Thanks to the efforts of Hong Kong’s movie industry over the past century, many in Asia and farther afield are familiar with the city’s sights before they’ve even set foot here. The Avenue of Stars pays tribute to the names that helped make Hong Kong the ‘Hollywood of the East’.
Redesigned by renowned landscape architect James Corner, together with other international and local designers, and re-opened in 2019, Avenue of the Stars has more than a hundred celebrity handprints to take you on a dazzling ‘journey to the stars’. The Hong Kong Film Awards Association statue and the star statues are decorated with flowing-water features that, in concert with the soft light, perfectly echo Bruce Lee’s philosophy of ‘be like water‘, and Anita Mui’s evocative song ‘Years Flow Like Water‘. You can even take a photo and interact with these two superstars using Augmented Reality technology. You can also enjoy the captivating harbour view and the starry sky together with the Mcdull statue.
Avenue of the Stars’ glamorous movie theme is complemented perfectly by the splendour of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline, of which the promenade also offers spectacular views.
