Hong Kong Tour | Offbeat Attractions | The Avenue of Stars Hong Kong

Not as bad as you might think, the highlight is the Bruce Lee Statue, you might recognise some of the "stars" and you do get some magnificent views of Hong Kong Island

 

 Very touristy but honestly it is not as bad as people say

As long as you have low expectations the Avenue of Stars is worth your time, particularly on a sunny day...  

First up, this is not as good as the Hollywood Walk of Fame but then again how could it be? our version is based on Hong Kong / Chinese Movie Stars / Directors and unless you are a real fan only a handful will be known to you. 

I do the walk every week but my needs are different, I love the views of Hong Kong Island you can get on the Avenue of Stars, on a sunny, dry day they make your spine tingle. 

These days the crowds start arriving at 8.30am and it can get very busy but it is fun watching the Mainland Chinese Tourists really embrace the experience! 

... oh, did I mention the Bruce Lee statue? Bruce Lee is a genuine Hong Kong legend so get your picture taken next to the Statue.

So, on with the show!!
