Hong Kong: Avenue of Stars & Clock Tower

Avenue of Stars

Every tourist visiting Hong Kong will definitely visit the waterside promenade. I head out to The Avenue of Stars nearing the golden hour; the best time to take a stroll. The Avenue of Stars pays tribute to famous celebrities while visitors can enjoy the panoramic view of the city’s most iconic sight.

Avenue of Stars

This 400-metre long stretch of waterside promenade along the northern side of Victoria Harbour, in front of the New World Centre at Tsim Sha Tsui is Hong Kong’s version of Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Plaques of most living stars contain handprints set in cement and autographs.

Starbucks

If you decided to take a break while waiting for Symphony of Light show, this Starbucks outlet located at the eastern end of the avenue is the best place to enjoy a cuppa coffee amidst the city’s panoramic view.

Symphony of lights

The Avenue is the best viewing point for the free 14-minute light and sound show “A Symphony of Light”, featuring 45 prominent buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour, nightly at 8pm.

Clock Tower

Walk along the promenade towards the Star Ferry Pier and you will find the 44-metres tall  old Clock Tower monument which was erected in 1915 as part of the Kowloon–Canton Railway terminus. The Clock Tower is listed as a Declared Monument in 1990 and located next to the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry pier
