gate.

It's one of the most tiring walks in our whole trip because it was mid day when we visited Avenue of the Stars but it's all worth the visit. The view of Hong Kong skyscrapers are still awesome even in broad daylight. Maybe it's because of the sea breeze and the rush of the people and hand prints of the stars, even though we barely recognize them. All chinese stars. Lol. No entrance fee required. Refreshments are available at both ends of the avenue and at the one end is a Central Ferry Terminal going to HongKong Island.
