The idea of the Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong was taken from the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California, USA. It is full of stars dedicated to honoured celebrities of the Hong Kong film industry along the way.
The idea of the Avenue of Stars started in 1982, when the New World Group built an attractive promenade along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. Thanks to investments, the project was implemented and the official opening of the avenue was held in April 2004. There were names of 73 celebrities, chosen by the Hong Kong Film Award Association, but the list has increased up to more than 100 people immortalized in the Avenue of Stars.
It is impossible to miss the Avenue of Stars if you decide to visit the Victoria Harbour, as it is located in the same place. Besides the famous Avenue of Stars, there are also other attractions along the seafront, such as the Clock Tower, the Cultural Centre, the Space Museum and the Museum of Art. The statue of the famous actor, Bruce Lee, especially deserves some special attention.
