The Avenue of the Stars is a promenade along the Kowloon waterfront near to Tsim Sha Tsui East MTR station. It is basically a copy of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where various stars of the silver screen have hand prints made into the concrete of the pavement. The Hong Kong version, of course, concentrates on East Asian film stars, so it is likely that you wont know most of the names. Two that you will recognize are those of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. However, for the western tourist, you needn't worry about recognizing the names as the views of the city from this location are fantastic. The site is probably the most popular among photographers wanting to capture the Hong Kong skyline. It is truly an amazing location. From nearby the Avenue of Stars, you can book boat tours of Victoria Harbour. Also nearby is the Space Musium and Hong Kong Art Gallery.
